30 THOUGHTS FROM 30FIFTEEN: YOGA CLASS
We're big fans of yoga for so many reasons. You're more than aware of this if you read our blog on the regular. But like any workout class, it can be really hard to "quieten the mind". In fact, our minds are racing. You may not relate to all of these thoughts, but we're certain you'll relate to at least one or two.
1. Ok, where shall I put my mat…
2. The back it is. This corner looks like I won’t be noticed if I just fall asleep.
3. Ugh work is nuts this week…
4. No more work thoughts right now - we are at yoga! Ok, chilling out starts now. I am calm. I am calm. I am calm.
5. Please don’t lay your mat that close to me. Really? Dude... come on shuffle it over… yep a little more, yep just like that… thank you!!
6. Ok back to being calm - breathe… just focus on your breath.
7. Wait am I still breathing… ok, now I’ve forgotten how to breathe! I don’t know how to breathe!!!! Help!
8. Phew – teachers here – she’ll remind me how to breathe… We aren’t starting laying on our backs?
9. I wonder if that guy is single.
10. You are not here to pick up guys! Breathe! Focus!
11. Ok… ommmmmmmmmm.
12. Can we just start to flow? This music makes me want to move!
13. Did she just ask me to find my crescent?
14. How do you know if you have a crescent?
15. Are all yoga teachers good in bed?
16. I wonder if this pose will help me widen my vocabulary- I swear too much
17. Wait are yoga teachers mind readers?
18. Crap I hope not, but this sequence is making me feel like they might be…
19. I hope no one can tell I’ve worn this shirt to 2 classes without washing it, it doesn’t smell. No no-one can tell.
20. I should buy another one of these tops- it’s so great for yoga. I feel so yogi–like in it.
21. I wonder if should get some mala beads? Too much?
22. Woah... I haven’t checked Instagram in an hour. Is that weird?
23. My boss is probably calling me.
24. No more work-related thoughts, just yoga. Peace is within me. I am light...
25. I don’t think ancient yogis did happy baby... It should be renamed happy boyfriend – seriously!!!
26. I should do a 7-day yoga challenge. Oh, but then I’d miss Thirsty Thursdays…
27. Do I have food at home for dinner?
28. I wonder if that guy knows I’m staring at his ass - it’s not intentional - I’m ‘focusing on the point in front of me' …it’s a pretty nice point though - you can tell he does yoga a lot.
29. Wait it’s time for savasana already? Amazing – I hope we lay here forever.
30. Yoga is so amazing!!
