I have bruises.
There was the peaceful quiet of the room, the very soothing voice of the instructor as well as the soothingly soft music and then there was the constant thud and inevitable giggle of me attempting EVERYTHING. I'm positive everyone wishes I had not been there.
The last time I made this much of an ass of myself was several years ago and my first time ever on a ski hill. We were at Le Massif in Quebec and I was surrounded by my then boyfriend (now husband, he married me anyway) his sister and brother law..all black diamond skiers. My husband is a skier, my sis-in-law and her husband are snowboarders. I announce to everyone my first time on a ski hill would be on a snow board...because what the hell, right? If I'm going to get battered up and make a fool of myself it might as well be while attempting to do something cool. Luckily all my ass-making was NOT in front of my husband and his family but in front of a French speaking instructor who I managed to make laugh along with me almost the entire lesson with my antics (think going backwards down the hill and not being able to stop). Oh and to top off the experience the hill was total ice that day. So every fall was like landing on a friggin rock!
At any rate. I made it through tonight's Power Yoga class quite well and I had a good workout and heehee...I go again in two days!! Poor Steve, the instructor, will likely cringe when he sees me happily bounce into the room.
