OMG Why did it take me so long to take another class with Lisa?
Tonight's Yin was beautiful. Perfectly thought out and sequenced.
Thank you Lisa!
Yoga has taught me many things. One lesson in particular is to “Never say never.” While I was in the Army, I performed a lot of challenging tasks to include jumping out of aircraft, while in flight. Fun, adventurous and definitely an adrenalin rush. That type of fun plus other physical activities led to a couple of vertebrates out of line. During each of my physical therapy sessions, a Physical Therapist would ask if I had considered yoga to relive the problems with my neck. I would roll my eyes and think “NO WAY.” “I ain’t doing no yoga.” “You thinking I’m going to move to Boulder.”
As a member of my local YMCA, I noticed yoga was on the schedule, so decide to check on a class. Since it was free, I felt I didn’t have anything to lose. After my third class I sensed there was something to “this yoga stuff.” I acknowledged the euphoria I felt during class, the challenges the poses offered and the calmness. Soon I was attending every yoga class I could, whether locally or while traveling. So I went from a sceptic about the benefits of yoga to a “yoga junkie” and now a teacher.
I truly believe yoga is a gateway to personal change and an improvement to health, attitude and your way of life. My personal mission is to share my love of yoga with others as I advance my practice. There is a type of yoga for everyone so no matter whom you are, your age, body type or you athletic background. I invite others to join me on in my journey.
