Yoga versus a workout

Today was vinyasa with Jackie.

Sometimes in a slow flow class, I need to remind myself that the yoga is not primarily for a workout. That's definitely a benefit I seek. But it should not be the primary focus. Nonetheless I find myself sometimes feeling like I didn't work hard enough when a class is mellow.

There will be plenty of difficult classes that fulfill the desire to get a workout. There are also classes where it's just about relaxing.

That said, a crescent lunge was awfully hard today. And she like to make us straighten our front leg, which is almost impossible for me without falling over.

Okay. That's all.
