Yoga Chronicles: Experience is the best teacher.

Before I decided to take yoga classes, I made sure to read up from a lot of different resources and FAQs available online to prepare and hopefully help make my experience as smooth sailing as possible. I was super conscientious when I was still studying you see, and I feel like I carried over this Hermione Granger-side of me even after I graduated #nerdalert. In almost everything I read, it said that we shouldn't eat at least three hours before class. I followed that to the letter and ensured I didn't eat anything until after the 6:00 - 7:30 PM class.

There was only one problem... I had roast beef, rice, and potatoes plus apple shake for lunch and I totally forgot that meat takes much longer to digest! #noobalert

That, my friends, is the reason why thirty minutes into my second time to do Hot Yoga earlier, I felt like throwing up to the point that I couldn't do any of the poses anymore and just proceeded to do either the Balasana or the Savasana. Our instructor Miss Dinah asked if I wanted to rest outside but I said I wanted to stay put. However, after fifteen minutes, I felt I was going to be sick again so I left. 

I feel so bad that I wasn't able to finish properly, but of course I didn't want to throw up inside the room. Miss Dinah was so thoughtful in checking up on me after the class and making sure I was okay. I told her that at least now I know not to do that anymore. As a famous Norwegian proverb goes, "Experience is the best teacher, but the tuition is high." Note to self: next time, eat something light.

Anyway, I still had a good time with my friends. And and and anddd, for P1,000 each, Rica and I signed up for a week of unlimited classes! We intend to go every day starting Monday. *(*´∀`*)☆

We go to Yoga+ in Tordesillas, Makati
I feel so legit.
Rica and me
Chum, me, and Emjei
I am also glad I was able to convince my friend/ carpool-mate Chum to try it together with her officemate/ friend Emjei. I am not sure if they would want to continue going to more classes, but I hope they liked their first trial class enough to consider it. 。◕‿◕。

We'd like to try other kinds of yoga next time so that we can see which one we like best. I can't wait!

A friend in Canada mentioned her hot yoga class was...well...it smelled really bad from all the heat. Was your room like that? I was just wondering if that made feeling queasy a little worse. With most things the hardest part is starting. So really you're off to a good start. Live and learn!
Have a great weekend Krissy!

Really? Yikes! The Hot room in Yoga+ didn't smell bad in any way. I am super sensitive with smell so I imagine it would be mightily uncomfortable to practice in a room like that. I'm sure I wouldn't be able to focus properly -_-

And thanks, Rick! It's a work holiday on Monday so it's another long weekend for us. :) Happy weekend to you, too!
