Some feedback: This is what Amanda wrote about her yoga journey :
To be honest, I have never really taken care of my body. But in December last year, I decided to change this. I tried to start swimming, but I never had the motivation, so I thought that maybe I needed to do something completely different. That is, when I started practising hot yoga. The studio was close to my apartment and the first drop-in class was not that expensive – so why not?
I went to my first class – nervous and unprepared. And it felt like I was going to die. I felt weak. I felt sweaty. I felt so inflexible. After that first class, I thought: “Well, I am not going back there”, but when I woke up the next morning, my body felt different and relaxed.
Since then, I have been sweating at hot yoga classes once or twice a week and after 5 months, I had lost 12 kilos. My body looks and feels better, but that isn’t the biggest reward. The biggest reward is that I am learning to understand my body. I can sense, when it needs to be pushed with 75 minutes of the earth series – and I can feel, when it needs to be calmed down with yin yoga. I feel like a winner, whenever I can do tree pose with my leg a little higher up my thigh. I feel like a winner, when I can do an entire class without a break. I feel like a winner just because I show up to class
