So after a couple of days of relaxing and sitting still, it was about time I did some form of exercise or movement. I have been swimming laps in the pool and doing shorter workouts in our room but I do miss going to the gym. When Jamie’s mum suggested we should go to a yoga class by the beach I could not say no!
The yoga is at a beach bar called La Siesta in Javea and you have an amazing view of the sea. The class was very mixed and the instructor, Fran, was amazing. She made you feel welcome straight away and walked around encouraging and helping everyone to do better. The class was very mixed, people of all ages and with different levels of experience. There even was a little girl there with her mum, which I thought was incredibly cute. What a nice activity to do together.
I haven’t practiced yoga since last summer when I did Bikram for a month. They had an offer 30 pounds for 30 days but after that month was over it was too expensive to continue. It was really sad as I tuly enjoyed those sweaty classes. It was amazing how quickly you progressed.
I felt a bit stiff to say the least during this class. Afterwards I decided that I really should look into going to yoga once a week just to mix it up. I think it is quite important when you lift a lot of weights to let your body stretch and recover. I would love to be more flexible!
Anyway, if you are in Javea and are interested, Fran’s classes are at La Siesta at 9.30 am everyday of the week (from what I gathered) and there are extra classes during the summer on Tuesday and Thursdays at 8 am. The classes are an hour and are 7 euros.
Jamie’s mum and I have decided that we will make time to go back for another class before Jamie and I leave. Really looking forward to it!
