I tried my first yoga class this evening, something called "Yoga for Athletes" at UNC Wellness. It was a really good class, and though I couldn't do everything to the fullest (some by a long shot!), I still got a lot out of it. I was a bit self-conscious, truth be told, but I need to remember that it's okay to be there, to try my best and get all I can out of it. Improvement takes time and practice.
Afterward, I checked my blood pressure at one of the machines (like what you see at the drugstore) nearby, and it was 101/61! Is that insane, or what?! I'll take it! :)
