I survived!

I made it through my first hot yoga class last night! I didn’t pass out, nor did I throw up, so two major accomplishments there. :)

There were a few times, especially toward the end, when I felt a little dizzy and had to sit down. Two of my friends who came with me had the same experience. But, I was surprised at how I was able to handle some of the poses. I’m more flexible than I thought! You do come out of there looking like you’ve been in a swimming pool – I’ve never sweat so much in my life. But, I’m going to try it again to see if I can handle another session (plus, I bought a week pass, so I need to get my money’s worth!).

So, while my mind is on fitness and keeping in shape - and to not bore you to tears with my continuous dronings about yoga - thought I’d give a shout-out to Title 9. I love the Title 9 clothing line. This company has a great philosophy and I really like the fact that they feature real women in their catalogs, and include a little information about each one. Very inspiring. Images like the one above just make me want to donn one of their organic cotton tops and climb a mountain. Well, maybe wear the top, not so much climb the mountain.

Title 9 also carries “Life is Good” products, which always puts a smile on my face. So, check out Title 9 if you're looking for great workout gear.

It's Terrific Tuesday everyone - hope something puts a smile on your face today!

I've been wanting to try "Hot Yoga" for a long time! I've always been scared because I'm claustrophobic and I thought that all that heat might make me feel too confined. It does seem like a great workout though!!

way to rock it like you own it! did you leave feeling so alive and yet so at peace?!

Love Title 9 gear- just the best!

I can see where hot yoga may be difficult for someone who is claustrophobic, especially if it's a really full class. They tell you not to leave the room, unless it's an emergency. So, if you start to feel bad, sitting or lying down tends to help.

Keep it up - you will grow to THRIVE on it!
When I did Bikram, I heard someone say two days of back-to-back sessions is worth an entire week of practice - your body benefits THAT MUCH!

I wish I could find it down here in Brazil, but the only thing resembling a Bikram studio is a yogi in a room with a space heater - not quite the same thing! ;)

Congrats on surviving the first of what could be many, many classes :) You should be proud!

Gotta say I love T9 too - they even have bras for built-for-speed gals like me!

I love Title 9 also! Cute and comfy! Glad you made it through the session. Where are you taking your class? I'm starting back in a couple weeks!
