Feelin’ HOT HOT HOT update: Sorry I didn’t post last night – I was too tired to type.
Yep, it was as hot and sweaty as I thought it was going to be. Maybe I shouldn’t have decided to do hot yoga as my first step into the yoga world. Meh.
So let me tell you a little bit about my experience. I couldn’t stop sweating which made my downward dogs difficult since I was slipping and sliding everywhere. If I decide to continue after my 10 classes (jury is still out) I will definitely need to invest in a Yogitoes towel to help diminish the slippage. About half way through the class I felt like I was going to pass out, but I forced myself to just take a break and drink some water while I sat back and watched everyone else around me pose perfectly. I finished strong (kinda) and after exiting the room decided I would be back next week. What can I say, I’m a glutton for punishment. I can tell you that about 15-20 minutes after class I felt so rejuvenated and cleansed, probably because I’d just sweated out a weeks worth of toxins from my body, but it’s the one bright spot in my first experience of hot yoga.
Next up on the docket for Wednesday, some Pilates and possibly some planning for the Bean’s first birthday – which will be here in less than two months. I’m thinking cupcake themed…crazy how time flies! She’s growing up so fast – slow down!
