As part of marathon training, I’m trying to be more vigilant about stretching and cross training. I really need to make yoga a regular thing. But sometimes I get in the habit of tossing it aside when I’ve already done my workout for the day and would rather stay on the couch instead of go to the gym.
I decided to try a new-to-me yoga studio in Albany, the Hot Yoga Spot! I did like my other studio, the Good Karma Studio, but I wanted to try something different and heard good things about Hot Yoga Spot. They have a wider range of classes that work better with my schedule, also.
The last time I took a real Bikram class in a super hot studio was over two years ago in Saratoga. This class was very similar to that and just as hot!
The room was a hot 104 degrees and I was sweating buckets. A few times I felt light headed so I just sat down on my mat for a bit until I could get back into the pose. I left feeling great though. I love how the heat and stretching makes my legs feel when I leave–so fresh!
The class was very crowded. I was really taken by surprise since my other studio would have like two or three people in the evening classes…I guess this studio is more popular! I can’t wait to try some other classes.
