If there’s a hot power vinyasa studio in the town I’m visiting, I’ll do everything possible to go! Sadly I didn’t make it to Charm City Yoga in Towson, but since I had all Sunday to travel to Fairfax, I made a point to come up early and try out Dancing Mind Yoga! It’s a Baptiste-affiliated studio here and has all the components of a great practice: heat + power + flow.
The class was just what I was looking for. It was hard, it left me shaking, and most importantly: drenched in sweat. Some of my friends have said that I never sweat – that’s sort of true – I DO sweat, but it takes a lot to get me going. I need the heat to get the most out of my practice. ‘Heat from within’ doesn’t always work with me.
Jessie of the Messie Kitchen offered to try out hot yoga for the first time with me. [She had only done some cold yoga classes and she is now hooked!!]
She also baked some Amish Friendship Bread and brought me a loaf!! Can’t wait to try some of this tomorrow
After yoga I came home starving. I downed my Hungry Bar before yoga – my lunch was not very filling! And even with a snack, I was more than hangry for dinner.
Luckily I travel with dates – they worked perfectly to ward off a hunger crash so I could shower and quickly get over to dinner.
All future KERF meetups are going to be at Whole Foods!
So easy to coordinate. Always an amazing ‘menu.’ Something for everyone! I met about 15 new (and old) friends at the Whole Foods here for dinner. I couldn’t have asked for a better evening! The WF here is GINORMOUS and there were THREE big stations of salad / hot bar.
I loaded up and took these gorgeous photos ; )
The lighting in the café was awful
Highlights of this dinner were forbidden rice, chickpeas, some kind of spicy potato and lots and lots of wheatberries!
Also kombocha to drink (although this flavor was a little bland for me)
Amazing group of NOVA friends!!
It’s past my bedtime and I’m beat. Can’t wait to snuggle in my king size bed with my pillows!
Tomorrow AM Home Clean Home goes up!!!! I’ll be back at lunchtime live from the dietetics conference!
