Week Two Adventure – Yoga

After months of slacking off, yoga is back on my schedule. I know that it’s supposed to be relaxing but seriously, the more I think about something the more anxious I get. The instsructor kept repeating “focus on your breath”. Well, when I focus on my breath my breathing suddenly becomes very forced and I feel like I’m hyperventilating. What’s so relaxing about that? And then I become very self-conscious because when my breathing becomes labored then it also seems to sound very loud. So I focus on my breathing even more…… It’s a viscous cycle. But, I’m going to keep at it. Maybe by the end of my 52 Adventures this year I’ll actually start to enjoy yoga (probably not).
