Fitness: My 30 Day Bikram Yoga Challenge – Week 3

{Little yogi in training — though it looks like she could teach me a thing or two}

Today is the third week of my Bikram challenge. You can read about week 1 here and week 2 here. I would like to tell you that it gets easier, but it hasn’t so far. Sure, I can do some poses that I could not do in week 1, but I find that each class is different because there are so many factors to consider.

Such as, what was I doing right before class? How did I feel? Was I rushing from work to get to class? Did I have to do something right after class? What was going on with me that particular day? What did I have to get done soon?

But, that is all part of the challenge of yoga. It is not just about getting my postures right, but also getting my mind right. And, I find the latter is the more difficult of the two. The positive benefits of my practice have been better sleep and more confidence. Going into it, I was not sure what to expect of myself. Physically, I did not feel ready, but are we ever fully ready for anything? I am definitely glad I’ve taken it on, despite the often times challenging time constraints. Namaste.

    1. Dorkschops – Thanks! That’s my niece (also my mini-me:) I should have guessed you would be into yoga! I’ve read through lots of your posts and am so impressed that you are so interested in health at such a young age and so committed to it by drinking water, eating salads, and such. I hope you write more about it on your blog. Would love to read about your journey:)

      1. You’re welcome! Aw, she really is such a cutie! 😀 Thank you so much! I never would’ve thought I’d end up being so committed to health after being overweight for a large portion of my life! I really do plan on posting more about health and things though and I’m so glad you’re looking forward to them! 🙂
