I went to Kundalini yoga again yesterday at Dance Garden. I was snowed under with work for the Burlesqueland festival but I had to get off my couch and keep the discipline of going to class; there's always something that can get in the way of making it to class, and this was something I could drop for an hour or so. The added bonus: class is free the second Saturday of every month. The price was right, and I needed the energy that Kundalini yoga offers.
We did a different set of exercises than we did the last time I was in class. This week really worked the pelvis, hips and legs. It was so intense that my body froze up at a couple points and I couldn't move to do the exercises. My hips are so sore today. I am glad I went, but there's no way I'd be able to function in a dance class today.
In my past two classes, I realized where I have flexibility weaknesses. My hip flexors are awesome, but I don't have the flexibility in my hamstrings to get into the splits yet. I don't have much flexibility in my shoulders or back. I was diagnosed as having a 15% permanent disability in my back from a car accident I had when I was sixteen. I wonder how much of that is part of my problem. I need to find some exercises to do at home to increase my flexibility in all these areas.
