Think again! Here I am after a strong Vinyasa yoga class this evening. This is how I finish every week.
I know it’s summer, but this is seriously strong work. And when I got home about 40 minutes later I was still as hot and sweaty.
So if you think that yoga is only for women, or to relax and stretch, think again—the relaxing and stretching is only a small part of it. There are styles that enhance physique and stamina, and that will make you pour sweat like a tap.
You know you’re working hard when all the mental chatter disappears to the background. You’re too busy observing how much sweat you’re pouring out to listen to it.
I encourage those of you who think of yoga as something hippy to try it. You might just surprise yourself.
