A Prenatal Yoga experience...

Monday this week I left work a little earlier to attend my first prenatal yoga lesson.. A great warm, sunny day and I was double pleased with myself,  not only did I manage to find the way without any problems but also being in time...  Pragues all metro lines, trams, buses, where to go and which exit to take is still a bit of  a jungle for me, but hey I am definitely getting better and better...
The yoga experience started with a cup of green tea and a chat about that it is a difference between stretching your body and feeling pain even if it is a fine line between them.. I should have got a little worried here, but I thought if I have managed to ride all sorts of wild horses, been doing boxercise (regularly every third year at Friskis and Svettis..) and with a lot of willpower even trained capoeira (OK only for a few times but even so... It counts..) Yoga will or at least should be nice and relaxing way of doing exercise.
I do admit I felt very relaxed and a bit spacey after 90 minutes of doing a lot of different more or less possible and impossible movements and positions. It might have been from the exhaustion of all the coordination and thinking of everything that has to be done at the same time as I am breathing, relaxing, smiling and not falling over...
But don't you think that I am giving up, oh no I am definitely continuing.. As the teacher said it is all about positive thinking and I am being positive and thinking that this is good for me and little member.. I am also sure that it is good to enjoy a chat, hot chocolate and toast afterwards, so I will continue with that also...
