I had a lovely afternoon snack: an apple with honey roasted cinnamon peanut butter, and a couple pieces of chocolate. Well, first chocolate, then healthy apple. Just the way it should be.
They say they don’t judge a book by it’s cover and perhaps you shouldn’t judge a yoga studio by it’s name. But, I did. I had my first hot yoga experience tonight. I saw real because my gym attempted to offer a class this fall and it was more warm yoga than hot yoga. This was more along the lines of the hot yoga I was expecting.
It was a new studio in town: The Funky Buddha Yoga Hothouse. I mean, come on, how could you not at least be intrigued with a name like that? Thanks to Groupon, I have an unlimited month!
I absolutely loved the class. I got so sweaty and I got deeper into some poses than I have ever gone before. I even attempted a couple that I never ever thought I could come close to doing before. Crow, anyone? I didn’t get fully into the pose. Yet. One day, I will.
I left feeling more flexible and more relaxed than I have in awhile. The tight muscles I had going in are completely gone now. I can’t wait to go back!
Once I got home, all I had on my mind was one thing: green monster! I used 1 cup of frozen berries, a banana, 1/2 cup vanilla Chobani, 1 cup almond milk, and about 1 cup of spinach. All topped off with some Kashi GoLean Crunch.
I should have used less milk; it was a bit thinner than what I was hoping for. Nonetheless, completely delicious.
Have you tried hot yoga? What did you think?
