Day 2: Improvement!
Today was much better for me & my practice. I was able to complete the entire standing series. My nemeses has always been Ustrasana – Camel Pose. So by the time we reached this posture I was a bit fearful and felt a little dizzy (not to mention EXHAUSTED) so I remained in Savasana.
It turns out that I didn't need to tell her that I was new as she was in last night's class practicing. She remembered us. I was embarrassed that she witnessed my first day struggle but encouraged when she told my sister & I that we had shown improvement as compared to the prior night.
I was definitely better prepared for class on Day 2. I kept myself properly hydrated during the day. I stopped eating by 2:30. I was determined to do better this time. Every practice is different as each day is different. I was glad to hear this bit of truth from Eeva and will keep that in mind each time I enter the yoga studio.
