Today, Kaitlin and I decided to take a “Yoga for Athletes” class in Coolidge Corner (by Boston College)! One of the members of the Harvard Triathlon Team also attended the class.
It was a two hour class, and it was quite challenging — since I’m not the most flexible/balanced person I had a bit of trouble with it at first! However, I really felt relaxed and refreshed after the class.
We worked a lot on flexibility today — and everything from the traditional downward dog to some more challenging exercises later on! Although it was a bit out of my comfort zone, I would definitely try it again.
