I’m just back from a lunchtime yoga class.
Lately (last few weeks) I’ve started being a lot more aware of how I feel mentally, after doing yoga, as well as physically.
I feel a lot calmer, more relaxed, and very chilled.
It’s got to the stage that – in the case of a post work evening class – I no longer grab a quick drink while I’m waiting for the train home, as the alcohol would kill this really pleasant feeling that I’m experiencing. So, I take a slower, more meandering route to get to the station instead, and enjoy the sensation of calm that is washing over me.
So, double the benefits. The physical – that I’ve always been aware of – and now the mental, which I’m experiencing more vividly than before.
