This morning I got the best workout of my life! I took the class Bodyflow at the YMCA. It has a little bit of Yoga, Thi Chi and Pilates all rolled into one.
I've been wanting to take this class for quite awhile (I bought my mat over 3 months ago). My thought was that this would be a great class for me to work on my balance and tone my muscles at the same time. Before the class began, I spoke with the instructor to let her know that I have balance issues and to not be concerned if I didn't attempt all of the poses. I am happy to say that I participated in it all (with some adaptions).
By the end of class my legs were quivering and I'm now wondering if I'll be able to move tomorrow. :) But, hey, I did it! And I look forward to continuing on with this class and watching my balance improve over time.
Thanks to my friends. Leann and Laura for joining me!!!
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
