Yoga - First lesson

As most of you knew i started my first yoga lesson last Sunday... It was great and i was having fun... I didn't knew that i gonna sweat that much.. And I was surprised after all those stretching i didn't suffer from any muscle ache. Usually i will have muscle ache after workout. Although this is not an intensive workouts...but i was expecting to suffer the next day...but...haha..Thank god!

So our Jepunlauee requested that i will post bout my Yoga Class as she was interested and curious. Ok, let start with the fees. I paid RM 30 for the enrollment fee and i had to buy my own yoga mat.This is my yoga mat price at RM 59.90. Actually i wanted to buy a cheaper one at Tesco but it was out of stock! So laku! So many ppl learn yoga! Actually i found a cheaper one at Studio R but the quality not so good lo...

The monthly fees are RM 50. Its an hour class on every Sunday. And was conducted in a small group ..less than 10 ppls... And only ladies.....

Yoga is mainly looked upon as a set of techniques useful for achieving fitness in daily life and prevention and cure of sime specific diseases or disorders. I am not sure which type of yoga i am learning now but i assume its Hatha Yoga. There are different variety of Yoga..e.g Power Yoga, Bikram Yoga etc.... You can read more here the purpose and benefits of Yoga....

My first lesson which i sweat a lot. I can't remember when was the last time i sweat this much. I was taught the basic postures and did a few postures for circulatory systems and release tensions.The good thing about Yoga is you can sweat by not feeling exhausted. Unlike workouts in gym , aerobics or kickboxing etc......

These are some of the postures i learn in my first lesson... We did partner yoga for the shoulder stand with our partners supporting our legs.

This are the information that i can provide for now..... will elaborate more in future when i attend few more classes. And of course will share some more postures with you guys so you can try it at home... Till then! Adios!
