While I can stay uber-focused as I run or cycle, for some reason I become like that dog in the movie "Up" that is easily distracted when I'm doing yoga. Maybe it's because it's a bit slow moving for me and instead of finding my zen, I find myself making a mental "to-do" list. However, I decided to give yoga one more try, but this time with a little twist!
Antigravity yoga uses a hammock like apparatus that's hung from the ceiling in order to do various movements. Kinda like Pink during her 2010 Grammy Awards performance...well, except
that you're only about thee feet off the ground. As a first timer, I took the FUNdamentals class at Beyondyoga. It was a bit pricey at P650 for a walk in, but I suppose it's comparable to the price of other yoga classes. The class was an hour and 15 minutes long and our instructor (Michelle) was great!! She showed us the basics and took time to help each student while still making it a fun work out.
Apparently the cloth can hold the weight of a baby elephant. Nevertheless, I was waiting to crash and burn, maybe break a rib or two. Luckily, it is now proven that I don't weigh more than baby Dumbo! Yay me! We did four inversions (that's when you're upside down) while wrapping our legs around the cloth to hold us up. At first you're thinking "awww helllllll no", but it's actually not that hard and it feels amazing on the spine and hips! We also used the cloth to do a number of stretches.
It was a great class and I felt refreshed afterwards! I must say, a did feel a little taller because it's like I hit the reset button on my spine. There are other types of yoga classes too. Parking is easy and there's even a little cafe inside and some retail items!
Try something new, even if it's just once!! It's super fun! It makes you feel like a kid again...well, until you actually have to use your muscles and then you realize, nope...nope..not a kid anymore, hahaha!
