I love Mondays. That’s probably slightly weird to say. But I truly love my Mondays.
My alarm goes off at 5:10 am and I’m out the door at 5:30 with my cold brew in hand to teach a 6 am Glider Yoga class at OmPower and then I typically stick around and take the 7am Power Yoga class. But this morning the usual 7am instructor was out sick so I taught class for her. After two amazing hours of yoga with the beautiful OMpower community, I was off to try out Uforia Studios.
Uforia is an AWESOME boutique fitness studio in downtown Palo Alto that has a variety of cycling, dance, cardio and yoga classes that are all about bringing the fun and energy into every workout. As many of you know, I’m not great about getting on the bike (nor am I great at biking) so I decided to take the Revolutions class (party on a bike!) to get my fix.
I was a little nervous when we were getting our spin shoes – I always freak out about clipping in (so much anxiety…) – but once we were on the bike, I felt immediately comfortable. What impressed me most about Uforia was the smiles and energy in the room. It was a packed class and it was clear to me that every single person in the room truly wanted to be there. It felt like a bike ride with a close family rather than some anonymous spin class. The instructor was dancing, singing, high five’in and feeding the room with her intoxicating energy…not to mention sick beats. 😉 After a good 45 minute ride, my bike and I were completely and totally drenched and I got to give a big sweaty hug to my new friends at Uforia Studios.
The good news for us in San Francisco…..is that Uforia Studios are opening up in San Francisco (on California and Polk) in a sheer matter of weeks. I can’t wait to spin, cycle, groove and move with the Uforia crew a little closer to home.
Of course once we drove back to the city, it was time for a long, hot shower and some carbs. HA.
And the sweat didn’t end there. I still had mountain climbers to complete for the #sweatpink #noexcuses challenge…so I got after it in a big way.
Gonna be so SORE tomorrow.
How was your sweaty Monday y’all?
