Why I Turn Down Happy Hour

“I look forward to Vera’s Friday evening’s Happy Hour class so much, that I actually refuse any alcohol-based Friday HH invitations just so I can make it (and that’s saying a lot). Sometimes there’s a live DJ, which of course is a nice touch, but Vera’s music is pretty damn awesome regardless, as is her guidance and encouragement through the poses. Vera starts the class off with a brief talk about the theme for the month. Back in December, I was going through a particularly stressful time and I likened Friday evening’s class to therapy sessions. I recall walking in feeling completely like hell emotionally and walking out a transformed person.”
