About a two years ago my sister introduced me to vinyasa yoga when she came home for Thanksgiving.  As an avid runner, my first reaction was "there is no way I will be able to sit through this," but, as much as it pained me to admit she was right, I really enjoyed it and felt sore like I hadn't in years.  A friend of mine suggested, a couple months later, that we get a Groupon for hot vinyasa yoga and do it together (the first day I pretty much laid on my mat for more than half of the class it was so hard).  I was hooked and integrated yoga into my running regime, but never thought of it as my main workout.  After injuring my ankle pretty badly after the St. Louis Half Marathon, I had no choice but to stop running for about 8 months.  During that time, hot vinyasa yoga was just about the only exercise I was doing (I threw in a couple Barre classes).  I thought I would get extremely out of shape, instead, I felt stronger than ever.  I came out of class feeling refreshed and rejuvenated with a second wind to get my study on after a long day of classes.  Most importantly, I loved going to class, the atmosphere was uncompetitive and I never felt pushed into doing something I was not comfortable with.  I have recently started picking up running again, but the months before my wedding I will be relying on yoga to keep me sane and keep me fit!
