Gym Torture!

I consider myself to be a pretty fit guy. I go to the gym most days and i love playing sport. Well, i today i happened on the brilliant idea that i needed improve my balance, flexibility and posture (as well as my strength and fitness) as i thought it would help prevent me getting injuries play football or as the americans call it 'soccer'. With this in mind i joined up to join a yoga class. Well actually it was Hatha yoga a joined the class that accepted all levels (1-3). I chuckled to myself when we clensed our spirits and chanted ohmmm...nice and easy. I wasnt prepared for what happened next. Repeatedly Contorting my body in a position that well only a contortionist and every other member of the class could manage. The instructor (who shall now only be referred to as 'yoga nazi') was very helpful and when other my infleixible body found itself in a comfortable position to relax, yoga nazi would come over and make sure i did the exercise properly thus driving the air from my lungs and putting me in a position never knew was possible. I was a yoga reprobate, beyound crap. I think my ability level was actually -3, well below the required 1. Incidently, i should just point out that from my first perspective there seemed to be something quite sexual, in a sado-masochistic kind of way, vibe from doing this kind of training. The slim, blonde, unbelieveably flexible instructor could have just as well been a Dominatrix spanking my bottom with me on all fours begging for more. "please ma'am, may i have another"......whack!
Well i managed to fight my way to the end of the class and i as i set about putting my dislocated joints back in place i got chatting to one of the girls from the class. Apparantly my look of pain and anguish on my face put her off and almost made her laugh out loud. We had a little chat and i explained it was my first time and what i was aiming to achieve. She had been doing the yog thingy for 2 and half years and her advice was to persevere and come back again next time the class was on. Well Dear Diary, she was cute and the little fella took control and promised i would indeed be there the next time.
I look forward to telling u all about my pilates experiences tomorrow....if im still in one piece.

I could feel my own joints stretching in pain as I read about your yoga experience. It is always a good thing to try new stuff. That is how we increase our knowledge. With your new hobby you will be expanding both body and mind. (Not to mention flirting with your new classmates).
