Yoga and Living the Life of a BADASS

I finally went to a yoga class this afternoon. Although I’m not a big yoga person, I have enjoyed going to yoga in the past. However, it has been a long time since I’ve gone; I am intimidated by the usually more experienced participants that populate yoga classes. So, instead of plowing through and not caring what others thought, I chose the easy way by sitting out.

But this is my year of being a BADASS and there’s no turning back.

I had to go.

I had to conquer my fears.

I had to stop caring what others would think of me long enough to focus on myself.

And, right now, I feel pretty proud to have gone to a yoga class that, while not rigorous (that’s my pre-badass self speaking – hard to shut her down completely, yet), certainly allowed stretching, moments of mindfulness, breathing and meditation.

I really needed that.

Can’t wait for next week’s class!

    Congratulations and taking that first step to BADASS-ness. I truly understand and about the need to do what you want and need, I could use a dose of BADASS myself.

  2. A comedian once said they looked for a beginners yoga class, finding that everyone did yoga so those classes don’t exist anymore! 😀 While I’m quite content doing yoga at home, kudos to you for getting out of your comfort zone, enjoying class, and being excited for next week! I could use a little badassness in my life! 🙂

    Thanks for the slice!
