I’ve had a Groupon to do hot yoga for a few months (um, I guess since yoga month, naturally.) I finally got to use it today. It is for 10 classes, but I have to take them all within 3 weeks (spoiler alert: probably not gonna happen.)
The class was held at Hot Yoga For Life and they have two locations in the Portland area. It was already pretty hot outside but when I walked into the studio, I was instantly sweaty. It wasn’t sauna-like as I had imagined. Just hot. Effing hot, to be exact. My feet and hands were slipping all over my yoga mat and I noticed the more seasoned hot yoga-ites brought large beach towels to drape over their slippery mats. Next time, Abbie, remember to bring a beach towel (additional spoiler alert: probably not gonna happen.)
So, in summation, if you like heat and yoga then it’s for you. If you like neither, steer clear silly.
