At Home Hot Yoga

by Jenny on January 11, 2012

After a pretty intense (stolen) workout last night, on top of being sore from my workouts earlier in the week, I knew my body needed some serious stretching and relaxation today. And that is just what I gave it.

Workout

I really like doing yoga and have a few at home yoga DVDs; However, my ultimate yoga experience is always in hot yoga classes. Since we have our “workout” room staged at home and we own a couple space heaters, I thought I would combine at home yoga with my own version of hot to be able to get more out of my workout this morning.

I set up my yoga station with my mat, the TV, some water and a space heater.

And popped in Rodney Yee’s Yoga Burn DVD.

After 40 minutes of stretching and yoga practice in the hot workout room, my body was thanking me and I was very to start my day.

Breakfast

For meal #1 on the day, I put together an egg wrap using a honey wheat flat out, one egg, 1/4 cup egg beaters, two slices of bacon and cheddar cheese slices.

Breakfast burrito it is!

Off to bust through this Wednesday! It’s hump day!! :)

Question:

Have you ever made a hot yoga studio at your house?

Do you prefer hot yoga or room temperature practice?

I love practising in India, where you get your hot yoga any time, just in front of your door step ;)

I lurrrrrrrrve hot yoga. When I practice at home, I don’t heat the room, but maybe someday when I have an extra room to dedicate to fitness.

Hot yoga is my favorite! How hot did your room get? Were you sweating?

The room wasn’t warm but not as hot as I would have liked it to be but I think I can fix that next time by turning the heater on before starting my practice and letting it warm up some first.
