Hot Yoga First-Timer

Last night was my first hot yoga class.  I signed up for a 3 month membership which allows for 3 classes a week at yoga studio nearby.  I knew it’d be difficult for a few reasons.  Flexibility is not my expertise.  I cannot even touch my toes.  My “workouts” have fallen to the way side,
