I’ve finally found a yoga studio I love and I’m basically having private classes at the moment because it’s new and word hasn’t spread yet.
The teacher, Yulia, has been pushing me. I’ve been shaking 10 minutes into the class and falling asleep within an hour of getting home. I feel relaxed and elated all at the same time post class and I didn’t realise how much I’d missed that feeling.
It’s not the same at home.
This week she had me doing full wheel pose. At the end of the class. When my arms were already jelly. She said wheel is a bit like pancakes. The first one is always a bit crap. So you have to try again. And that I did. These are my second and third attempts.
Why do you always feel like you’re a lot more bendy than you actually look?
Yulia told me to keep my heels lifted to create more space.
I need to work on keeping my elbows parallel because at the moment they’re pretty wild and I need to sort out my shoulders and engage my shoulder blades because God only knows what they’re doing at the moment.
And Ruby likes to get involved so here’s some additional adorableness…
