Early Morning Yoga Class

I bought this yoga deal - 10 dollars for 10 days of unlimited classes.  And being the Scottish Cancerian that I am, I want to get my money's worth.  So this morning I woke up at 5am to make a 6am Vinyasa Flow class at Uptown Yoga.  To say that I'm not a morning person is putting it lightly.  I'm like a zombie before 8am.  So in this pre-coffee, zombie-like state, I drove downtown so that a chipper woman named Maria could stretch me up, roll me down and ring me out.  Again, I heard my inner Sarah saying, "Excuse me, where am I and what am I doing to myself?"

Fortunately, somewhere between 6:20 and 6:25am, the blood started flowing, the brain started responding and I felt my spirit engage.  And now, here it is, a quarter to 8am - I've played with my sons, had a cup of coffee, and am happily blogging away at my computer.  Wow.  Performing a sun salutation when the sun is actually rising might actually help me be more present throughout the day.  Will I go to another 6am yoga class?  Ha!  Fat chance. We'll see...

$10 unlimited classes! I'd be all over that. Classes are $14 each at my yoga studio, and one of those luxuries that I allow myself only a couple times a month. I'd be right there with you taking advantage of the early morning classes, too. Don't you love how you feel after a good class? Thanks for sharing.
