365 Challenge Day 106 – Sweat

1 Sep

I have never been to class that was so humid as today.  It rained last night, and was predicted to rain today, so outside was already humid.  Being Labor Day, there were only two classes offered at the studio today, and just about every single spot was taken, probably more than 50 people in the room. Oh. My. God.  It was so hot and humid, and I sweat so much, that by the end of the class my fingers were pruned like little raisins, like they get after a long hot bath!

Sweat is physically cleansing, and can be emotionally healing.  I’m not very familiar with the Native American tradition of using sweat lodges as a spiritual ceremony, but I’ve been told they can be very powerful.

I’m not sure how it works, but the heat and sweat are definitely a big part of what makes hot yoga such an intense, powerful, renewing, and healing practice.   Bring it on!
