My 2nd try at hot yoga this evening! The room was at 102 F. Phew! I don't think I've sweat that much in my entire life. Seriously- I soaked my entire shirt . . . not that you wanted to know that (lol!) Totally worth it though and very rewarding!!! And, I think you should try it too :)
Don't worry if you're not super flexible! Yogi teachers are awesome and meet you where you are. We all have to start somewhere and there is no shame in being a beginner.
I still feel like a complete baby myself in the world of stretching / yoga, but I'm stomping my pride and reaching out.
I admit- it's sooo easy to constantly compare yourself to that amazing girl who can do that incredible spilt with seemingly perfect ease and think "no fair!". In all reality, though- she worked for it and so can I ( and you!) if we're willing to show up and do what it takes.
The question isn't, can you? But, will you?
There are so many poses that I can't wait to do but really just need to listen to my body (not pull anything!) and be consistent. :) Isn't that with everything ? ? ?
Are you a "stretcher" or yogi?
Have you tried hot yoga before?
If not, is yoga something you would consider getting into for the health benefits and just plain AMAZING feeling you get from a challenge :)
