Saturday was superb, and a super end to this great week. And now, for your motivational enjoyment… for many of us who haven’t read Hot Yoga BG yogini Sarah Abigail Cahill‘s personal blog on Hot Yoga benefits — here it is! Thank you, Sarah, for being so dedicated to your practice! “So I Tried Hot Yoga for a Month, and Here’s What Happened” — Before you all click away at yet another review of a “fad” that everyone is writing about, just know that this one is different. Yes, I tried Hot Yoga for a month, but it wasn’t for the reason most bloggers do.
You see, I am an athlete, a college athlete. Being a college athlete, one of the hardest things you may have to come to terms with is sustaining a serious injury. For many people, like myself, there comes a point where you think that there will be no return to the sport that you held onto so dearly for so long. For some, like myself, you realize that you can’t live without it just yet, and will do anything to get back into it.
That’s where Hot Yoga came into play.
I had heard about it from other friends of mine. Honestly, it wasn’t something that I was the least bit interested in. For so long I was “in shape” just from going to practice and participating, but after eight months of recovering from back surgery, that wasn’t the case anymore. I had gained 10 pounds, and I could not even come close to touching my toes, and for those of whom who don’t know, in cheerleading, flexibility is a pretty important characteristic to have.
So there I was, out of shape, inflexible, and three months out until my senior year tryout. I was desperate.
It all started on a Saturday afternoon. I read over the instructions for the first time participants maybe twenty times, and I followed them to a tee. I drove to the studio, and sat in my car until I could muster up enough energy to go in.
When I walked in, I was surprised to be greeted by an enormous smile by the owner. After discussing some details about the studio, he escorted me into the studio and helped me put all my belongings where they were supposed to go.
Although that first class was intro-level, I could physically and mentally feel a difference in how I felt after the class. I was hooked.
The first few classes were pretty rough, and I came close to fainting on more than one occasion, but as I said earlier, I was desperate.
I was desperate to get back in shape. I was desperate to be a part of a team again. I was desperate to clinch that part of my identity again.
So, unlike every other workout plan that I made, I stuck with it. I went five times a week, and on the other two days I had mandatory workouts with our strength coach.
After the first two weeks, I started to feel more flexible, I started to feel stronger, I started to feel like myself again. It was absolutely stunning to see the effect that Hot Yoga really had on me. I had lost those ten pounds that I gained post-surgery, and I started to see the muscles that I thought were forever gone.
All in all, Hot Yoga really changed my life for the better. Yes, it takes a lot of time and effort, but so does any lifestyle change. It is all about how much you want it, and I wanted it really bad.
So, my Hot Yoga journey continues. Along with the physical aspect, I have seen other benefits from becoming a dedicated Yogini. I have more energy throughout the day, it’s easier for me to fall asleep, and my concentration on daily tasks has improved.
If anyone is iffy about trying Hot Yoga, my suggestion would be to go ahead and give it a try. You never know how you feel about something until you actually try it. With that being said, it isn’t for the weak at heart. Yoga takes serious practice, and it takes more or less depending on each individual person.
As for me, I am glad that I stumbled into this incredible studio. The people definitely make coming each day something to look forward to.
So, thank you. Thank you for giving me my hope of returning to my sport back.
