Yoga is one of them things I keep promising myself I will do. I did it a few times a quite a few years ago and to be honest spent a lot of time trying to hold in nervous laughing with my mum as all the old people around me were breaking wind and I didn't know how to react.

So fast forward 5 or so years and an invite to Yoga Hero and here I was again trying out a Yoga Class.

Yoga Hero is situated in Leeds Docks and has a big light open space with minimal decor. All you need for a Fitness class.

The Instructor Holly explained the History of Yoga and went into detail about the origins which I had no knowledge about before. Yoga is a way of life and teaching us to better ourself and helping to remain calm. It was really interesting to hear about as a lot of the time fitness is about quick fixes to get ourselves looking better not the full pictures of feeling better and making our bodies healthier for our whole life.

We then went through a routine and Holly showed us different exercises and relaxation techniques. Some where quite difficult to get into and each time became easier, you could tell the muscles where stretching.

The next day my shoulders were aching and I couldn't believe it as I really didn't feel like I had done any strenuous exercise. I have to say I really enjoyed it and didn't hear anyone break wind!! Thanks Independent Leeds for inviting me.

Yoga is definitely something I will pick up in the future. It helped relax my mind and also strengthened muscles I didn't know I had.

Have you done yoga before??

  2. I've never actually taken a class but I've done alot of YouTube home yoga and I always feel calmer and more grounded after a session, it really helps me get my head around things that are bothering me and to calm down if I've had a crappy day. I wish I could get into a daily habit to really benefit from it but it's so much easier to procrastinate! That Yoga space looks lovely, so soothing and calm!

  4. I need something like this! I tried it earlier this year for a little while but it was just at home so gave up after a while. It did seem to do something for me, but i'm lucky if I continue with anything for more than a few weeks so classes are the way to go with me. It's just making myself go to said classes that is the problem! x
