Sure, the class starts innocently enough-with stretching. But after that stretching....OH MY! I haven't sweat that much in a long time.
Princess and I had so much fun! Sure, some of the moves were somewhat impossible for an almost 50 year old not-at-my-goal weight woman, but hey I improvised! We giggled and outright laughed at some of our attempts at hip rolling. Hey, I gotta lotta hip to move!
I'm sure I'll be sore tomorrow, but I can't wait for the next class!
FITNESS NOTE: I am sort of trading miles for minutes right now when it comes to my fitness routine. I could feel myself getting bored with the same old, same old fitness walk routine. So Princess and I are sort of changing things up when it comes to exercise. We have more time in the summer to do more fitness-type classes together, so why not try something different? We are going to try more dance-type fitness and other cardio 'things.' Princess actually wants to give kick boxing a try. I say why not!!!!
"Everything you do, all your work, can contribute towards your salvation. It depends on you, on the way you do it. History is replete with monks who became great saints while working in the kitchen or washing sheets. The way of salvation consists in working without passion, in prayer…. May God give you the strength to keep your spirit, your mind, and your heart in the spirit of Christ. Then everything that happens to you can very quickly be radically transformed. What was tiresome and discouraging will disappear, transfigured by your desire to be there where Christ your God is." Elder Sophrony
