So, you go to Hot Yoga class regularly. You know all the teachers. You have a group of yoga class friends. You even have your own "spot" in the room. Despite all of this and the fact that you grab every opportunity to rave about hot yoga to your non-yogi friends, and you're pretty sure that yoga can cure anything (really, anything), you are still not convinced that you have earned the title of Hot Yogi/ni.
Well, here are some more indications, some clues if you will, that might help shed some light:
You practice standing head-to-knee pose while putting your shoes and socks on.
You turn up the heat to do housework.
You’re laundry routine (which is a daily occurrence) includes baking soda and vinegar.
You freak out when you run out of electrolyte supplements.
You spend an uncommon amount of time thinking, perhaps even discussing, your digestion/elimination habits.
When people complain about the heat outside, you find yourself giving them a dirty look.
You do not use body lotion because if you do your Standing Bow Pose will suffer.
When you drink a glass of wine, you think, “Ooh, I’m gonna pay for THAT in yoga class.”
You 80/20 breathe through childbirth.
You tremble (with excitement and/or dread) when you hear the word Camel.
You are already familiar with the 10 Things They Don't Tell You About Hot Yoga.
