"Keep an open mind!" Chris yelled as I left the house for my first Vinyasa flow class. "Because you know you're going to hate it tonight..."
But I didn't hate it. At least not entirely. It did kind of mess up my back even more though. It's the whole chaturanga to upward dog to downward dog movement. (In other words, the whole thing). My QL muscle on the left side of my lower back does not like. And I knew that going in, but Flow is popular... I have to see why.
The thing I did like about it is that it's a new discipline with a gaggle of disciples who all believe its the path to sanity, fitness, happiness...whatever. I like thinking that maybe it could be all that for me, too, if I just dedicate myself to seeing the art and beauty of it. So that's what I'm going to do for the next few months...
...if my back can take it.
