In addition to a weekly practice I've been doing some Sun Salutations and some leg stretches at home and I've noticed a definite improvement. These small gains are quite motivating!
I recognise that I don’t need to be a bendy yogi, and, given the sports I play, I’m never going to be really flexible. My goal is to increase my range of motion.
I'm at the half way point, so it seems a good time to check in with the concerns I had before I started yoga;
My tight hamstrings
I’m noticing an improvement, but more than that, I’ve also stopped fixating on hamstrings, having learned that my type of training has shortened my posterior chain; it’s not just my hammies I need to lengthen!
Will I be the only guy?
There’s definitely a good mix of males and females, we’re a friendly group and it’s nice to have a bit of a chat before class.
Would I feel the benefit and get an endorphin release?
I definitely feel like I’ve had a nice workout after class, which is important for me. I need to have a few muscular aches!
