If you are wondering what Anti-Gravity Yoga is...imagine Cirque Du Soleil and then add Yoga.
At the Open House, the yoga instructors were there and we had the opportunity to try some poses.

But when I was in the hammock getting into position, I was a wee-bit scared.
Who am I kidding...I was scared to death!
I was afraid that I wasn't strong enough. And, that I was too fat to do it. And, that I would look ridiculous. And, of course, I was afraid that I would fall on my head and make a big scene! The last thing that Mary needed at her Open House was a 911 call and the drama of paramedics whisking me away on a stretcher.
So I almost didn't do it. In fact, I got off the hammock and walked away, momentarily giving up.
But, I went back. And tried again. Thankfully, Amy, my instructor was incredibly patient and encouraging. (Thanks AMY!)
And I did it!
I hung upside down like a monkey! And it felt so good - crazy, but GOOD!

For me, the best part was that I pushed through my fear!!!
How have you pushed through your fear?
ps... And, now, I can't wait to sign up for some Anti-Gravity Yoga classes! I know they are going to ROCK!
