The Reality of (Last Night's) Hot Yoga

Here's my truth about hot yoga - at least hot yoga last night.  Yes, hot yoga was a blessing last year when I needed it, yes the arm balances are cool, yes I've made good friends.

But last night - the reality of last night's class is that I was so phucking hot that when the person beside me started coughing I was grateful for the breeze.  Yeah.  It was that kind of night.

I guess a slight addition to that - and a good side effect of growing up - is that when I'm that kind of cooked - all "sweet baby Jesus thank you for making my neighbor cough a slight breeze over my wrecked person" - now I just don't do a damn thing.  I choose my own adventure and for half of the class I did poses on the floor that slightly resembled the rest of the class while they were on their feet, and then I just flopped on my back and zoned out while they continued around me.  In my younger days I'd have just kept going, until I keeled over.  Literally.  So I think this is progress in the personal growth department.  You have to take it where you find it.
