Moving in a direction

Today was vinyasa yoga with Zak Endicott at Shakti Vinyasa Yoga.

Below was a voice recording that I converted into text right after the class. Sort of a stream of consciousness. I now know why it's better to write instead of speak for certain things. Ramble, ramble, ramble.

This is probably my first time taking class with Zak in maybe 2 years since just before he left Be Luminous, and it was really a fantastic class... probably one of the best classes I can remember taking. The studio was peaceful and quiet. Even though it was a Friday evening at 5:45 there were only 12 people or so in the class. The energy was just really good. Quiet music, or no music at all. The inspiring positive energy of Zak's teaching and though, the class was actually quite difficult, it was very, very focused and relaxing, and I felt like even though I was being pushed to my limit that I was going to do everything that he said to do, in a safe way, and it was going to feel good. I just found myself very able to stay focused on the moment. This class, though it was just one class, probably sealed the deal for me in terms of wanting to become a member of the studio... so it seems like that's what I'm going to do. It was nice to feel centered in a class, and to feel completely focused. It's been a long time since I've actually felt that, so just enjoying the experience and looking forward to it again.
