So as part of my Vision Board goals for March and efforts to make exercise less about punishing my body and more about connecting with my body I've decided to try take up yoga.
I've heard only brilliant things about the benefits of yoga for both body and mind and it seems to help a lot of people I know personally.
I did a quick Google search for a yoga studio in Dublin near enough to where I study at university and came across YogaHub right near Grafton Street. What really drew me to this place was the fact that they described themselves as friendly and welcoming and when I went there today they really were.
I tried out the beginners 'Flow' class with Katie as the instructor and it was great. Because I come from a history of dancing I really liked the fluidity of the movements however weight training has really tightened up my hips!
A big thing for me was that I felt comfortable and the class was really non-judgemental and Katie even took note of the newbies and asked us our names.
They also have a cute cafe called HappyFood which is vegan and filled with delicious meals and treats. I'm definitely going to have to head back and drag my boyfriend to get some yummy brunch.
Over all I had a great experience and I think I'll be trying to get yoga into my week more often.
