Returning to Gentle Yoga

A few weeks ago, I received an NMSS email which listed new adaptive yoga classes offered by the hospital system in Arlington County.  The two weekly classes mentioned in the email would fit my schedule perfectly and were to take place less than 3 miles from my house.  So I went online to see about registering.

What I discovered was a full range of classes including a Gentle Yoga class which looked more attractive.  It was 90 minutes, instead of 60 minutes.  I assumed that this class would also not be quite so “adaptive.”  I didn’t hesitate too long before snatching up one of the remaining four spots.  I’m glad I did because the class sold out and we had our first session yesterday morning.

I really liked my previous yoga instructor, but for some reason I was not interested in going back to his class.  The last few times I did go, I felt limited and unable to keep up although I definitely gave myself the freedom to not push myself.  I just felt not as capable as I wanted to feel.
