Same heat, different day

Today was Hatha with Bret.

I have to give Bret credit. He was quite apologetic for how hot it got in class today. It was not really his intention. But we found ourselves in a class where the temperature probably bottomed out at 104 degrees, and I'd venture to guess there were parts of the class that were hotter, and parts of the room that were even hotter than what the thermometer said.

It was still a good class, in spite of this. We had lots of opportunities to add little fun things to this one, as has been the case for the last few classes. There was some Vinyasa flow in there, as linking material between different parts of the class.

I'm probably the only one that has a problem with the heat... and I've complained about it so much (though not as a "complaint" to anyone, more as just a whining session to various friends and this blog). I keep waiting for that day where I like the heat, as I lay in my bed, typing this in unpleasant 88 degree nighttime temperatures in my room. I don't know that I'll ever love the heat. Merely, I might continue to tolerate it, and hope that this tolerance is actually building character in a meaningful way, as opposed to just dessicating me.

The balance lately has shifted much more toward Vinyasa than Hatha. It has partly been because of the field trip to Be Luminous. I am not sure if there's something else in there too. My shoulder hasn't been hurting so badly, and I guess I find Vinyasa a little more fun. But maybe I should dial it back closer to 50/50 again just to be on the safe side.
