After resting my sore shoulder/back from too many resistive exercises, I got back in a Yoga class on Sunday. If I had to measure a successful class based on how I felt before & after, then this class was an A+. Muscle where tight & sore before hand and after a few poses (like the one above) then I felt great. Ok, I have never quite mastered that pose, but nevertheless it was a great class. I'm so proud of all of us who had to sit out of some of our normal exercises last week due to sore muscles. Just think sore muscles continue to burn calories just to repair themselves! Also, if you were taking a break to let your body heal that is so much better than just not being motivated to exercise.
