I have done Hot Yoga before. I actually love it. Like..LOVE IT. There is something about the heat and the detox of the sweating and the feel of your muscles stretching that is entirely addicting to me. Until the news that Rejuv Medical’s new facility would have a true Hot Yoga Studio, I was forced to go to the Twin Cities to take in a class at one of the Core Power Yoga Studios. Loved all of them, but my trips were always few and far between due to the distance.
Hot Yoga is not for everyone. If you don’t like being sweaty, sticky and in a room where you could pretty much cut the air with a knife while wringing out your yoga drawers, then it’s not for you. But if you’re like me, and loved every minute of the challenging Hot Yoga Class, you’ll get a kick outta this guy’s recent post. The only thing he left out was the ceremonial ‘peeling off of the underwear’ to partake in a MORE THAN NEEDED post Hot-Yoga Shower.
One of my favorite parts?
It is now 110 degrees and 95% humidity. I am now balancing on one leg with the other leg crossed over the other. My arms are intertwined and I am squatting. The last time I was in this position was 44 years ago in the womb, but I’m in this for the long haul. My wife looks slightly weathered dripping sweat and her eyeliner is streaming down her face. Well, “for better or worse” is what we committed to so we press on.
