It Only Makes You Stronger…Posted: November 17, 2011
Phew! Where to begin…
This week (and last week for that matter), have been quite busy training-wise. I said in a previous post that I thought it was time to up the ante at gym and let me tell you…its left me shattered- but in the best way possible! So far Pippa and myself have been to 3 tough sessions at Transfit
In one of them we basically did an hour (no recovery!) of bodyweight exercises mixed with cardio. To say that things got dark for me during that hour would be an understatement. But don’t worry I won’t afflict you with the gory details.
Jeannie D’s trainer actually gave us a similar workout to what he puts her through before she has a big shoot! Ohmygodohmygodohmygod….. Now I know why she looks so phenomenal!
The point of this post actually was to talk about yoga. Yes.
I signed up (together with my friend Vanessa) for a month of unlimited classes at Jai Yoga studio. What a great place! I’m so glad I found it. Everything inside is white (Like, everything!). There’s just the most amazing calm, serene atmosphere that I find soothing and relaxing.
They offer mostly hot yoga- Bikram and hot Vinyasa, which we both luuuuurve! but they also do non-heated Ashtanga classes as well as Yoga Nidra which is like really deep meditation (I went to a Nidra class last night and almost fell asleep it was so calming).
So in between gyming in the mornings before 7am, I’m trying to cram as many yoga classes into the month as I can. I’ve been to 3 so far this week and hoping to fit in another 3 depending on how my arms feel because right now they feel like absolute jelly from push-ups and chaturanga’s.
My reasoning though is that if it doesn’t kill you… it only makes you ?
