Opinion Piece: 30 Days with Adrienne
I wanted to do a month of yoga and it was suggested to do Yoga with Adrienne … and so I did going to youtube and finding 30 Days With Adrienne.
I knew I was in trouble on Day 1 when Adrienne asked me to sit up straight with my legs crossed … I couldn’t do it; but, I continued on with what I could do.
Adrienne is a young woman that has that homely feel/look about her – she’s just a pleasant person to start your day with. She’s a little quirky and goofy making her easily liked through the electrons of the computer world. It was made very clear to me that she knows yoga, all the terminology, and all the different types of moves … but, she didn’t know me and my limitations
The 30 days of yoga were planned out well with progression in mind throughout the challenge. Going from one position to the next was much faster than what I thought yoga was about only to later learn that there are different types of yoga – quick position changes are harder for this beginner as I was expecting to hold my position for longer periods of time. I felt I was often trying to catch up to Adrienne. I’m sure if my yoga was put onto youtube, it would be quite the comedy show … but Adrienne never laughed at me (only at herself).
I don’t believe yoga is a great weight-loss activity … and it is certainly a big challenge for those that are overweight and not flexible. But, after doing my yoga, I often felt more loose and energized to take on the day.
All said and done: I would highly recommend 30 Days with Adrienne for anyone who might like to give yoga a try. If you do, tell Adrienne I said “hey” and then get ready to do the Downward Dog. Namaste.
