HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ERIC S.!
A few questions for new member Erica (pictured, right):
1) What’s harder, crossfit or yoga? Is that a fair question? It’s a fair question, but kind of tough to answer… For me, crossfit is harder because it’s so much more physically challenging and I’m just so much more used to yoga (8 years of yoga vs. 7 weeks of crossfit!). But I think someone who has a hard time focusing or meditating on being still, the breath, or feeling the deepness of some yoga asanas (the “poses”) might find yoga more challenging.
2) Are you more bendy than strong, and if so, does that make crossfit more challenging for you or are you glad to have the flexibility and mobility that you do? Heck ya – way more bendy than strong! But I love having that mobility. Keeping my Gumby-ness, focusing on proper technique, and just pushing myself a little further each week is my M.O. right now, and I feel like it’s a good place to start. “Strength will come,” [Coach] Jacinto told me last week and I trust that it will.
3) What (if anything) do yoga and crossfit have in common? A lot more than one would think just by looking at them! One of the biggest similarities – and one of the things that I love – is that the emphasis on scaling and modifying makes them both totally accessible to anyone, regardless of previous skill/fitness/flexibility level. Anyone can be physically and mentally challenged in either practice just by taking things up or down a notch.
