30 Day Relationship Challenge...With Myself: Day 10

Monday, November 7, 2016

So, News Flash--I'm cheap.  Like super cheap.  I don't really think you get the picture, but imagine the cheapest person you know...I'm lower than that.  I'm probably one step above Extreme Cheapskates.

Today's Challenge: Sign up for a class together, or learn something new together.

I'm also incredibly weirdly shy (sometimes).  If I'm with someone I know, I'm pretty outgoing but if I'm all by myself my mouth is clamping shut.

Which is why when I spotted an unlimited monthly membership to a yoga class down the street from where I live I jumped on it.  It was cheap and it was going to force me into a room full of strangers.  That I wouldn't be able to speak with because talking during yoga is discouraged.

Admittedly, it took me a while to pluck up the courage and I kept finding excuses to the miss the Fundamental class, which is only offered three times a week.  But finally, I put one foot in front of the other and found myself confusedly trying to operate an elevator that was only taking me one floor up.  Everyone else in the class took the stairs.  So I bought myself some time fidgeting in that elevator and ended up in line patiently waiting for the next class to end.  Which was fine with me.

What I didn't know, was that this was hot yoga.  Hot, sweaty yoga.  Everyone else laid down on their mats.  I noticed some of my classmates had a brick.  I walked over and grabbed a brick.  I realized they had towels.  I walked back across the room and grabbed two towels, the limit requested on the sign.

And then I put myself into corpse pose and waited for the class to start.

I struggled but the Yogi was nice and everyone else was full of smiles.  Everyone was really focused on what they were doing and there were so many different levels in the room that I never felt out of place or judged.  No one had time to even look at me!

After class was over, the Yogi welcomed me to the studio and I was genuinely thankful.

I got home and Charlie could not stop sniffing me.  She clearly wasn't a fan of the smell hot yoga produced on my skin.

I have until November 29th so I guess we'll see how far I get in my yoga expertise.  But, let's not hold our breath.

Day 10-- Gone!  Onwards to Day 11!

As a reminder, the inspiration for this list came from PopSugar.
