Day 28 + HotYoga

Day 28, Class 28

I felt really strong during the standing series... and then was wiped out for the floor postures. And it was super humid in the room. And it was the one instructor I haven't grown to appreciate over the past 28 days. I still don't appreciate her style.


and this instructor apparently has a thing for good ol' HotYoga. (note: if you haven't read previous posts, HotYoga is my former coworker who our other coworkers nicknamed HotYoga.) He got 4 or 5 compliments on his postures during class. He's not bad at the yoga by any means, but he did not deserve that many compliments in a fairly crowded class. Seems like this instructor likes Mr. HotYoga.
I was telling this story to another former coworker tonight and his response was, "But his name is HOTYOGA - of course he's going to get compliments!" Uh, right - his WORK nickname is HotYoga and he was given that nickname by someone nicknamed TempGuy. It means nothing in the "real world" except that it can be a talking point in one of my Bikram blog posts.

I'd bet the teacher was Penni. She likes complimenting people.
Am I right?

If I could respond to you privately, I would. Here in public, all I am willing to say is that I can neither confirm nor deny your suspicion. :)

i remember after class one time, someone complained "all i kept hearing was 'good, mckinley" after each pose. what about a good alex?" the teacher looked at him and said, "if you'd done a good job, i would have said good alex" and then started laughing because she's one of the funniest people ever. anyway, that class was prolly overboard with how many compliments i got, but, yeah, sometimes it happens.

after class once, my bikram "idol"/friend said to our teacher, "you said good him, good her, never once you say good sherry. so after every pose i say in my head 'good sherry.'

it's safe to say that we have a pretty good relationship with most of our teachers.
