1) By the end of the year, I want to be able to do down dog with my feet flat on the floor. Because my hamstrings are so tight, I currently have to stand on the balls of my feet when in the pose. I try to stretch at least once a day in a down dog-type pose to gain more flexibility. I know with a lot of patience & practice, I can achieve this.
2) Similarly, I want to be able to do a forward fold without using a block for my hands. So in yoga, if you aren't flexible enough to do a pose, you use a block and "build" the ground up to you so your hands can be grounded. The forward fold essentially stretches the same muscles as down dog, so I think in achieving goal one, I will also (hopefully!) achieve this one.
3) Not be so intimidated by headstands. Currently, if there's a class where I think they'll do headstands, I don't go. It's because I'm totally chicken and/or think I'll look like an idiot if I a) try and fail, or b) don't try
I love yoga, though. I love the atmosphere & vibe of the studio. I love the cool, hippy-ish, calm teachers. I love the help/support you get from the teacher, and the general feeling of support/niceness that comes from everyone in the class. I love the chill, groovy music they play. And the awesome moment of rest (savasana) at the end.
I think a really good schedule for me right now, considering the longer runs I've been doing, would be: 3 days running, 2 days yoga, 1 day other cardio or weights, and 1 day rest. I'm totally committed to my Thursday night yoga class, so that makes it easy enough to just choose one other class/week to attend.
