A really small yoga class

When I got to the yoga studio today, I was surprised that I was the only one who’s attending the morning class. I know that normally, they cancel classes if there are fewer than three people, so I was surprised that the teacher said we’ll go ahead and work on whatever I think I need to improve on. I told her that I was interested in strengthening my thighs and opening up my hips. Five minutes in, another woman walked in, with the class now having a whopping two students.

It was my first time having quite an intimate yoga session. I ended up going a lot deeper into every pose and seeing exactly what I’m doing wrong, able to correct myself as needed. Of course, since it was easier to keep an eye on just two of us, our teacher was also quicker to help us out and correct our poses. After class, I told her it was pretty nice practicing in a class that small and she herself said it was definitely relaxing and allows her to be more hands-on–literally as well as figuratively–with each student. I also have to say that my mind felt a lot more quiet during class, too, without its usual chatter.
