Yoga is Not for Punks + A Giveaway

By  | 
Back, Back1 of 2

I love my friends. I had to repeat this to myself several times on Saturday morning as I was peeling myself out of bed at 6:30 AM. Saturday… 6:30… In the morning. My girl Lauren had been singing the praises of "hot yoga" and convinced me to give it a try. Even though I'd recently had a "she almost killed me" experience with Jillian Michaels 'Yoga Meltdown', I decided that if Lauren liked it then it must be alright. Well, lemme tell you something… I was wrong. First of all, yoga is not for punks. It's not all gentle stretching and relaxing breaths. This was some real acrobatic type stretching and my body was not here for it. Now, add 105 degree temperatures and you have Bikram Yoga. I'm Hot yogaso out of shape, I get winded going up the stairs too fast yet despite this fact, I allowed myself to get roped into this Bikram foolishment. I struggled through the hour long class, trying to decypher Sanskrit, figure out the different poses and not pass out or vomit. Quite a task. Also, it's a bajillion degrees in there so every inch of me was dripping with sweat. Seriously, my spirit was sweaty. Lauren is convinced that I'm joining her for the next class, but I may have to re-evaluate our friendship contract because today (2 days later) I am so sore I can barely bend down to tie my shoe let alone contort into downward dog or triangle pose. I'll let y'all know what I decide. In the meantime, I though this would be the perfect time for a giveaway.

    I know for a fact that yoga is NO joke! Lol, but if you're sore it's working!

  3. It really isn't a game Kelley! I was next level sore.

    LOL! This was an amusing review on yoga! I laughed because a friend definitely asked be to join her for Bikram yoga before, and I was like…nah. This validates my decision, lol. #BLMGirl

  5. I was about to say your abs are sick!! Then i saw the caption.. LOL  That flip belt looks cool I dont do yoga but I walk a lot and that would be really handy for that.  Great post!

  6. I've never tried it although I'm curious. I faint easy so I'm not sure if this is a good idea for me.

    No you did not say your SPIRIT was sweating! Lmbo! To that, again, I say “No, but thanks for offering to share your crazy.” I’ll keep to generating my sweat sans.the 105 temps.

    Yoga isnt for punks! I am actually nervous to do hot yoga in fear I will pass out…and your friend is all cheery about it. Might need to re-evaluate that friend contract quick lol!

  9. Girl you can KEEP that hot yoga to yourself! lol But I love the idea of this belt. That might be just the thing to motivate me to get back to my workout routine lol

    • I agree with you @MomsNCharge hot yoga is not for me!!!! But that flip belt I have been eyeing for A WHILE!! Congrats Te I know the benefits of yoga just can't get with the heat  of hot yoga. 

  10. This is my first time visiting your blog! IT's so cute and I love your header.

    I love the yoga belt, I do workout and it would surely come in handy! Oh… and I wish I looked like that too! 

  11. " Yoga isn't for punks". That is too funny. My sister thinks yoga isn't a real exericise.  I should have her join a yoga class with me and she how well she does.

    I tried one session with my sister and NO MA'AM!!! Punks is not who it's for. Lol!! I am NOT about that yoga life. 

  13. Stacie


    Yes ma'am!  Yoga is hard work! I tried a gentle yoga and was like…"Uh..No".  #BLMgirl

    My favorite workout is on a rowing machine! Unfortunately they are pretty pricey but I am saving my pennies! In the meantime I like to lift weights, take my dog for long walks, and do yoga/pilates DVDs!

    Oh no! I tried to enter the giveaway the minute it ended, apparently — Good luck to the lucky winner! Seems like a very neat product!

  17. Seriously! My trainer roped me into starting yoga. It's so hard! Lol. It grows on you after a while. 

    • I really want to like it but I can’t help feeling I’m doing all the poses wrong. I need a remedial class ๐Ÿ™‚
