Yoga for Scoliosis: Day 26

core power yoga review

My third day in a row at Core Power was a struggle to get to, but I’m so glad I went. I went to another C1 level class, this time taught by another instructor, and it was another great experience. The vibe was totally different today – a Monday at 5:30, I’m sure I wasn’t the only person there after work. When I walked into the studio, the lights were up a little bit higher than the other two times and the music was way less meditative, and a little bit more sexy R&B-y. That was the only part that threw me off a bit – it was hard to focus and center myself in the 10 minutes before class when music with lyrics was playing, but it wasn’t a big deal at all.

 

30 Day Yoga Challenge: Day Twenty-Six

I texted my friend that I’m going to be pretty bummed out when my free week is over, I’m having that much fun going. I like practicing in a group setting more than I thought I would — inspiring to hear everyone breathing in unison, focusing on themselves, and inspiring to see people at all levels of their practice, too. Not that I’m peaking, but in moments when everyone is facing the mirror, it’s easy to notice how different bodies hold different poses. Arms are longer, backs don’t twist as much, torsos are shorter, legs can kick higher naturally — there isn’t one right way for a body to look.

There are no C1 classes tomorrow, but there is a C1.5… do I dare?!

 

Other Notes:

  • I’m liking an 85 degree room more than I thought I would.
  • During the free pose section, she only lead us through crow and not flying frog! Dangit!
  • Tree felt great this time around, but there was a man in front of me who seemed to really have his heart set on putting his foot all the way up on his inner thigh and was struggling keeping balance. Not a big deal at all, but he was waving his arms around A LOT and was directly in front of me. Made the challenge all that much harder when he kept blocking my drishti!

 

Namaste and see you tomorrow!
