Just what I needed

Today was vinyasa with Carley.

It has been a long time since I've taken a gentle class that goes deep into stretches and holds, and really works on the hips, and does a lot of seated poses. Today, that was just what we got with Carley. I had asked for something like this before class, and then a few other people asked for similar. And it was nice to have this kind of practice, since so many of our practices at a power yoga studio are high intensity.

I still feel like my body is very tight, but I am comparing myself to a room full of people who are younger than I am, many of whom have been doing yoga for years. I am not that tight. I am just keenly aware of the ways in which I am tight. There are advantages and disadvantages to awareness. But I think the advantages outweigh.
