So Thursday after work, I went to my first ever “hot yoga” class.
I’d been told I’d either love it or hate it…..
well, I must say, I’m somewhere in the middle…..
it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be.
Sweaty…..yes! This is me after class.
Doing downward facing dog with sweat dripping down your body and stinging your eyes…..
I knew it would be hot, but had no idea.
I swear there was not a dry spot on me when I finished!
I think I could have probably wrung my shirt out when I was finished…..seriously!
I have not sweated this much since I was in drum and bugle corp in high school
and we would march up and down hills in the humid Missouri August heat.
September is national yoga month and my first class was free, but I also had bought a
series of five classes earlier in the year, but was waiting for the weather to cool off before I gave it a try.
Will I be going back…..yes, I think I’ll try to go once a week until I use up those 5 classes and see if my body becomes more accustomed to the hot room…..100-105 degrees.
Maybe the colder it gets outside, the better that room will feel.
I did decide to bite the bullet and purchase one of these yoga towels….
When I took my first class you could borrow a beach towel to put on top of your
yoga mat, so you wouldn’t slip/slide around in all of your sweat.
It just didn’t work for me….it kept bunching up and sliding around…..hopefully
this will be a good investment.
