Last week I did something REALLY outside of my comfort zone. I tried HOT YOGA! I’ve always hated yoga because I’ve struggled with flexibility my entire life. Even as a dancer I always felt inadequate to the girls I danced with because I couldn’t kick my forehead.
Many of my friends (especially Shardae) advocate for yoga and I have a back injury from that gives me trouble sometimes so I always think about trying it and back out at the last minute.
In the spirit of stepping outside my comfort zone and trying to be confident I decided to try yoga and…
I LOVED IT!
I went to a place near me that has a “hot pod” in it that keeps the room at around 98 degrees. At first, I thought there was no way I was going to make it through the session in that heat but I did!
Not only did my body feel super relaxed but my mind did too. I’ve been a big ball of anxiety since I got back and that 45 minutes of not thinking about anything but breathing really helped me to calm down.
My instructor was really nice and motivating. She emphasized not looking around and comparing ourselves to others but to think about making progress from within.
It was a really positive experience all around and I can’t wait to go again!
