A month ago I wrote a blog about staring hot yoga in Brantford. We have now moved on from Brantford and are now staying in Kitchener, so feels like a sensible time to see if there was any progress….
When staying in Brantford, I was in the fortunate position to go 3-4 times a week. Every session was tough, sweaty but I managed to find some inner calm and relax into it. I’m not sure how realistic it will be to continue doing yoga that frequently, but after seeing these results…. I may be persuaded!
Both photos were taken without a warm up, in the evening after a busy day.
|Say what? My fingers are closer to my toes!
|Improvement or what! In ONE month!
Let’s look at that again in more detail….
Even if you take into account for the slightly different camera angles, there is certainly a difference.
Face on photos make it much easier to see the difference – I can’t believe this!
This is honestly the closest I have ever been to touching my toes, in my life. I had hoped for a a slight improvement, but this is much more than I ever imagined! Hot yoga has helped my flexibility and stiffness in my body, which has felt amazing. The only downside was the acne breakout I experienced; however, I was too lazy to do much about it besides buy tea tree oil as I knew we’d be moving onto another town in a few weeks.
As for the other positions in yoga I mentioned in my previous blog.
– Childs pose: A very slight improvement, I found that my forehead could comfortably reach the floor by the end of a session. Depending on the day, I could sometimes do this at the beginning.
– Hero’s pose: very little improvement here – still using blocks but it is much more comfortable now!
Anyway, thanks Moksha Yoga
, Brantford – I am impressed! We have downloaded an audio session to continue doing yoga, when we can, on out travels 🙂
