Happy Saturday! I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend thus far.

Saturdays are my favorite day because it is the one day during the week that I can really take the time to do something for me. So often, life seems to be go, go, go when all you want is to slow, slow, slow.

This morning, a newer to Atlanta yoga studio, Dancing Dogs Yoga, hosted an open house with free (FREE!) hot yoga classes. I have never practiced hot yoga, but have been wanting to for quite some time, so I signed up for the 8am class.

You guys, why have I not known how AMAZING hot yoga is?! The hour flew by, and although I was rocking some hard-core sweat (more than I do at Crossfit, mind you), I felt incredibly cool, calm, collected, and challenged. I fully plan to incorporate a hot yoga session into my schedule at least monthly. The one thing I don’t love about boutique/studio fitness companies is the price. I get it, really I do, but my paycheck does not! So I have to limit my extra classes for the time being. If money was no issue, I’d be in at least once a week!

If you are in Atlanta or Savannah, definitely check out Dancing Dogs! They will not disappoint, and they accept you where you are in your yoga journey. My husband has never practiced yoga, and he still really enjoyed class and also got a great experience and appreciation for yoga.

What do you like to do for yourself? Let me know in the comments! I find that I like to strike the balance of doing something active (whether it be hiking, walking, running, spinning, or yoga) on Saturdays and taking a soak/bath on Sunday nights.
