Hot Yoga and New Recipes

Sunday started off with my first hot yoga class with a friend. A new friend, and even though new she is already a special friend that has added value to my life. It’s a wonderful feeling to share things you are passionate about with someone that feels the same way.

Enough of the mush and onto the hot yoga… 😉

Hot Yoga is a series of yoga poses done in a heated room. The room is maintained at a temperature of 98.6 degrees. As you can imagine, a vigorous yoga session at this temperature promotes PROFUSE sweating and by profuse I mean we were soaked from head to toe! So it makes the body very warm, and therefore more flexible. We attended FIRE yoga at Sunstone Yoga.
As we walked into the dark hot room we quickly found our spots in the back of the room trying not to step on anyone since we couldn’t see anything at first. Haha. Then we exchanged a look of “what the heck did we just get ourselves into?!” It took a few minutes to get acclimated to the tempature. Once we finished we both found the class invigorating and amazing in so many ways. We are definitely looking forward to the next class. 🙂

Then I was home for some kombutcha!
