You might have done Yoga, but you haven’t done Hot Pod Yoga.
Imagine a warm, darkened, calmly lit space with soothing tranquil music neutralizing your every thought and yoga poses to stretch out your tired muscles.
I’ve tried Yoga a few times, and I’ve very much enjoyed it. But this experience was something else. There was something about the warmth, and light, and just the general vibe that made the whole experience a lot more relaxing.
Our Yoga teacher was lovely, she took us through the basic poses of a style of yoga known as 'Vinyasa', even beginners would have felt comfortable. And if you weren’t comfortable, you could just slow down or we were offered alternative easier ways to do a similar pose. Vinyasa can be translated as ‘arranging something in a special way’, and that it was. Our bodies were ‘arranged’ as we glided through the routines. In the huge inflatable pod, we had a 45-minute class in 37-degree heat working through continuous movements. Now if that doesn’t relax your muscles and ease you into those difficult yoga poses, I don’t know what will.
The event was sponsored by The Big Bottle Co, allowing you to control your daily intake of water. The bottle is 2.2L and BPA free. So I’m a big fan of BPA free bottles because I read once that the plastic in other bottles could be quite bad for you, so this was a win in itself. I always carry a water bottle with me, but I often struggle to drink enough water per day, and I’m very aware of that. With this bottle, although you can’t pop it in your bag, you can pop it on your desk, get yourself a glass and just keep pouring and keep sipping as you go about your day. Since the event I have done this every day, some days when I’m out and about I’ll struggle to drink it all, and I’m still yet to have a day where I finish it all, but I always get very close, and I’ll get there! But yes, it’s come with me almost everywhere so far.
It was also very handy to have it to sip on in our class. Whenever I exercise, like anybody, I always drink a tonne of water, so this was really helpful.
What a great invite to receive, Hot Pod Yoga along with my trusty new friend The Big Bottle. Hot Pod even gave us a free month’s membership which I am so excited to use! Afterwards we popped into a restaurant called ‘Farmacy’ which is any vegan persons dream! I would definitely recommend.
