Ignite My Mind, Body and Soul

I went to hot yoga Friday evening for the first time in almost 7 months.  I am not sure why I ever took a break from it, but I was quickly reminded of why I LOVE hot yoga…it is detoxing, it is a good strength workout, it gets me a good stretch, it relieves stress, it helps me focus on my breath, I feel relaxed and refreshed afterwards, I sleep better afterwards, it reminds me not to pass judgement on myself or others, it reminds me to accept where I currently am and not focus on the past or the future…The list goes on and on.

Sunday’s hot yoga experience was just as fulfilling as Friday night’s and I’m glad that I pushed myself out the door both times.  While Ironman training, I will definitely have to be mindful of getting to hot yoga at least once a week!!  It is great for the mind, body and soul!!

  1. The warm + cozy yoga studio definitely feels good on a cold, winter day. With more of these days in the not so distant future, I think I’ll be hitting the yoga studio more, Erin!! 🙂
