For the past few months, I have been going to Courtney’s 1:00 PM Sunday Yoga Sculpt class. I was first attracted to this class because it is a great time for me and my family. My daughter usually naps around 2:00 PM, so I am not really missing too much time with her. AND my husband has to put her down for a nap, and read her the 20,000 books she requests. Now, I come back every week because Courtney is amazing! The flow and speed of her class keeps me on my toes, and challenges me week after week. I am finally getting down the yoga lingo too!Continue reading “Gettin’ Our Yoga Sculpt On!”
A little over a week ago we went back to Urban Fit to take their Yoga Sculpt class again (see original post here) . That morning started out super rough for one of us (woke up too late, a tad hungover and could still taste the Cabernet from the night before, forgot their yoga mat and had to turn around to get it), but it turned around once class began.
At the start of class, Karen demonstrated the proper way to do a chaturanga (see YouTube clip here ). She was very thorough in her demonstration because she didn’t want anyone to hurt themselves. This is so important because not everyone is experienced, and not everyone would feel comfortable asking. Now, we were ready to give it a shot. Ahhh, now we remember why we liked this class so much. We could feel the heat from the lamps above us, and it felt so good to sweat out all of our weekend toxins. The sweating started, and it felt so good. The last time we took Karen’s class, we used free weights, but this time we used a band and our own body weight. We know from previous classes that the bands and no weights are sometimes so much harder!
Class ended just how we remembered. We were each given a frozen, lavender towel, and had a few minutes to reflect on our practice and to gear ourselves up for the rest of the day. This mini facial, and break from reality was just what we needed. As working moms, we appreciate the little things in life. Having a few quiet minutes to ourselves is everything. No screaming kids, no clingy toddlers, just peace and quiet.
Thank you so much for having us! We would come back and take Karen’s class week after week, that’s how much we love it. She is simply amazing in her practice, and you can see how passionate she is. If you haven’t checked out her class yet, add it to your calendar! We’ll come with you!
