Why is there no hot yoga on Saturday nights?

yogaI was planning my weekend exercise and I generally like to do hard things in the morning and gentle things at night. So usually that’s run/bike or Aikido in the morning and hot yoga at night. But my scheduling runs into a problem on Saturday. There’s no hot yoga at my local studio on Saturday night.

Why not?

Oh right. That’s because the clientele are mostly in their 20s and have social lives on Saturday night.

My guess is that Yoga Girl instructor is out dancing at clubs. (Well, at least that’s what I imagine twentysomethings are doing. Why? Because it’s what twenty year old me was doing and what I miss about being that age.)

I think that if yoga studios started a Saturday night class (HINT! HINT!) they’d find they have an older clientele. Someone might prefer that. I mean, besides me.

I like teaching early morning university classes for that same sort of reason. They draw a different crowd. Generally speaking smart, motivated students take morning classes. They’re keen on the subject. They’re not there just because it’s a good time of day.

So, Saturday night yoga should be a thing! Make it early enough, 8 pm?, and you can even go out dancing after. Not me. I’ll be at home curled up in bed with a book.

Actually, I think I’d go out dancing if there were early dancing and no alcohol bars. That’s my kind of fun. I also like bands that start before 9 pm and end before midnight.

How about you? When do you like to do yoga? Morning or night? Weekends or weekdays?

    I would totally go to an early no booze dance club. OMG that would be perfection lol. One of the most fun dance parties I had was in the middle of the day at a yoga retreat.

    I always do yoga at night. But that is because I am so not a morning person, however, having said that, I would probably be better off doing yoga in the morning. I think it would start off my day on a good note 🙂

    More than three hours of dancing is pretty great endurance.
    Previewing the balboa dancing coming this weekend to Toronto Toss-Out.

  6. Yoga in the evening please….had classes a few years ago and I found that evening yoga melted away the stress of the day and left me relaxed but with a quiet energy, now all I want to do is sleep after my evening meal..:( I exercise during the day but for me yoga in the evening is the best. https://livinghealthy5407.wordpress.com/2016/03/04/exercise-tips-to-eradicate-thunder-thighs/
