Prana Power Yoga

 

Yoga is one of those things that I’ve been meaning to try out.  So, on the 4th of October of the year 2013, I went to my first Yoga class.

It was held in Central Square, so parking the bike was a bit concerning… especially since the homeless guy next to me kept trying to convince me that I should go buy him some booze from the liquor store next door… Sure, he was offering to give me $1 for it, but I think I’m good without, thank you very much.

Once the bike was parked I met up with Terese and headed inside to get changed and ready.  Honestly, there isn’t much of a story to my first yoga class… it was pretty straight forward.  It was a “power yoga” class, which I learned means “cardio in a slightly-warm room, doing poses that sound like what I’d hear in a movie with yoga in it”.  It was cool, and they used phrases like “become a tree” and “upward facing dog into downward facing dog”.  We didn’t even have a teacher, we instead had a “yoga guide” to aid us in our journey for the evening.

Yeah… I enjoyed it, but I don’t think that I’ll be heading back to this particular place.  It’s the same problem that I have with just joining a gym – I don’t like working out.  I like activities and movement, but not repetitive motions for the pure goal of working out.
