Hot yoga is a thing.



When I started hot yoga, in 2008, it wasn't really a thing yet. The classes were always moderately full, but every time I told someone about my new favorite hobby, they looked at me funny. What? How hot is the room? Wow. And you enjoy it? Yes. I enjoyed every 98 degree minute. I couldn't get enough! I'd go as often as my hectic work and school schedule would allow, and somehow I managed a consistent practice for years. Eventually I picked up other active hobbies (5K running, bike riding, etc.) and fell back a bit, but lately I've been going 3-4 times a week again.

Now, however, hot yoga is a thing. Over the years, I've dragged multiple friends to the studio with me (male and female), and I even convince my mom to try a hot pilates class last month. She suffered through the heat and walked out saying it wasn't so bad.

There's no real moral to this story or thesis to this post. It's just that I've been practicing yoga for so long I felt it deserved some sort of official recognition in this space. Be Yoga studio is situated in one of my favorite local spots: The Marietta Square. Their membership rates are reasonable, there's a bangin' smoothie shop inside, and the instructors are all so warm and welcoming.

  1. Goodness, I haven't taken a hot yoga class in wayyyyy too long. I really do miss it. There is an instructor I prefer to take class from but her schedule changed for the fall/winter and she no longer teaches classes when I'm available. I should probably just suck it up and take another instructor's class... Eventually lol. I go through phases of practicing it consistently but no matter how long I'm away, I always come back. In my opinion, the physical benefits from it are unbeatable :)

    1. I agree! When I was practicing routinely, my skin was clearer, my number twos were more regular and consistent (lol), I had more energy, I could go on! Even J was like "I like when you go to yoga. You're less stressed."

      And it sucks when you can't go to your favorite instructor. Everyone teaches differently, and sometimes you just can't flow with certain teachers.

  2. I love hot yoga. I only tried it twice, some years ago, but would love to make it a routine. My problem with yoga classes, is that they are so expensive. I end up just doing yoga at home and watching videos online. I haven't in a while though. Would love to get back to it!

    1. YES! They are very expensive. I literally have to cut back on certain things at times, just so I can work it into my monthly budget. When I try the ones online I'm less motivated. Something about actually being in the room with other people makes me pumped lol.

  3. I miss checking in here regularly, but...Med school. I really loved hot yoga and I did it consistently last year until I made the awful mistake of taking my now ex-boyfriend with me. It became our thing and so now, I can't go back. It's one of those things you end up giving after a bad relationship and it sucks.

    Hope you are doing well.
