I take Aerobics classes now and that is so much more my thing: Loud music and jumping around a lot
Oh yeah.

Yeah, I mean there are lotus poses, but that's not what it's about at all lol! I can't do a lotus to save my life. Not all of it is suppose to be slow movement, some you just go fast through a vinyasca. Plus arm balances, which is my favorite, I love to fly and even basic poses that will get you extremely flexible over the long-term. I think you went to the wrong class because it's pretty intense stuff and no matter how long you been doing it, you should feel tired especially if you move through progressions. You need to find an instructor who's kind of crazy.

From the land of the midnight sun
where ice blue roses grow
'long those roads of gold and silver snow
Howlin' wide or moanin low
So many roads I know
So many roads to ease my soul
