Meet me on the mat – Yoga mat that is!

Lunchtime yoga may be my new favorite thing! I work from home, so it is perfect for me to run out from 12-1 for a quick hour yoga class and I come back feeling focused and ready to work the rest of the day. Does anyone else enjoy lunch hour yoga?

IMG_3890I am a huge fan of hot yoga! I’ve tried multiple studios and different types of yoga and usually buy 10 class passes to various places to try them out and see what I think. I am going to breakdown some benefits and different type of yoga for you guys incase you are considering trying it out. I would HIGHLY recommend it because you feel fantastic afterwards and if you are a runner or have tight hips/back/neck etc. this could be a life changer 🙂

I am guilty of not stretching or barely stretching after most of my workouts, so yoga fits perfectly into my routine. It lengthens and elongates the body while making you feel all nice and relaxed. I have VERY tight hip flexors and I find I hate my life when the instructor starts the pigeon or other hip openers, but I am so thankful after.

Ok…so here we go…

Types of Yoga:

yogatypesI am a big fan of Moksha Yoga studios which they have all over Ontario because of a few reasons:

1. They play music
2. They don’t take it too seriously and make the classes fun
3. They mix it up with different poses every class
4. They often mix in some pilates, push ups, sit ups, etc.

But, you can make your own choices on what you like as you experiment with different studios!

Now…the benefits:
