56 Thoughts I Had During My First (Candlelight) Yoga Class
Andy Yoga

For a couple years, yoga has been on my bucket list. More like crossed off because I attended the first class last Wednesday. It was something I've been wanting to do, so actually setting the time and committing to it was a phenomenal experience. I must say, my first Candlelight Yoga encounter was pretty funny and a bit challenging because I joined three weeks or so late, so some techniques I was like "Wait! What? How do you do that?" But, overall I'm glad I joined and had a soothing time while stretching and practicing some breathing techniques. It was much needed, and I look forward to continuing.

Here are some thoughts I had throughout my session:

1. Thank God I got a pedicure before coming here.

2. I never realized how nice this color was.

3. Great, this yoga mat smells.

4. And I have to lay on it.

5.This block does not feel good on my back.

6. This position hurts. I should probably not try that again, or ever.

7. Ok, that is much better!

8. I think… I’m falling asle….

9. That was a nice little nap.

10. Ugh, my face came close contact to the mat again. Gross.

11. She is talking about her experience with "boys" because they don't "deserve to be called men" YASSS girl!!! I feel you!

12. Guys suck!!! Example A on why I'm still single (and not complaining).

13. This session just got real!

14. Preaching and yoga? I love this class already!

15. Stay balanced and do not fall flat on your face and break your nose, please

16. Ok, show off! I can do that too!

17. Ha. I lied.

18. I can't hold this plank anymore.

19. Elbow, Elbow, Hand, Hand. This reminds me of track.

20. Aww, I miss track *sad face emoji*.

21. Oh hell no I can’t do that wth was I thinking.

22. I am getting super hot in here.

23. Of course, I am the only one wearing a long sleeve too. I am so dumb.

24. This song is lit right now!

25. I should stretch more often. Coach Stafford would be disappointed right now.

26. These planks are killing me! I don’t know how I ever did this during track???

27. Yeah, I am not feeling this song right now.

28. Back to the planks… Oh Lord, please help me!

29. Next time, I am bringing my own mat.

30. These words of wisdom are much needed! Preach it, girl!

31. I am starting to feel more flexible now.

32. My back isn’t hurting as much.

33. I lied, yes it does.

34. It's all in the mind, Virginia.

35. The instructor is really nice, who would ever break her heart.

36. *starts thinking about all the people who broke my heart*

37. Ok, focus!

38. Everyone is so focused, and I'm hungry.

39. How do I do that position?

40. I think I just overstretched my hamstrings...

41. The cobra! *reminisces on the cross country stretches*

42. *looks up to see someone else because I have no idea what I am doing*

43. I just made a friend!

44. Yoga is fun!

45. But, I need a class that is before beginners because these stretches killed me today.

46. But yoga was fun and the candles were lit (pun intended).

47. Is a yoga’s high a thing? Because I am definitely feeling tooo relaxed right now.

48. I think that means I did yoga right!

49. I am coming back next Wednesday and every week after that!

50. I feel so peaceful and high off of life (literally)

51. Laying down right now and I think I am going to fall asleep again.

52. I really just took a 30-second nap in the middle of this stretch, even my leg fell asleep.

53. It’s almost been an hour and I haven’t thought about stress.

54. Yoga really does work!

55. Not bad for my first class.

56. I don’t wanna leave yet! I’m too comfy.

57. I'm hungry, again.

Epic Activewear Deals Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Know About From Nordstrom's Biggest Sale

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.
