Bikram sweet Bikram

Had one of those classes tonight where I just wanted to stay in the yoga room forever. This is both a testament to how good class was and how much I wanted to hide out and avoid the real world! But really, class was good.
This the 3rd class I've attended this week. Not great, but much much better than how much I've been practicing for the rest of 2011. Although I now live much closer to a Bikram studio, this studio has less classes than the studio I used to practice at and they don't work so well with my work schedule... but the exciting news is that the studio is going to be remodeled in April AND they're adding classes. YAY YAY YAY! I look forward to ramping up my practice mid-April once the remodel is complete.

2011 has not been my year of yoga

I've only done a handful of Bikram classes this year. I practiced this morning and it was one of those wretched classes, one of those embarrassing classes. There was a first timer in class who did more poses than me. I felt hot, I felt sweaty, I felt like I was going to pass out, I had a weird twinge in my knee... and I sat out some postures. I can look at this class is a couple of different ways - 1. I'm not meant to do Bikram yoga. 2. I should get back on my mat as soon as possible.
I love the Bikram but I'm not sure it fits into my life right now. We shall see...
