Dah lama ditch yoga (for SpaQ2...yeah, segan nak admit the fact), I have to say that it was not easy to go back to class.
Especially when your instructor is Harry.
Not that Harry is a bad instructor. On the contrary, he is a very good instructor. But then he leaves no room for slacking, and you have to constantly push yourself throughout his class (or at least try to push yourself, either way it means MOVE YOUR BUM big time!). I use to hate his class because of his sternness but then since I am in an ultimate crunch mode now to trim up, I don't really have a choice do I? The tougher the better. Hehehehhe!
And so I hit to his class after my warm up run and it was full!
Nasib baik awal.
We started with warm up (again) and a lot of cobra pose...
*Jangan mimpi la aku nak tangkap gambar aku in all these yoga poses. Belum tiba masanya. Rasa macam dugong beryoga tepi pantai....hahahahaha...dengan my oversized hips and all. For the time being kita jamu mata with orang yang lebih fit and healthy so that boleh jadi source of inspiration.
The class goes on for an hour. And I sweat like a sweat factory...mind you I hampir boleh perah t-shirt I after the class. So memalukan, but then wth, nobody cares about it in the first place. Namapun at the gym.
My legs started shaking when we get to warrior pose, as the focus is mainly at the abs and hips and obviously my abs and hips need mucho grande amount of work. But I manage to go past that, and move on strong....
*satu hari nanti mau jadi macam Amanda ni. Its so amazing okeh. Dah la posing atas gunung-ganang. Pic courtesy of ncmountainguides.com*
Gagah kan? Siapa kata wanita tak boleh jadi gagah?
I was okay to almost the end (walaupun after 30 minutes or so my heart is screaming wildly to give up!) and I only "terkandas"at this pose...

Obviously its a bit impossible kan? So I stayed at frog pose for a while, hopefully as I practice more dilligently and gain more energy I get to push myself to lift my butt up to the sky.
Harry sangat keji. He pointed out the obvious...that most of us fail to get into the poses because of our oversized hips and spare lumps at the tigh and buttock areas.
The fact hurts like a piercing needle. Bullet through the chest.
Well, if we don't do something about it nothing would change kan? At least at the moment we can try and do our best.
*mental note : semalam jumpa a few ladies that started gym 6 months ago (huge) now looking petite and healthy...aku soka. Wth...that can be achieved in 6 months? Harusla gigih dan konsisten.
