Did a savage Vinyassa class tonight, was great to be back

Am getting much better at down dog and tree pose. Also was able to grab my left leg with right hand while in a low lunge (not sure what it's called).

Thursday's practice made me realise I don't hate the plank, I hate the side plank and the plank really is grand! I can feel I'm getting better overall though.

Disadvantages to attending a city centre studio: police car with sirens on racing past during savasana!

Amazing practice tonight. I'm positioning myself better but need more guidance so need to work on that.

I did all my balance poses without falling over once. That has actually never happened before, I have terrible balance.

*happy face*

balance poses are still by far my worst! my good days I lose my balance only a couple of times,my bad days I lose my balance constantly. and I don't even do the full balance poses, I do the easy version!

But anyway, my last few classes in my forward bends I've been able to touch my knees with my nose with just a little pressure from my instructor! considering I couldn't even reach my toes with my fingertips when I started yoga, I'm pretty delighted with that. Now to be able to grab my wrists past my feet in a forward bend...challenge accepted!

Went to a workshop about a week ago on a Saturday afternoon, then attended a different yoga class to my usual one on Wednesday evening. Realised that my brain has taken the standard Ashtanga sequencing as The Law, and that in classes with a different structure it kinda goes a bit WTF for a while!

I held half moon for 5 breaths last night on both sides. I really felt a difference with my balance last night.

Bikram yesterday was 80% male, something I have never seen before.

Guys are much noisier than girls.

Started back at Pilates class this week after about a 10 month break, couldn't find class to suit schedule. Was good to get back to it. Felt brilliant from it last time and core was very strong. Intend to practice twice a week when not in class. Looking forward to next week.
