New beginnings

Today was Gentle Flow with Chelle Swierz at Shakti Vinyasa Yoga.

My first yoga class as a Ballard resident. My first time at Shakti. But not my first class with Chelle. I decided that it would be nice to have one thing comfortable in the equation. It's a really nice studio, and I felt very much at home there. It's got a distinctly different vibe than the other places I've frequented. I could see myself becoming a member here? But I will take it slow and try out a few different teachers and classes before deciding whether to commit to a single studio again.

The class was 90 minutes, and it really went deep into the hips (at my request, actually), with far more variations of Lizard pose than one could imagine, spending maybe 15 to 20 minutes on those hip openers. It was good, and intense, and peaceful.

It's interesting knowing that this could become my home studio, and be part of the experience of being in a new place.
