[Y] is for Yoga

Y     I admit that I could not think of anything else relevant to running starting with Y. (Except maybe a why?) But as I have very recently started attending yoga classes it kind of fits. I used to do yoga few years back and they were always a nice relaxing sessions with lots of meditation and breathing. I remember leaving the studio floating above the ground, high on oxygen. But I moved so that was the end of it. The classes I attend now are completely different. They are hard. Very technical and sometime I even forget how to breathe. But I keep going back anyway. I can’t explain it. I want to achieve that light feeling after leaving the class again. I should probably find a yoga session more suitable but I like the challenge to perfect the poses.

There are endless lists of reasons why is yoga good for runners, mostly to do with posture and strength. I agree. But I think it also benefits my mind, it is calming in a different way that running is. I like that.
