Today I took a yoga class at Heavenly overlooking Lake Tahoe at an elevation of 9,123 ft.
I decided to take this class because it sounded like an incredible experience but also a something that would really challenge me. I recently have committed to practicing yoga regularly. I’ve decided to to do this because not only is yoga something that conditions the mind and body, but it is also something that I’m not great at. I’m committed to being decent at yoga. I probably will never be the person who can do a handstand or some of the challenging poses, but I want to take it seriously because its one of the only sports that helps me focus on being in the moment. Being completely in the moment is something I have only felt myself doing when I’m doing something challenging and that takes focus. Yoga pushes me to my physical limits and in doing so causes me to focus on nothing else but the class I am in. In class I don’t feel anxious. I don’t think about my to-do list. I just think about how much longer I can hold in downward dog. Yoga is helping me build a strong foundation.
