funky buddha.

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?

I have yet to try it. The only place around me that offers it has carpet floors. Something about excessive sweat and carpet stops me from entering!

Carpet, that’s so odd for a yoga studio!

I will assume we were not in the same class today! I was at the 7 PM class. I LVOE this place! 🙂

Ah, that’s so funny! I was at the 4. Maybe I’ll see you there sometime, though!

Yes I have tried hot yoga and really liked it. The warmer the better. The poses were a bit different than what I am used to (I do anasura at Expressions of Grace) but managed to hang in there.

I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m dying to get to a yoga class soon! I’m studying abroad next semester in Rome…think they’ll have some hot yoga there? If so, I’m in! 🙂
