Doing Yoga for sports and leisure was something new and different to me, but after the first session I felt really relaxed and calm, especially at a period of time where I was stressed out about exams.
Every lesson was unique with different skill building activities, which made the session really enjoyable.
Personally, I really liked the group and paired activities, such as the paired yoga poses and when we had to figure out how to unwind our arms. I enjoyed this a lot, because it was fun and a time for us to bond as friends and peers, and this was also evident as we grew closer as a group after every session.
I found myself feeling more connected to the others, as yoga was a time for all of us to reflect about our thoughts and feelings, which was really helpful during the end of the year, when we had our exams. This was one of many reasons why I continued to do yoga in the term after that. Also, what I like was that the Yoga instructor really listen to us, in terms of what we were feeling that day, and she came up with activities that really suited our mood.
The session may have been a place to relax, but it was also a place where I could improve on my flexibility and strength, and I learnt a lot about my body. From the 2 terms, I have found a new interest in Yoga, and I can see myself doing it in the future.Theres nothing like an inspirational quote to get readers in the mood.
