Brutal Bikram Yoga

Things got pretty heated last night. I’m talking sweat on sweat. Slippery salty surrendered sweat.

I signed up for another Bikram yoga class with a few girlfriends last night and after giving this style several tries, I’m honestly not a fan. Besides the heat, I don’t like the longer pose holds and repetition. Also the teacher tends to sound like a car sales man. Hold the pose and breathe, deeper, breathe deeper, harder, go longer, stronger…

Hoy vey. While I may have failed to reap the benefits of the class, I was not short on emotions!

Hot yoga? Sure, I love summer weather.

I’m a yogi, I can do anything.

Arriving at class, this heat isn’t so bad laying down in savasana.

Class starts and it’s time to get moving. I’m starting to feel a little discomfort.

I’m not sure I was supposed to bend that far.

My foot is too slippery to grab. I’m sweltering.

How do people take this class regularly? I’m so bored.

I had no idea it was possible to sweat THIS much. Where’s my zen??
