In preparation of gaining strength for my upcoming military deployment, I have started going to Hot Yoga classes again. Which technically is only warm Yoga since the room is at 85 degrees – but anyways, I’ll just go with the term ‘Hot’ for now.
I used to be a Yoga-fanatic and was a Yoga instructor in
. This was such an amazing experience and I loved being able to introduce the practice to new soldiers. However, when I got home I basically changed everything about my life (a totally different posting – I will share more of that at a later time, maybe). Yoga was one of many things that I walked away from. Iraq during my last deployment
I am working my way back into yoga and am shocked at how quickly my body remembers the postures. Especially considering it has been about 5 years. I’m not an expert, but at my last class I was able to get back into the ‘Pigeon’ pose! I tried to do it again later that evening for darling, but it was not happening. Apparently the ‘hot’ environment is key to getting into this posture.
The photo above is the pigeon pose (royal style). No – that photo is not me. I wish I had photos, but those in yoga tend to get irritated when you start busting out your camera during class.
So whats with the heading? One of the best compliments one can receive is that they have a yoga butt – which translates into a 'high and perky bottom'. Did someone say that to me? No. Well – at least not yet- but it is a goal!
