Yoga in Florence


First Bucket list challenge ticked. Prepared with money and sweaty betty outfit on, I (Rosie) left Lylie to attend my first yoga sesh. I arrived at the most beautiful building feeling positive and excited about the class. Two minutes in it became clear this was probably going to be the most torturous hour and a half of my life. I had arrived thinking I was attending the English beginners class. I couldn’t have been more wrong ‘rocket 2’ was the name of the class and it sure lived up to its name. SUPER hot and SUPER quick…and all in Italian. (turns out it was for the semi-professional kind) Couldn’t even prove to the Italian stallions around me (in their suction tight shorts and bizarre tattoos) that I had actually done yoga before because every time I attempted to stun them with my immaculate down dog pose my hands slipped to the end of my mat and I fell flat on my face. In the end the teacher, so fed up with my slipping and sliding lent me her porous, sweat proof, ultra pro mat so at least I could do one pose properly in every 50. It was, well, an experience…the men and women were doing poses I didn’t even know were physically possible the right way up let alone upside down. I will make sure I get the day right for the beginners class next time…
