    Nut butter crusted sweet potatoes sound amazing! I’m excited to hear what you think of the 40 day yoga pass.

    I’ve heard great things from everyone who has done hot yoga so after my move, I want to find a studio and try it out.

    Clearly the possibilities are endless when it comes to nut butter! Bring on more combos! I need to try the sweet potatoes asap.

    I love the idea of nut butter crusted ANYTHING! I have half a sweet potato hanging out in my fridge and might give this a shot later. How experienced with yoga were you before jumping into hot yoga? It seems like it’s so intense that I get a little bit intimidated by it being a beginner.

      I am such a yoga novice! I have been practicing on and off for about a year, but nothing serious or very regular before my first Hot Yoga class. My sister had really never taken a real yoga class at all before and fell in love with her first class at the hot yoga studio. I think hot yoga is definitely something beginners should not be afraid of.

    I need to try hot yoga. I need to see if there is a special around here so that I can give it a try.

    Those sweet potatoes look awesome!

    I just recently got into normal yoga, so I might wait on the hot yoga until I feel a bit more comfortable. But it sounds like it would be really relaxing!

    Yoga is so addictive. If you think you’re hooked now, you’ll get even more hooked the more you do!

    I love hot yoga – Bikram especially – pretty seriously addicted, which means major budgeting in every other aspect of my life….the joys of working with grassroots non-profits! Enjoy!

    I love almond butter with a sweet potato so I can only IMAGINE how good that must be!! How much nut butter did you use and how long did you cook them?

    I’m glad you’re enjoying hot yoga! I want to like it. I went once (it’s not offered in my town, so I had to wait until I was on vacation), and it was rough. I know that at the beginning, they say you’ll feel weird, but I couldn’t tell the difference between OK-weird and bad-weird, so I kind of backed off. Do you have any suggestions for preparing? I know hydrating beforehand is a must. Do you think that you being super fit helped you acclimate?

      I would suggest drinking LOTS of water before hand! I know you’ve heard it before, but being hydrated is the key to knocking that ‘weird’ feeling. πŸ™‚

      I’ve discovered at my studio people of all shapes and sizes practice hot yoga regularly, so I wouldn’t say being ‘super fit’ has anything to adjusting. Just flow at your own pace and do what your body can do. Listen to the instructor to guide you. πŸ™‚

    I would love to try hot yoga, I adore power yoga, so I’m sure I would like this too. Although, I’m not so sure my body could handle it :))
    yummy, merci chocolate!

    Pigeon pose has been saving my life during my marathon training! My IT bands are so sad and pigeon makes them very happy.

    Hey Meghann

    Just a question – I should probably know the answer to – are you a vegetarian? I am considering becoming a veggie (or trying to) and if so, wondering when you made the transition?

    Thanks

      I am not a vegetarian, nor do I have plans to become one anytime soon. I love sampling, tasting, and experiencing all types of food way too much to want to give meat up.

    I love there MercΓ­- Bars too…. they are so yummy…..
    And I like Hot Yoga…. I did some nice Hot-Flow-Yoga when I was in Thailand and I also tried Bikram here at Vienna… liked the Flow much more because they donΒ΄t vary much at the Bikram- classes and I like variation

    what a light dinner!! I would STILL be starving after that tri this weekend!! And I’ve seen some bloggers “nut butter crust” a ton of stuff!! Can’t wait to try it with sweet potatoes!

      I wouldn’t call that a light dinner. πŸ™‚ A whole sweet potato, 3 tablespoons of peanut butter, olive oil, green beans?!? I would call that a very filling meal! πŸ™‚

    Hot yoga IS addictive! I’ve been to 4 classes this week, but I don’t have a 40-day pass. I have to pay for every individual class! (It’s worth it, in my opinion.)

    I’m glad to hear the sweet potato fries were a success! I’ve been thinking about trying that particular combo:-).

    I totally hear you on pidgeon. I had an instructor come over and try to get the bent part of my leg inline with my knee and I almost cried right there. My legs always feel so much better though afterwards πŸ™‚ Glad to hear you are enjoying the baptiste style so much. i love it. i just wish Vermont had a studio.

    Ah pigeon pose, I’ve become an expert on that one since being in physical therapy.

    I have recently become obsessed with hot yoga and think it is definitely improving my running. I have been going for about once a week for the last month & it is an amazing workout and experience. Good luck and enjoy your time there…I’m sure you will end up loving it.

    I recently put a post on my new blog about hot yoga. Please check it out if you have time. Thanks!
