Hot yoga boot camp!

So I started a week free at Core Power Yoga in Minneapolis tonight! I didn't really intend to, but I went to a boot camp "open house" which I thought was a free class to try, but it was not, so I started my one week free! 

92 degree's while kick boxing, squat jumping, Push was intense! I came home and felt like I ran 10 miles in the july heat--Woah nelly! But it was a great class, I am just not used to doing HOT classes, even my one yoga class was in the 80 degree range. 

So begins my week free of Core Power, I will be adding their yoga in along side my running (which will be ON track this week and rockin' even in the rain!) and I am excited about the benefits! So often, the hardcore girl in me wants to lift all day, run and overlook the importance of flexibility! It's something I am constantly revisiting! 

Stretching can increases and strengthen your muscles and the stronger your muscles, the lower your chance of injuring them. Stretching will also increase your flexibility by moving lactic acid from the muscles. When you increase your flexibility you increase movement and fluidity. If you’re a runner, your means your stride. Whatever your activity, when you increase flexibility, you increase speed--this could be the boost I need to revamp my running energy! 

Fun updates! 

  • Tomorrow I am going to a small business meeting/coaching session to get some help and idea's about Temple Training and Fitness! 
  • I had a coffee/walk date this weekend that I think went very, very nicely! : ) 
  • I am plotting a new, intense boot camp coming up soon! Keep those upcoming holiday pounds at bay! 

Do you have a favorite yoga class or style? Have you tried the HOT yoga or other hot classes?

Im almost embarrassed to say this (almost :)) but I think Id LOOOOVE hot yoga if it were shorter :)

90 minutes is far too long for me to do a class.

60? 30? Id be in hotheaven.

I tried the Bikram 110 degree heat Yoga... That was the first time in my life I had silver stars spinning around me. It would have been impossible to sweat anymore. With that said - as long as I stayed hydrated, the next day I always felt amazing.

Wow, 90 minutes. I might faint. I'm kind of scared to try hot yoga, as a kid I'd always get over heated... so... yeah... I'm scared. You're awesome though for doing it :)

The bootcamp hot sculpt was only 60 min, but I even got dizzy a few times, not at ALL used to the heat, but it was really fun, I was SOAKED!

Hot classes scare me, lol. I have been terribly neglecting my yoga lately. When I get so focused on weight loss I often forget it's important!

For all those who are nervous about trying hot yoga for the first time, just go for it, you'll love it! Be warned though, you might just find it addictive!

There is no scientific evidence that stretching increases muscular strength. There IS however evidence that static stretching temporarily decreases your strength after stretching.
