Yoga According to Joe Rogan
Yoga explained better that we could ever do.
While browsing through Instagram last week, we stumbled upon a post by Joe Rogan, created after leaving a hot yoga class. His words completely summarize our feelings toward yoga and we knew we had to share it with you. Here's what he had to say...
"Out of all the exercise I do, yoga is the one where after I'm done, I always think "I gotta do more of this sh*t." 90 minutes of hot yoga does more than workout my body, it purges my mind of stupid thoughts. The brutal intensity of holding difficult poses in 104 degree heat forces you to live in the moment, and the last 20 minutes are a massive struggle to avoid giving in to desperation. After 70 f**king minutes of sweat and strain when you look up at the clock and see there's still 20 minutes to go you've got to put yourself in survival mode to get through. The physical benefits are amazing too. When I do it on a regular basis my body is much more limber and I feel less tension in my back. It strengthens things in a very unique way and maximizes my range of motion and flexibility like nothing else I do. It also feels like it "ties together" all the other sh*t I do. All the different kinds of working out, whether it's kettle bells or martial arts or hill running - they all have their own benefits, but yoga feels like it ties all those benefits together and strengthens all the loose ends. If you've ever thought about trying it out, let this post be your motivation. It's great for you like very few things in this crazy life. "
Joe perfectly describes the feeling that we had when we really decided to commit to yoga and still do after every class to this day. Yes - it is stretching - but it is sooo much more than that. Yoga is the gateway to mental clarity, physical strength and mobility and overall wellness. It truly pushes you to your physical limits and forces you to step up your mental game. If you have been hesitant to try a class, use this as your motivation to. Use Joe as your motivation. We challenge you to step into the studio, try a class ans see what you are truly made of as an athlete and as a human.
