Sweaty Mess

The title of this post reflects exactly how I feel 30 minutes into a hot yoga class, when the sweat begins to lose its saltiness and my hair is in a permanent sweat bun. If you are a hot yoga aficionado you know exactly what I am talking about.  My love of hot yoga ebbs and flows.  In the winter I tend to crave it.  The warmth of the room, the deepness of forward folds and the studio regulars that make it feel like a community hub.

Last week I signed up for 2 months of unlimited classes at one of my favourite hot yoga studios. I like it there because there is no regular sequence, teachers are free to do their own thing and each class seems new. I am also hoping it helps me out with my IT band issues when I run. I have horribly tight IT bands but lose hip joints. It's a problem!! My goal for the next 2 months is to make it to class 3x a week.  Totally doable right?

The downside of so much yoga. I'm thirsty all the time and have to wash all my gym wear after every wash. Oh and with the running I am hungry all the time so my grocery bill is probably going to go up over the next 2 months.  But I'm totally saving by not buying diet coke right?? (not really... because my Kombucha addiction is a pricey habit).

Are you back in the yoga thing for the new year? Do you change up your yoga routine or are you a yoga purist??
