Our adventure this morning was to attend a Vinyasa yoga class at Yoga One Studio! We received a free class coupon at Yoga Jam and have been wanting to go ever since. Much to my surprise and excitement, it was HOT YOGA!! The room was 94* and I loved it. I haven’t sweat that much …ever? I was totally drenched and pruned by the end.
After. Guess you can’t really tell how soaked we are, but trust us – we were!
The class itself was 90 minutes – but it flew by. It was a typical vinyasa flow class with some Sun B’s, Chatarangas and Planks at the beginning, a bunch of randoms like Tree, Eagle, Airplane, Standing Splits, etc. in the middle and some abs, Wheel, Camel, Happy Baby, Spinal Twists, Pigeons and of course Savasana at the end. I actually wish there had been a few more Chatarangas because that’s my favorite pose! I feel so strong holding it 🙂 We were both mushy and shaky at the end. And I think I ripped open some muscles on my upper back! Muscles that don’t normally get sore are sore, so that’s good.
The studio was very cool too – I’d call it “Modern Hippie.” Beaded curtains, but still very hip. We will definitely be back, esp. since we have Fridays off this summer and next fall.
After yoga I went (wet – next time I’ll be bringing a change of clothes!) to the chair store to get a few more samples. I haven’t made a fabric decision yet, which I think means the first two were not “the one.” Scroll down for the new poll!
I finally got home at 12:30 shaking and starving! I had a bar in my purse, but I knew I was close to lunchtime and wanted to wait for something hot. I took a speedy shower and put on dry clothes and whipped up this 3 Muskateers Lunch –
Leftover collards + beans from last night mixed with 1/4 a block of silken tofu and a little Newman’s Own peach salsa
Plus blue chips (double this portion because I snacked on them right out of the bag as I prepped lunch!)
And mango (1/2), clementine + blackberry. I was going to put these in yogurt, but I decided to hold off and have the yogurt if I needed it. Turns out I didn’t, but it might come back as a snack.
So here we go again…..
Rock The Vote!
I came home with these, although we eliminated most of them upon getting them home and on the chairs. Unfortunately the three that we REALLY like are only in rolls so I just have a tiny swatch of them. Please don’t be biased because they aren’t able to be put on the chairs.
