Emotional release during yoga class

By mrsjoe24,
I was in a class tonight and the teacher had us really focusing on our hips. In one pose I felt my upper thigh tremble and felt a rush of emotions flood my body. I pulled back out to go into child's pose to rest and compose myself. I felt overwhelmed with emotion the rest of the class and still haven't been able to shake it.  Has anyone else felt this before? How do you recover? I normally leave my mat feeling light and joyful. Tonight I feel heartbroken.  -Tiff
