followed by asking ridiculous questions like....
"What if I pass out and hit my head on the floor?"
"Will it kill me?"
"Has anyone ever died?"
I am sure she immediately regretted that invitation. Hot yoga has always been intimidating to me. I am not good at normal temperature yoga. The idea of so much heat and yoga at one time was just too much. But after asking the spouse if he was game we decided to give it a go cause I am trying this thing where I try new things and try to stop being a curmudgeon. Change is hard.
So Sunday we showed up with our yoga mats and towels and fear. We walked into the room and were hit by a wave of heat. I immediately started sweating buckets. While we sat there waiting for the class to start all I could think was
And then we started and I had to concentrate so hard on not falling over that after awhile the heat didn't even bother me. I was more concerned about knocking other people over. There were a few times like when I was trying to hold a super sweaty leg in place which is impossible when you are sweating non-stop at a high rate that it almost was too much for me. But overall I really enjoyed it. Afterwards I felt great. My aches and pains from running where gone and I felt long and lean. I think I might even go back. This is why I should try new things. Sometimes a 105 degree room while doing yoga sequences is not as bad as it seems.....or I may still just be dehydrated.....
