Today I am going to an Aqua Yoga class.
I have been thinking about going to this class for weeks-maybe months. I have been practicing yoga for years, so it’s not the yoga part that has been an obstacle for me.
It’s the aqua part.
- I took childhood swimming lessons, but they didn’t fully take to me. I know how to swim, but am not very good at it. How much swimming might be involved was high on my list of reasons for putting off going.
- Also, I wear glasses. Glasses+pool=no confidence in the pool.
- And another thing: I am not a good small talker. I don’t know a soul in this class. Since I have also put off checking out the Toastmasters, this is yet another obstacle to me going to this class.
- Finally, Hello, extra 5 pounds? Meet last year’s bathing suit. Not pretty.
Today, I decided to feel the fear and do it anyway.
I’ll let you know how it turned out.
