My gym as a great selection of classes. Normally I’d say I’m up for trying anything from Abs to Zumba but I’ll admit I’ve been holding out on trying the anti-gravity Yoga. Partly because I really stink at Yoga, mostly because I’ve either reached a certain weight or a certain age, but I’m at a point in my life where putting my ass over my head is not such a great idea.
If you look at the posters though, they’re all smiling and relaxed and having so much fun! How could I not want to try it? Right? Right?!
Without exception, it was the hardest work out of my life. (I’m not the most balanced person in the world and the fact that I’m shaped like a weeble doesn’t help.) I’m going to have to keep going back for a long time to even get a handle on the basics and more importantly to build up the arm strength to keep up. I’d like to get to a point where I’m the one upside down and smiling, not the tangled, grunting, hopping, sweaty, red-faced mess who graced the studio last night. (Seriously, the wall to wall mirrors are not there for my benefit.)
If you’re looking for a challenge or just a really different workout, find an Anti-Gravity Yoga class. It’s worth it for the novelty, but I can’t possibly be this sore today without there being some physical benefit. (Right?)
