I had my first yoga class for 2011 at the local Iyengar studio. The irony is, I was working there last year, helping out with the administrative duties -- but I never went for class. I just felt uncomfortable practicing there when I am under their employment. It is just a neurotic and irrational feeling.
I am no longer working at the studio, and I finally found myself in class this evening for a 7:30 pm class. I am out of practice -- it has been two years since I neglected my yoga practice.
Iyengar style however, is different from the yoga taught at my previous yoga studio. I am still not sure what to do with the props -- where should I put the bolster? Do I need a bolster? How tight should my belt be? I'm just figuring things out as I go along.
I have one week before I start a new job. I expect a steep learning curve at the beginning. 2011 will definitely be a year of new experiences and new challenges.
