Hot Yoga, explained.

For those of you who have never attempted Hot Yoga, I thought I would give a brief explanation of how the classes usually go. And for those of you who have endured the practice, I think you can relate to the following.

 I’m SO excited to go to YOGAAAAAA!

I have arrived to the yoga studio and I’m ready to go

Ok, time to stretch

Image

And stretch some more

There is a lot of stretching going on

Please don’t fall, please don’t fall, please don’t fall

Image

 

Seriously, it is so hot in here

And with that, I’m off to class.

(What’s your favorite type of yoga?)

  1. The kind that gives me lots of time to ease my way into the pose, and come out of it. That isn’t too hot or cold. The kind that doesn’t involve too much yogic blah blah blah. And no heavy mouth breathers near me. That just about drove me out of one class.

  2. this post is hilarious! i like power yoga, preferably unheated (but not cold) because I like to move through the poses and feel like my heartrate gets up and i sweat SO MUCH that hot yoga makes me unable to hold the poses since i’m slipping around everywhere and focusin on how much i’m sweating rather than my breathing.

    • I’ve tried regular yoga, and I find I am too stiff to really get into it. As much as I sweat (and I am a sweaty gorilla) I love the hot stuff because it allows me to really get into each pose! Everyone’s different though!

  3. Haha love it! Like Keith, I like a class that gives you enough time to get settled in the pose before moving on to the next. I find it depends on the instructor- some hot yoga classes are like that, some ashtanga. I also dislike super heavy breathers and people who sweat a ton. If you are going to sweat (totally normal) at least have a towel to mop it up. Yuck!
