BIKRAM CHALLENGE – DAY 2

Day 2: Complete.

Image

Seems Easy Enough!

This image is the last thing I see while filling up my water bottle before entering Bikram’s torcher chamber of tough love.  Let me tell you, this little reminder sign is more than a bit misleading!  Yeah sure, stay in there for 90 minutes!  Check – no problem.  Try your best to do the postures correctly!  Easy Peezy.  Upon reading this, a first timer might just start pondering what type of exercise they should do after class in order to get a full body workout.   Thankfully I’m 100% indoctrinated and not tempted by this Siren’s song…instead I am literally trying to hit the fast forward button on my body’s TiVo machine exactly 90 minutes so I can get all the yoga benefit and none of the pain.  Funny, this damn thing never works…I’m calling Direct TV.

In Greek mythology, the Sirens were dangerous creatures, who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music to shipwreck on their island

With all this said, Day 2 felt a little easier than pretty much any class I’ve taken so far.  I think it was a combination of a few things:  1) not being able to go “all out” in some postures due to my hamstring issues (see prior post)  2) sitting on the “cooler” side of the room  3) is it possible that my body is finally starting to adjust to hot yoga?! (one can hope!)  Maybe day 3 will give me some indication if #3 is for real or just a fluke.
