Happy Werkout Wednesday everyone! I'm so excited for this week because I will be reviewing one of my favorite workouts...hot yoga!
Now I know there are a lot of mixed feelings out there about different styles and types of hot yoga and some people love it and others think it's crazy. I have been taking hot yoga for almost ten years now and teaching it for four and really love it. With that said, I don't think every hot class is for everyone. I think you have to shop around a little bit and see which style and studio suits you.
Although I teach hot yoga on a regular basis (and will probably do another review on the studio I teach at) I wanted this one to be an unbiased opinion. So I tried out Fuel in Portland, Oregon and was incredibly impressed! The flow was amazing, challenging and sweaty in the best of ways! So read further to get my opinion on this hot yoga class.
Werkout Wednesday is HERE and I can't wait to talk about one of the most loved...and hated...workouts of all time: RUNNING!
Think about it, humans and our distant ancestors have been running for as long as we have been around. If you want some more interesting facts and insight into running I highly recommend Christopher McDougall's book, Born to Run. Running is something so primal, something that connects us to the rest of the animal kingdom, something that was done out of necessity and survival.
So why is it so hard?! :D
There are runners, there are people (like me) who try to run but just don't always love it and there are people who you could not pay enough to run around the block. My point is, for something that we all were technically designed to do, there are a lot of strong feelings towards this whole running business. Let's talk about it!
