Yoga class has to end early because of overactive heater

She tried to turn off the heater with the thermostat, but it still continued to run

Most of my friends and I are active and fit. We enjoy lots of outdoor activities like hiking, running, kayaking, and hang gliding. A few of my friends and I love to attend a yoga class 2 times each week. I think yoga is great because it helps to focus the mind and the body at the same time. A lot of people think that yoga is for nerds and hippies, but my friends and I are very fit and strong guys and we still enjoy being flexible. Last Tuesday was our regularly scheduled yoga class and everyone met in the room. Our fitness Guru Jackie was leading us through a series of breathing techniques. The heater kicked on and everyone heard the noise. It seems strange, but no one said anything out loud. After 10 or 15 minutes, the heater continues to spit out a steady flow of warm air. The temperature inside of the room continues to get warmer and warmer. The heater should have turned off at some point, but something wasn’t working properly. About halfway through the class, Guru Jackie decided to interrupt our session to look at the thermostat in the office. It was 87° in the room. She tried to turn off the heater with the thermostat, but it still continued to run. We finally decided to end class early so Guru Jackie could contact the maintenance staff and the building manager. Thankfully the problem was fixed in time for our class on Thursday. It’s cold outside with snow and ice, but I still didn’t want to deal with an overactive heater.
