If it is mainly your legs try this. Walking up stairs with sore legs would hurt or cause discomfort. So What I do is run up the stairs with knees going high. Walk down the stairs and repeat the same going up. With this expolsive action it seems to work for a few hours and is good enough to get to the next class.

You got to work through it. Trust me it works.

Probably not the healthiest/safest option, but you could try advil to see if it helps relax your muscles a bit.

Rubbing out muscle soreness (deep tissue) and icing or interval heat then ice works effectively. Pain killers will just mask the problem and eventually could make it worse. anti-inflamitories help releive swelling but again can mask the issue at hand.

Do not use icy hot or ben gay or tiger balm in combination w/ heating pad!!! it will eat your skin

My best friends when I started were tiger balm and ibuprofin. I keep them on hand but now rarely use them.

Time, lots of sleep. Those are the only two solid factors. The intial soreness will go away soon. My secret is this arnica cream I got from my doctor. Works wonders.
