By Caroline and Jon
Note: We often attend classes together, but from listening to our post-workout conversations, you would hardly know it. We decided that it would be fun to give our readers a “fly on the wall” view of how That Class Couple sweats together. Caroline’s thoughts are bolded; Jon’s are italicized.
“Yeah, I would LOVE to try yoga!” I wish I had a tape recorder for that one. The best seven words that came out of Jon’s mouth this past week. I’m a huge hot yoga fan (well, really, just like the heat in general- I could sleep in 100 degrees with no problem), however Jon’s one rule was this trial yoga class could not be heated. Fine, I’ll take it. After doing research to find the perfect beginners class that is easy enough so that he wouldn’t be bored out of his mind, but challenging enough that he’d break a sweat and consider incorporating yoga into his usual routine, and interesting enough so he’d be maybe hooked, I decided we’d go to the Live Music Flow at Yoga Vida NYC.
I said that? Oops. Must have been the wine. Anyway, I’ve been intrigued by yoga for a while now–my inflexible self needs to be whipped into shape–so when Caroline reminded me that these words came out of my mouth, I didn’t argue…too much. It’s not that I didn’t want to try yoga, it’s more that yoga to me was this intimidating thing that was only accessible to those in The Club. Caroline reassured me that I would love it, but she said that once about shopping at Sephora, so you’ll excuse me for being a bit skeptical.
