Before I knew it, I signed myself up for a 10-days Bikram Yoga trial at Harbour Front Centre. It was the start of my motivated journey.
Here is the studio where I go for classes diligently for the next 10 days. It was a whole new environment and new instructors. There are 26 poses in Bikram in total, and reading Bikram Yoga Vancouver's site the night before made understanding these postures so much better. Day 1 was a lot of trying, locking of knees and pulling of my feet. It was where practice came in.
The 10 days I spent with my mind and body in the hot room was amazing. I had good and bad days; days when I feel lethargic, tired and periodic hunger pangs that attacked. But there were days that I felt strong and free. I came across reading "10 Things I Hate About Bikram Yoga" off the net and I thought it hit the nail on the spot. It was the addiction, the sweat, the heat, the posture and how it never ends. It was a 90 minute session that took my mind off school, work and everything else. It was a session of me.
It was truly rewarding and amazing. I loved it, and I'm willing to share. Any other new yogis out there? :)
