I took my first ever hot yoga class this morning and I loved it!!
This morning, Meghann, Kath, Emily, and I took a Hot Power Fusion class a CorePower Yoga. The class was taught in a room heated to 98-100 degrees and featured a combination of holds and flows with hip opening, upper body, and core strengthening moves. The poses weren’t super hard, but the heat definitely made it a challenge. I sweat my ass off!! Holy cow!
This CorePower Yoga location was really nice– modern and upscale!
The yoga room was big and bright with beautiful views of the Chicago skyline.
After yoga class, I rehydrated with a bottle of pomegranate-berry Zico. I wasn’t a fan after my first sip, but halfway through, I decided that I liked it.
Before yoga, I enjoyed breakfast with a bunch of blog buddies at the Corner Bakery Cafe. It was a cute little cafe with lots of yummy options on the menu, but the employees didn’t want me snapping photos. Oops!
For breakfast, I ordered the Swiss Oatmeal, which was served chilled (aka overnight oats). It was made with rolled oats, fresh green apples, bananas, currants, dried cranberries, low-fat yogurt, and skim milk. On the side, it was served with homemade Sweet Crisps. So delicious!
And, of course, I drank an iced coffee with breakfast.
Breakfast blog buddies!
Do you recognize some of these ladies?!?
Off to find lunch! I’m starving!
