So after having publicly denounced hot yoga, I proceeded to try a hot yoga class today. There are two reasons for that: one, there is only that one hot yoga studio near my house and I desperately needed to go for yoga, and secondly, my husband probably realized I needed my sanity, and bought me a deal for 10 classes. I completely resisted his gesture, but then figured I should keep an open mind and try something new. I am always advocating change, so now it was time to live up to it myself.......and am I glad I did!
I actually enjoyed the class, the teacher Daisy was lovely and the class was a good pace. It helped that the temperature wasnt that hot, and Daisy didn't make us jump through poses. All in all, I was glad I did it. Sometimes it is good to expand your thinking and try something new before making a judgement, something I always tell my students, but didn't follow through myself in this case. I am not a 100% fan of hot yoga yet, but I will be going back for more classes :)
