I am here.

I tried my first hot yoga class today.

It was very warm and inspirational and challenging. Very challenging. So much so that it hurts to lift my arms to write this. But as I was shaking through side plank and breathing heavily through chair pose, I got angry. Really, really angry.

I am here.

I was angry that it was challenging. I was angry that I couldn’t hold myself up. I was angry that I was dripping with sweat and slipping on the mat and everything was…hard.

I am here.

I would consider myself an excitable and passionate person. While I am not the best yogi to have ever lived, I love yoga. So I’m going back to that studio. I’m going to get better and stronger and more empowered one day at a time.

Wish me luck? 🙂
