My work schedule has been a bit rough at the day job since I started working 40 hours a week. Since I'm covering for someone who's on maternity leave, I can't really get off early enough to make it to some of the dance classes I really want to take. There have also been those days in the past month where I wanted to do nothing more than fall asleep when I got home. In an effort to fight that off and do something productive, I tried The Trainer's Edge: Long & Lean Yoga with Baron Baptiste on Netflix Instant on Thursday night.
I've dabbled in yoga, but this is the first time I heard the term 'internal heat' in reference to yoga. The instructor talked about generating an internal heat while working through the poses. This is the first time I experienced that internal heat. I needed a 1980's sweatband to keep the perspiration out of my eyes while I was just standing there in a pose. It was intense. I didn't expect to get so hot and sweaty during a yoga workout.
