3 Stars at Flow Yoga

If the instructor had been handing out stars during Flow this morning, I would have snagged three. I held three poses that often elude me.

Crow. I practice this pose off and on. Rarely do I hold it for more than five or six seconds. I've never tried to do it in class with others watching. That may have been just what I needed. I think I nearly got an 8 count. I know I got a "Very good" from the instructor. Now I just need to figure out how to prevent my knees from hurting my triceps. 

Supported Headstand (off the wall). I tried this one in class last week, but just couldn't muster a good wall-free balance. It came today, although briefly, and I was pretty excited. 

Upward Bow. I hardly ever try this pose. My arm strength, especially at the end of class is just too questionable for me to feel comfortable pushing and lifting up. I have a fear of injuring my neck. Today, my arms were feeling fresh, so I pushed all the way up from baby bridge and TaDa! I did it.

And a new goal: to get my arms into bound. I can do it ok on my right side, but not on my left.

Before class, I did my daily morning workout:
30 Day Pilates Body
Day 15 - legs
I remember reading Teen magazine and then doing this exercise (back when I really had no thighs, lol!). Oh, teenybopper days.

I ended the night with a little Zumba. It felt good to move around and get sweaty.

What would you give yourself a star for today?
