I'm sold...took my first hot yoga class today. Well, um, make that I took my third hot yoga class today. You see, I liked it so well after the first class that I took 3 in a row! Now granted the advertised 700 calories burnt per hour seemed to be a bit overinflated. BUT I FELT GREAT - it really is addicting. Now we'll see how this goes longer term, but I figure that I can take at least one class per day for this week and count that a streak.
I should admit that I am a member of the frugal SparkTeam and so at the moment I am limited to 9 more days at this hot yoga studio (since I have pre-paid 2 year membership at 24hr Fitness and already take 4 classes per week there as part of my membership, it seems, well, wasteful to buy another membership to a new gym just because I can sweat more during yoga). Are you with me here? But it is tempting....
Best yet, my daughter and a friend of mine also got ten day complimentary passes beginning today, so I'm hoping we'll all be able to partake in this little bit of sweaty heaven together for at least a little bit longer.
Sweating buckets didn't really happen either. Sweat, yes, but actually pretty reasonably so. I'd say lots of thimbles. Wouldn't plan on going anywhere afterward except to the shower though.
Stretches and flexibility are sooooo much improved in the heat. LOVED IT!! Did I mention - it could become addicting!
Who else out there likes hot yoga??
