I have not posted anything in a HOT second on here (sorry for being MIA). My shnookum pumpkin was in town so I had no times to blog or do anything cause I was busy af.
IFFFFF you’re following me on my instagram (which you should be doing), you’d have seen all the cool stuff we were doing! So I wasn’t really MIA, just having way too much fun. I’ll make a post in a few days of all the things we did (and if I liked the experience), so look for that! I also did a crazy, spontaneous thing you might want hear about :))))))))
Just wanted to do a quick recap of this crazy workout we did the other day, as can probably tell from my title. As you guys already know I am the queen of cardio, but Lauren wanted to do something more yoga centric (crushing my should basically). We went with Y7 studio in the Flatiron district for a hot-yoga vinyasa-flow style workout.
First off let’s talk about these stairs. They look so cool and motivational. There are three set of them and they are STEEP. My ass was wearing some high heeled booties and let just say I tripped a lil bit on the way up and almost slid down them on the way out okay. Great lets move on.
As soon as you walk into the workout room its like candle lit and really warm. Even coming in from the frigid rain, I was like Hmm can they turn the heat down a scootch? We started out by doing some directed breathing, which felt cult-y as most people released their breath like someone who just dropped a full caramel latte on the ground. Then the director? teacher? person said Okay now were gonna start the first flow and turned up the beats.
Immediately, this lil girl is going a mile a minute Downdoglegupbendforwardwarriorposehumblewarriorleftarmbackrightarmliftupcomeupbendofrwardleguplegdown
Shoutout to the super bendy very well-versed girl next to me whom I followed the entire time cause if not I would be stuck in down-dog the whole time. After the first “flow” I said good-bye to my shirt cause the sweat was getting in my eye balls and was very glad for the darkness.
The basis of the workout is 3 “flows:” the first is slow, the second is fast and the last is one you just do whatever you feel like. That sequence repeats 3 times. It lasted the entire hour and I felt like my body was super stretched out and limber. I did legs that morning so it felt amazing to do some stretches while also getting sweaty, which is the point of working out to me.
Overall, I prefer cardio to this because it just feels shorter in a way. I did like it but I’m always more interested in burning my body, less about toning it(maybe I’m backwards who knows I’m not an expert)
