Yoga and crying


Today I tried yoga for the first time. I was completely anxious going into the class mainly because I was afraid of messing up and being around people I don’t know. I had already made up my mind I was going to sit towards the back near the exit “just Incase”. I got there and realized those spots were already taken. I ended up in the middle and was panicking just a little. There was a moment where we did a lion breath and a feeling of overwhelming emotion came over me and I started crying!!! I pulled through and finished the class and as I laid In savasana I started crying again. I don’t know what caused it but has this happened to anyone else? Is this normal?
