I have been traveling each month to a new country since May of 2016 and this girl is tired. I decided to rest this weekend and spend the end of May and the month of June doing what I love – hiking, kayaking, running, yoga and cycling. Not to mention focusing on my nutrition. I plan to make a better Mimi over the next 35 days.
Day 1 – Hot Vinyasa Yoga
I signed up for 30 days unlimited classes at Decatur Yoga & Pilates. This yoga studio is not near my house but they offer more types and frequencies of classes. I figured I could pop into this studio in the evenings since they have a 7:45 class Mon-Wed. They also have late classes on the weekend.
Today’s class started at 6PM. With the wonderful Friday, holiday-weekend traffic, it took me 1 hour to get to the studio that is only 16 miles away. I arrived at 5:45 which was more than enough time to decompress and setup for class. The hot room for Vinyasa is 95-100 degrees so it is definitely manageable. There were only 14 students so there was no competition for mirror space 😀. The instructor was very down to earth like most yogis. She took things slow so that we could try new poses. I never used a strap before and we did this class. I really enjoyed the format of the class.
After class I stopped into Roots and Juices ,which is in Buckhead, for a cold pressed drink made of cucumbers, mint and ginger – The Hydrate. I just love drinks that have ginger in them. Once I arrived home I had my evening snack of a One Salted Caramel protein bar, showered and started my evening RELAXATION.
