Hot Yoga. Hot Mess.
I had to buy myself a yoga mat and a cute little carrying case thingy to get myself motivated but now after several classes, I'm glad I finally went. See pic to the left. Side note: the piano holding up the mat doesn't get nearly as much action as it should.
I used to think I was in (fairly) good shape before hot yoga. Now I'm not so sure. The class is 90 minutes long and I think they keep the room heated at around 100 degrees. Maybe hotter? You begin sweating the millisecond you step your big toe into the room. The series of poses and stretches that you do for the next 90 minutes don't seem that taxing but the next day? I was sore in places that I never knew I had.
The best part about my hot yoga class is that for 90 steaming hot minutes, I don't think about anything else except how easily I can access my water bottle. It's a beautiful thing.
