Hello everyone! How was or is your Memorial Day? Sadly, it has to come to an end (or end if it already did). Work tomorrow for a lot of us.
What did you all do for Memorial Weekend? I treated my Body and Mind to some good relaxing yoga! My first time with yoga and I am so glad I tried it! I used to be so scared of yoga due to the stretching and breathing too hard or fast or something.
Couple months ago, Body & Brain opened up near me. I visited there two or three times just to get the pricing. It’s near Subway. I used to go there to buy a sub for my Dad and me.
Anyways, Body & Brain pricing I have and still think is a bit expensive. But the atmosphere is so relaxing. As one comment I read in a review of Body & Brain, it doesn’t have the gym odor. They play some soothing, meditative music. They talk in a calm, peaceful voice.
Today’s visit I paid $20. For $20 I basically had a group and one-on-one. Some things they did were uncomfortable at first; however, in the end, I felt relaxed and light-weight after it was all done. So, the results out weighed the discomfort/uncomfortableness.
I bought their pillow to do some of the exercises using it at home. After the one-on-one session, I was amazed by how much my legs could stretch compared to when I first arrived there. I was also amazed that my right neck/shoulder area pain reduced. Left side pain was still there, but was reduced slightly.
After the group session, we were offered a nice hot tea. The lady offered me a free book, “The Solar Body: The Secret to Natural Healing”. I was so grateful for a book to read. I used to google about Chakras, natural healing, and meditating. I didn’t expect the lady to hand me a free book. No place really does that that I’ve been to.
When I went home I noticed I was more positive, more happy. I made a promise to my Dad, who passed away back in March, that I will keep doing this and I will keep myself happy. Feeling light-weight felt great. There were no heavy weights wearing me down. At least not much that I was aware of. I felt energetic. I read a few pages of the book and journaled a little.
In other words, I started feeling more hopeful. I never thought I’d feel that. I am hoping I don’t lose that feeling. I am also hoping I don’t give up on this.
Although it is quite expensive, I think it would be good for me. I’ll give it one month try. And I’ll check out the YMCA and LA Fitness ones, too. They are a lot cheaper, I’m sure. Either way, I am very glad I tried yoga and wasn’t afraid of it! This was more for beginners level since most who came today were new just like me.
Has anyone tried Body & Brain. What do you think about it? Which would you prefer- YMCA/LA Fitness or Body & Brain?
Have a good night!
