Bhangra is an aerobic class giving you a full body
workout while teaching some traditional dance from
India. Burn calories and have fun doing this trendy
Now that doesn't sound bad does it? Not at all....I think it sounds fun. I all but begged my friend, Sherry to take it with me. She looked at the description and laughed. She told her husband I am weird. I guess I can accept that. I am a little weird. But I thought it sounded more fun than Power Cycling (yikes!!!!)
So, yesterday was the big day for my class. It starts at 9 A.M. so it was a big deal to get out of the house with the kids dressed and fed by 8:30 -a workout in itself. I accomplished it. I was a little nervous since I haven't taken a class like this for quite some time (years and years). When I get to the room I am introduced to a bubbly woman wearing all black (note to self: good choice on the black pants & tank top you picked). She told me to get my shoes and socks off (another note to self: paint your toenails when you get home!) She then told me to pick out a couple of scarfs from the box and tie them to my middle finger (yet another note to self: you are weird! what are you doing here???) Before long several other woman join the group, from all walks of life - none of them look weird. So, the class starts and the teacher is explaining the dance moves. I was obviously the only one who had not been to a Bhangra class before. So, she was basically explaining them for me. What can I say....the moves were very foreign to me. What did I expect. I've never been a great dancer. My motto was always if you can't sing or dance well at least do it funny. This was definitely funny. There was yelling. I think they were saying Bali Bali. I am not sure. It was fun but I guess I need to loosen up a little. At one point (I think when we were doing the "sexy arms" move) I just stopped and started laughing hysterically. I was just thinking about how GLAD I was that my friend Sherry was not there to see me make a complete arse of myself. At the end we did these stretches that were some Yoga moves (I have never taken Yoga and I am NOT flexible at all). One move was called a can opener. Funny. Overall the class was good and I can't wait until next week. Every muscle in my body is sore today - I didn't expect that. I hope it is better for my aerobics on Saturday. I'll let you know how it goes!
