Not to brag... But the past four or five classes have totally KICKED ASANA for me!
Seriously. I may be jinxing myself here... But screw it. I am gonna brag. I have had so much energy and way more focus in the past few classes than I have in a long time. I've loved every moment of it. And, most importantly, I take none of them for granted.
Because I'm no dummy... I know that tough classes may be coming back soon.
It doesn't matter how long you have been practicing. How young you are. How fit you are. Even if you are a teacher. EVERYONE... Even those with a consistent practice... EVERYONE has bad classes.
- Classes where you fall out of every pose no matter how hard you try to hold them.
- Classes where you want to vomit every time you bend forward or backwards.
- Classes where vertigo sets in and all you can do is breathe, because you know that is the most basic thing you can accomplish at that moment.
But after some time, the "good" classes circle back into the rotation. But are these really the "good" classes? Shouldn't the "good" ones be the ones where you are getting you ass kicked?
Aren't the ones where you are having the worst acid reflux of your life the ones where your body is trying to break through a wall and detox to a new level?
"You're getting something out," as one of my studio owners told me in my last really bad class. "This is good."
Yes. It is. Let's redefine these classes as the "good" ones.
