Yes, I did it! I went back to Bikram this morning for my third try and I have to say, it was SO much better than the first two! You may remember my experience on Monday was fairly disastrous, well, this one was completely different. I only sat out one full pose and the first set of another. Even though I was sweating buckets, I decided to 'embrace the sweat' and go with the flow! I breathed deeply and just focused on the pose at hand. I was a bit apprehensive before class, worried that I wouldn't make it through, but I told myself that if I could make it through a marathon with a broken foot, I could make it through a yoga class! And I did!!
I definitely think these changes helped me get through the class and finish strong and feeling refreshed! Yoga tip: when finished with class, fold your mat in half and then roll it up. This way you don't get the floor dirtiness on the side of the mat that you use.
After class I spoke with a few other students and one suggested having an all-greens juice because just after Bikram yoga, your body is able to absorb all the nutrients from the kale and spinach more easily. So, off I went to give it a try. I had a few sips as I left the health food store, but decided I'd like it better cold. I also decided to add just a tiny bit of Maca Powder.
