A late rise and a relaxing yoga class is what started up my day today. It was the first official class I’ve ever taken of yoga. Due to my background in gymnastics I thought it would be a fun and relatively easy experience. However as the class went on, I realized my enjoyment of the class was not just based on the idea of it being “easy”. Our Professor started with the usual introductions and course outline. Surprisingly she then lit incense, dimmed the lights and began to teach.The emphasis on breathing allowed my mind to focus on myself and nothing else. I didn’t worry during the class and my mind did not wander. I thought only about the very act of breathing and movement of my body. After the class I felt an almost clarity, a readiness. I plan on continuing the breathing exercises in the mornings in order to keep some stress of out my day. After the much needed tranquility, I walked out into the heat and chaos of New York City, to find a DJ on campus spinning some awesome music. This was accompanying the club fair held in the breezeway and some people were getting down. Music is a must with almost every event here at FIT and I absolutely love it! Browsing the clubs and seeing what they had to offer was fun, but I eventually got hungry so myself and some of my friends headed into the buzzing dinning hall. The International station was open, so today I ate teriyaki chicken, bok choy and sautéed vegetables. Now in my dorm i'm quickly sorting out all of this new info i've been given before I head over to the library and then off to another class later. I'm enjoying every second here.
