Today, I branched out and tried something new! I wanted to incorporate a different workout into my weekly routine and with the help of a very good friend of mine, I found the perfect fit! We decided to “hang out”! By that I mean literally hang out by doing Hanging Yoga!
Coming from the least flexible human being in the world (I seriously have a tough time touching my toes) this yoga class was incredible. Not only did it challenge my strength and balance, it helped me with my flexibility and I honestly feel fantastic from head to toe!
The class definitely had some good hearted laughs at my expense due to my extreme inflexibility and the fact that I was totally out of my element. That said, I was made to feel very welcome and comfortable by everyone there! And hey, who can’t use a good laugh from time to time! One of the most important of life’s lessons is to not be so serious all the time. It’s definitely ok to laugh at yourself! As a matter of fact, it’s healthy!
All the years of playing soccer has taken a toll on my body. My ankles, knees, hips, neck, back, shoulders…and just about every other joint in my body is tight and sore all the time. I am constantly stretching and/or rolling out both pre and post workout but nothing, to date, has made me feel as good as this hanging yoga class did!
I swear to you, after just one class I actually feel better! My hips were stretched out, my back, neck and spine were elongated, my hamstrings and calves feel better than they have in years and… by the end of the class, I WAS ABLE TO TOUCH MY TOES! 🙂
I rate my overall experience as a 10 out of 10 and definitely recommend Hanging Yoga!
I will definitely be back for more!
Go “HANG OUT” everyone 😉
