Is Yoga Making Me Feel Sick???

Well I was supposed to join the gym  - but instead I bought myself one of those Cudo vouchers for a three month pass to unlimited yoga all for the amazing price of $29.00.  So since I have always wanted to try yoga I thought that I would buy one of the vouchers.

So off I go to the first class of which I chose a beginners class.  The setting is just amazing on the waterfront looking at the glistening water as you get yourself into positions that I am sure the body is not meant to ever get into.  But I came away feeling quite exhilarated...

I have since been to four more classes each of varying levels - and as the studio is brand new and they are trying to build up their business they are catering for all needs and are very open to suggestions of what people want out of a class - how good is that.....

But the last two days I have been feeling really unwell - dizzy, headaches, aching/burning legs and just so tired.  I have tried eliminating food groups that I thought were contributing to my symptoms but with no relief.  So I've begun thinking is the yoga  releasing all the toxins throughout my body.  I can't think of anything else that would be making me feel so awful (I don't ever get sick (touch wood))

Has anyone else experienced similar effects after doing yoga - or am I being a drama queen?????

Today I'm linking up with Grace from "With Some Grace" for FYBF

  1. Not sure what sort of yoga you are doing? I'm on the GC too. I do hot yoga at Fireshaper - it does release toxins and you often feel worse before you feel better! I've done different types of yoga for a long time - yoga is so much more powerful than the physical exercise of it. But it is worth bearing with the discomfort for the benefits, at least in my experience. And the feeling you get with the flexibity and release can be really empowering. Good luck from one 40 something to another!
