This month I’ve been working on my goal of practicing yoga at least one a week. I’ve taken yoga classes here and there over the years, but have never been consistent and thus have never seen the long term benefits of yoga.
After work yesterday I headed home and had a snack before getting ready for yoga. I knew I wouldn’t be able to make it until 9PM, so I had 2 glasses of water and a Gingerbread AdvoBar.
I headed over the Thrive Yoga, a beautiful studio in Rockville, MD, around 7PM for the 7:30PM class. Thrive offers a number of different classes, with a number being offered each evening. It was actually quite adorable seeing all of the women coming into the studio for the Prenatal Yoga!
For last night’s Vinyasa Flow class, I wore my new Athleta Queens Luscious 2 Tights that I got while I was in Providence last weekend. They are so comfortable and were perfect for Vinyasa.
The 90 minute class was wonderful! Dave met us where we were at and encouraged us to use blocks, straps, and blankets to make us more comfortable in the positions. Though I don’t really know the differences in yoga styles, I really enjoyed how relaxing Vinyasa was. I do think I like hot yoga more, but this was a great class after a long day.
After yoga, I made myself a simple salad. Romaine as the base and then topped with avocado, cheddar cheese, salsa, and grilled flank steak.
I honestly couldn’t have imagined a better hump day! I ended it feeling revived, refreshed, and energized.
