Week 2 of the Yoga Journey

On Monday I took part in, Hot Hatha Flow for the first time…..oh my days….hot is an understatement, I came out of it dripping literally. It was really hard to concentrate and hold your positions because of the temperature. Its really interesting as all of the sessions are done in heat but some of the classes are ridiculously hot and others are a nice bearable hot.

I guess I am still learning how to concentrate and not let others thoughts come into my head such as ‘I need to get out of this room before I melt!’

The rest of the Yoga sessions this week were good stretching and I feel my mind and body improving with every session.

With Spinning on Tuesday and I had to miss a Yoga session on Wednesday night as I went to watch Manchester United…. who put in a very poor performance against Hull. I had a couple of days rest this week.

Ready for a weekend of swimming, yoga and family time.
