Have a tough time keep my brain quiet today. I would say half my brain was racing due to work. Although resolution did come so there was en eventual relief in that.

Teacher: Amy Ka
Notes: Jess and I attended the class together. It was her first C2 class at Corepower. After the long run this morning, it felt incredibly good to sweat it out in a hot room for an hour.
The room was dark and there were candles lighting up the room. It was a pretty rad atmosphere. It was a 730p class and the last class of the day.
I thoroughly enjoyed Amy’s class and the sequence of postures she put us through. They were so hard, but also felt really good. I enjoy the one breath to one movement, but i also really enjoy holding poses for several breath cycles too. Wow, it was awesome.
I dont really know what to even talk about. There were so many new things for me in this class. Several poses that were completely new to me. The reverse twisted warrior, Parivrtta Viparita Virabhadrasana, was so hard and did a number on my inner quads but damn at the same time it was awesome. I’d hold that all day over the twister prayer.
I enjoyed hearing Amys ebb and flow throughout class. There was no music tonight, but there was a girl playing instruments in the back. Not sure if I felt it or not. Ill have to give it some more thought.
Amy did say something that really stuck in my head though, and that is she had said, “Press into your edge and then hold it there. Longer than you normally would, just hold it at the furthest most edge of yours.” This whole idea of being okay with discomfort and breathing through it. That is mental toughness and I need some more of that shit. Especially if I am going to try and murder this marathon again :)
Amy, thank you for an awesome class as always. Infinite Love & Gratitude!
