I went to hot yoga tonight. I haven't been in a few weeks, but I've been doing it off and on for a few years now. Never has there been an issue.
Tonight, though, I didn't make it 20 minutes into the class. The deep, fast breathing, the "vibrating" sensation in my hands--ah yes, I knew the signs. It has been a couple decades, probably, since I've had to deal with heat exhaustion, but I knew exactly what was going on in that yoga class. The sensations were so familiar, if so distant in time.
I got out of there with a quickness, and it took quite some time and lots of cold water to feel anywhere near normal. I even called some folks for a ride home, just in case.
It's a horrible feeling. And now that I'm home I have to study for my final exam!
