I went to my first yoga class at 8 Limbs on Saturday. What a workout! I'm still sore today, especially around my inner thighs. The focus of the class was "opening the groin". Supposedly, Americans have really tense groins since we're always sitting at desks, crossing our legs and since we don't squat regularly, like people do in other countries. Every time the instructor said the word "groin" I giggled a little. I'm mature.
Turns out my groin region is very tense, along with every other part of my body. My toes, however, are very loose and relaxed. We did a squatting pose where we put most of our weight on just the toes, and I didn't feel a thing. It's a good sign of healthy, relaxed toes! Must be from years of picking up random stuff with my toes, like remote controls and food that's fallen on the floor.
I'm excited for my next class!
