So I tried hatha yoga for the first time last night.
I got to class and was relieved to see that there were only 4 other women in the class, including the instructor. I was the new girl in class and they all knew each other, but they were very nice. The instructor asked me if it was my first time and said that she would carefully explain everything to me. She has been practicing yoga sine the 70's and was very easy to follow.
We started with some stretching and then she walked us through a few poses. My favorite part of the session was an energy balancing session where we visualized energy in our palms and slowly lifted our arms up to our heads then visualized drawing the energy down through our bodies and into the ground. It left my palms tingling and my feet felt heavy, like they were sunk into the floor. The whole class was very calming and I left feeling balanced and relaxed. Balance is something I've been searching for and I'm pretty sure I've been heading in the right direction.
I'm definitely looking forward to next Tuesday night's class!
Hope you all have a beautiful day!

For some reason I find laying on the floor more comfortable than the couch... here is Frankie laying on the new living room floor with me :)
