Erica is an absolute doll and a big part of why I enjoy going to the gentle yoga class so much. She told me if I wanted to do it, that I should definitely try. I have the flexibility for it and I can build up the strength, and the instructor who is conducting the class is very gentle and easy to work with. She'll understand my limitations. Erica's of the opinion that I could more than handle the yin yang yoga at this point, too, but she supports my decision to work up to that by hopping into the beginner class first.
So I'm going to do that, starting tomorrow. I'm more than a little excited about the prospect, actually.
