“Concentrate on your feet, feel them melting…..and dissolving…..” A smirk crept onto my face, oh dear.
“Concentrate on your calves, feel them melting….and dissolving….” The smirk reappeared and I forced it back down again.
This week we held our first yoga class at CT HQ in Chelsea, something that’s new to both me and the store. I was only partially telling the truth when Charlotte asked if I wanted to do it, but when she had to go home with a migraine my hand was forced.
So here I found myself at the end of my first yoga class, totally relaxed, stretched in places I didn’t know could stretch, and very happy with my first yoga experience. The class was a great mix of stretches, postures and relaxation, perfect for the end of the day and ideal for a group of mixed abilities, myself coming in at the very bottom end.
However, having successfully survived the dipping dog and the cat pose my guard dropped as we entered ‘final relaxation’. Creeping up on me at my most vulnerable, the giggles pounced. Thankfully I held them to a grizzled smirk and a potentially traumatic end to a successful evening was averted.
All in all, I would recommend it to any of the uninitiated, a great way to unwind at the end of the day, and give you a work out at the same time.
Classes are held at CT every Wednesday 6.30 – 7.30pm and cost £8.
Spaces are limited so email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a space.
