I got a Groupon for a new yoga studio not too long ago and went yesterday for my first class there. It was an all levels Vinyasa class. And holy downward dog I am feeling it today. I'm still relatively new to yoga-I've done maybe 12 classes total with an instructor-but I feel like I did pretty well. Balance has usually been my goal intentioni for my classes, but I've set myself a new yoga goal. THIS:

This is Bird of Paradise pose. It's a binding pose which was too difficult for me to do. I have issues with my hips and with balance, so I feel like if I achieve this pose-and can hold it for a repectable amount of time-I will have accomplished something.
Wish me luck! Better yet, wish that I'll be able to get out of the pose once I get into it...
