First Class

I have never blogged before, but I guess now is as good a time as ever. I have done yoga a couple of times before and really liked the way I felt afterwards. I volunteered at a psych ward this summer and yoga was a therapeutic class that was offered to the patients. It really did seem to help them better regulate their emotions and thoughts. I guess I chose to take this class for several reasons. I need this class to graduate this Decemeber, it had greater appeal to me than the other, and I'm interested in learning more about how yoga can improve my life. I hope I will be able to regulate stress better and ultimatley become a more balanced individual


  1. I find it interesting that yoga is practice in a pysch ward but then again I am not surprised because with every problem in life now I suggest yoga to solve it. Oh you are stressed out do yoga. Oh your limbs are hurting do yoga. Oh your puppy died and you don't know how to deal with the grief...have you tried yoga. I don't know if it is a sad thing or a good thing but yoga has become the answer to every problem in life. Back to your actual blog....I think you made the right choice and I believe it helps a lot if you take it seriously.

  2. Sorry it took me so long to reply. I think I made the right choice as well. Yoga has truly permeated American society, I think for the better.
