New Experiences

I’m not so great with them.  I like structure, I like having an idea of what to expect.  I like feeling oriented – as in knowing where I’m going when I’m driving Scarlett.  So the past 20 days have been pretty stressful for this chick!  I wish I was more naturally adventurous.  BUT, I am who I am.  Yesterday’s new experience was going to a new yoga studio. I don’t really enjoy checking out new places. Once I find one I love…. Well then I don’t want to go anywhere else, even if I know it would be good for a balanced practice.  New places can be so distracting 🙂  I’ve been researching where to try first – and I picked Exhale.  It is close to my house and the instructors biographies interested me.

I took a noon Yin class led by Jay.  I felt very welcome immediately upon meeting him and given the general lobby vibe.  In terms of amenities, I’ve been most spoiled with the changing rooms/showers at The Ashram.  Exhale just has two bathrooms.  The other thing is that the floor in the studio is carpet.  I’m just not so sure about carpet in a studio…..  It did seem very clean and I took a Yin class. But I’m just not sure how I’ll feel about carpet in the Hot Yoga classes.  We shall see though – I brought a Groupon for the next 30 days.  So I am going to take advantage of that coupon to the fullest.  Overall my impression was a very good one.  I liked Jay a lot.  He was laid back, gave good directional commands, not overly chatty, safe sequence.  I will definitely go back to his class.  He’s teaching today at 5:30 but I think I’ll try Rebecca’s class at 9:30. When I have the option I much prefer to practice in the morning. 🙂
