    Really small class tonight - only 5 of us. Marzia worked us really hard, making minor corrections on all of us on every pose. This meant the poses were held a bit longer as she went around to each ... read more

      I love it when there are few people in class, easier to concentrate but the long duration on poses will really tick me off especially in that heat! You're one tough Yogini Mel, well done :)

      Hehe! Way to mix it up :) Sad to read of the glute pain though. Hopefully, since there was no pain yesterday, you're making some healing progress with it.

      Our weather has been odd, too. Not with the rain, but 50F temps in July!! You know that's weird for IL. I'm not complaining though! Nice job staying dry & walking for a commute!

      Does a packed class make it more humid and difficult?

      Tracy S. It is hotter with all those bodies in the room but not more difficult. All you need is the space your mat covers...but it is nice to little breathing room. I am familiar with most of the people at the studio so it didn't bother me.
      Hyenapete - It is expensive but it costs money to heat that room. They get you hooked with an introductory offer (30 days for $30) and like a drug addict I keep coming back for more.
