Scent of Bikram

Day 6, Class 6

Stood in a different place in the yoga room today and it was hot hot hot. I sat out a few postures. During bow, the instructor grabbed on to my legs and pulled them up. It's not the first time he's done it but every time it happens I'm thinking to myself, "Do you really want to be grabbing my sweaty legs? Do you?" And apparently he does! I admire his dedication to the yoga!
My calves cramped during rabbit which freaked me out a bit. It's been warm here the past few days and I walked over to a friend's house before yoga (approx. 3 miles round trip) and I probably wasn't hydrated enough. Need to focus on consuming fluids!


Let me preface this by saying that I don't normally have an issue with my laundry. I normally wash things with good ol' Tide and life is good. However after washing and drying my yoga stuff a few days ago, I detected a slight hint of eau de Bikram especially in my Yogitoes towel. My yoga studio has a bit of a funk problem - it is not the freshest smelling place in the world. So I turned to my good friend Google to see what it could tell me about the best laundry detergent for funky Bikram clothes. And the answer is... Mrs. Meyers Clean Day Laundry Detergent. A couple of blogs and message boards mentioned it so I was willing to give it a try. I bought a bottle in the Lavendar scent because it was on sale (50% off) at Pharmaca. I just took my Yogitoes out of the dryer and there is no hint of Bikram funk on it at all. Very impressive!
