Hot Yoga.

So, in an effort to balance my mind, body, and soul,  I have been really searching for ways to change my everyday life.  Sometimes, I spend time in silence for 10 minutes and not think a single thing, just listen. Sounds easy? Hah. No, this is the hardest thing to do.  One day, I wrote down all the negative thoughts in my head that came into my head in that day that I could remember, and I combatted all of them with truths.  Sometimes that means accepting failure but at the same time confronting it and letting it go.  I started shopping at whole foods and planning out my meals ahead of time.  I've been filled with so much more peace lately just by implementing these small changes.

On Monday, I got up at 5:45am to go to hot yoga.  If you know me at all, that is something so out of my comfort zone.  Not the yoga part, but the getting out of bed to do something physical and intense at 6 in the morning.  No one would believe I actually did it, but I did and I will go again.  I went again today, and this time I went at night to a candlelight hot yoga.  My instructor was Australian,  naturally.  Beautiful things happened in that intense sweat-bath pain-filled room.  While your body is sweating like crazy, your body starts to open up and eventually so does your mind.  It was incredible and invigorating.  As hard as it was, I want to go do it again right now because I felt so aware of every inch of my body, inside and out, as well as every thought that I was having.  I so easily could push aside negative thoughts and just be happy.

I've always like yoga, but this hot yoga stuff really does the trick for me.  It feels so detoxifying and cleansing.  You come out of it feeling as if you have gone through the fire and succeeded.  I have always like yoga to keep my mind and body centered, and right now that is exactly what I need.  So, bring on the heat.  Just by walking through those doors I know I have already accomplished something amazing and walking out I feel I have accomplished the world!
