I have a love hate relationship with yoga. I love it when I’m doing it, but I hate it when I’m thinking about doing it. Something about all the heavy breathing that really rots my cabbage. Even worse I feel like I’m always behind the hairy guy who passes gas all during class. My favorite type of yoga is Bikrhim which makes the gas passes even worse.
When I was incubating the mini I had to give up my Bikrhim yoga and take prenatal yoga. It was then I realized that the Vinyasa flow yoga wasn’t really that bad. My instructor was also very touchy which I loved. I got a scalp and neck massage during the last five minutes of class every class! The less people in class the longer the massage. Needless to say if more than 4 people were in class I was kind of cheesed. Selfish I know but, geez that lady’s hands were magic! There was also no gas! You would think that a bunch of pregnant women would light the joint up but nope. We did. We are ladies:)
After the baby, it has been difficult to get back into yoga because:
I have a baby.
I have a baby.
There is no one to watch the baby.
I can’t go to far from the house because I’m nursing.
I need to lose weight before I can put on yoga pants.
Who is going to watch the baby?
I mean there are at least 17 other legitimate reasons as well, I just chose not to list them.
Then here comes Cherished Life Yoga. The owner and one of the instructors Vanya is like a zen Duracell battery on the “you can do it” train. She convinced me that not only can I do yoga but how awesome I would be at it. To make her sell even easier the studio is less than 3 miles from me.
The Cherished Life studio is in the Café of life building and offers a variety of classes. I encourage all who live in the area to go! Cherished Life has a variety of Yoga classes which you can check out here.
Vanya also does juice cleanses for those who want to kick up the heath and well being!
