In 2009, I decided to take up yoga. I took advantage of a summer special offered at Living Yoga and Health in downtown Guelph.
I was hooked after the first class. I decided to make it my "fitness" project for the year. I attended three to four sessions a week and managed to lose ten pounds in the process. Unfortunately, my interest fizzled out last summer and I attended classes very sporadically throughout the fall.
Tonight, I went back to Living Yoga and started anew with Amy's Yoga and Meditation class. I feel so calm and centered.
It has been said that some do yoga for fun, some for exercise, and others to help conquer personal battles. In my case, ditto for all three!
