I had been dabbling with yoga on the edges for many years, and then when I began this style of practice with Griffin, I became much more focused, and dedicated to furthering my knowledge and ability to connect my mind and body. Griffin is an exceptional instructor: focused, patient, knowledgable, and has a gift of coaxing proper alignment and execution of poses from individuals based on their abilities.
I enjoyed meeting Griffin and practicing what was, for me, some very rigorous yoga! Muscles I had forgotten about are still speaking to me this morning. Really, I see that much of the yoga I've been doing for the past 12 years has kind of been yoga "lite" in the sense that I have been doing modified versions of poses, staying in a limited comfort zone, and not really stretching myself to new edges. Lots to think about and practice. Thank you very much!
So I've been doing Ashtanga Vinyasa since February. At heart I am a trail runner, but have done less running since I started doing yoga. This morning I decided to run a 10 mile race and managed to take first place in my age group (40-49). I totally crushed it (especially on the downhills) on a beautiful perfect morning, passing a bunch of 20 somethings. I feel great and I'm not sore. I guess I'm saying that there is something to this yoga thing!
