I'm doing a challenge right now through Lululemon called Sweat this City.  Not that I own, or ever will own, any Lululemon items (see-through or otherwise), but this program offers eight free yoga and other classes over the course of two weeks.  How could I pass it up? 

Last week I went to a hot yoga class as part of the challenge.  The room was ridiculously hot.  Like a sauna, basically.  And there was a line to get in, so everyone was scurrying to get spaces and lay down their mats.  I crammed my mat into a spot in the back row (my usual favorite place in any kind of fitness class).  The instructor came in and casually said, "Just so you all know, the back row is the hottest place in the room."  As if we even had the option of moving at that point.  No problem, I told myself, it's only an hour.  I can survive anything for an hour.  Then the instructor started class... "Welcome to 90-minute Hot Yoga."   

I went to a TRX class over the weekend that was way more normal.  "Normal" meaning "regular temperature and only an hour," of course.

Ah!! 90 minutes of that Bikram yoga or whatever they call it? That is out of control. I bet you lost 20 pounds of water just being there!!

I'm scared to try hot yoga. Good for you for doing it!
