2011 | First Yoga Class for the Year

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.

Best of luck with the new job. Location is not at HO right? If your division has long time lower level staff - remember, you can't teach an old dog new tricks. If you want them to do more, introduce new tasks to them very slowly. Less resistance that way.

Yoga will help you with those new challenges! I can't wait to go back after I have my baby - even prenatal yoga was causing preterm contractions and I had to stop - I miss it every day. Good luck with the new job!
