Mark and I went to a hot yoga class last night, at a yoga studio here in York. Our friend Craig invited us. I mean, I thought he was our friend. Now I am not so sure. He failed to mention that this was a hot yoga class. I have taken a few beginner yoga classes at Lotus Moon in York city. Those classes were easy going, the room was the perfect temperature, there was happy morning sunlight streaming through the windows, and they played spa music, burned incense, and talked in a soothing voice about thanking yourself for all the beautiful things you do and how cool you are that you came to yoga.
Hot yoga is nothing like that at all and Craig failed to mentally prepare me for what was about to happen. Pretty sure I will never forgive him for that. Ever.
I decided yoga is kind of a hipster retro thing, and since I was going to the yoga studio in the city it was even more hipster, and since I decided I was going to bike there, that made it way more hipster, so much so that I should get some kind of hipster award – like an antique typewriter I can bring with me to Starbucks instead of my laptop.

I was never a fan of high school gym class. Sports left me humiliated in a puddle of my own inadequacy. In trying to keep pace with my classmates, I was often left breathless. So you can imagine my hesitancies when I enrolled in a requisite yoga class in college. Standing in the gymnasium with my black, roll-up mat, I never imagined that this form of exercise would have such an enduring impact on my life.
The weather was breathtaking, the turn out was amazing, and the yoga was invigorating. We couldn’t have asked for a better first session of No Sweat in the Park.

There are plenty of places to get your yoga on in York County. But before you break out your mat and get to stretching, test your knowledge of poses and try them out!
Yoga is an important part of my daily schedule. I practice at three different locations (four if I include my college-daughter’s empty bedroom) and am definitely “out of sorts” if I miss my “yoga-time.” I am somewhat fanatical about exercise; … Continue reading
