Tonight I attended my first Hot Yoga class, and of course, I dragged Hubs along :) LOL. He is such a great sport. He shouldn't complain, there were plenty of young girls there. I wish I could say the same about the guys, only hefty guys that were dressed in sweats with mystery stains on their shirts. Ewwww.....
Well to sum up how I felt after the class, allow me to present the following picture:
Jess, you were right, did I ever sweat, I didn't know it was possible to sweat so much. I was literally soaked through when I finished. And I didn't bring a change of clothes which made the 30 minute drive home uncomfortable. The raisin picture is also appropriate because I felt very mellow and relaxed after the class. Love the feeling. Would I go again?
In fact, I paid $20 for one week of unlimited classes (offered to new students), so I will check out the various styles of the instructors. Compared to my regular Yoga for Runners class, I didn't find it as stretchy, but just a rigorous, just in a different way. Our instructor was slightly monotone, but maybe that goes with the style. I am also used to my very awesome yoga instructor, Sheree, who tells the best little stories mid posture.
The studio is really nice, fairly new, with wood floors which was good with all of the sweating. Another bonus of the sweating was that my skin felt so soft afterwards. It's like a free facial.
Tomorrow is my Yasso's, maybe I'll revolt and do Yoga instead?!! Nah, I guess I'll get them over with. Its my last really hard workout before the Quebec Marathon.
