shaky legs

I'm a 28-year-old women in good physical condition. I practice capoeira pretty intensively 3 times a week for an hour to an hour and a half. I also do yoga about once a week for 30 minutes on my own, and once a week I go to an hour-long class. Today we had a fairly intense class and my legs were shaking the whole time, including when doing poses that habitually I find easy and comfortable. Since my legs were shaking so much, I tried not to push it at all, because I found this strange. I had to leave right after class and the instructor was busy talking to another student, so I didn't bother to ask him...though I will ask the next time I go.

The only thing I can think of is that I have been a bit anxious for the past week, so my muscles have been tenser than normal. But even so, I've been practicing yoga for 2 years now and never had anything like that happen.

Any ideas?

Thank you,

Hello Mae,

I'll direct you to a reply: to a similar question in Yoga Journal to which my teacher responded. It is a brief but focused response and should provide you with some light assuming you read to it's end.
