Happy Anniversary to Me!!

8 Jul


Today is my one year anniversary at my local Bikram studio! While I haven’t gone as consistently as I would like – in fact, after my first month trial it took me another month to suck it up and sign up for a full year – I have seen improvement. I can *almost* get my leg up in Standing Head to Knee pose!

And, Triangle Pose? This is the apex of the series — after this, everything slows down…and you really are happy about that!!

My big Bikram nemesis these days though is the deceptively simple looking Awkward Pose. I am not known for my balance and that’s what this one is all about!!

So, while I’ve improved there’s still room for more improvement – in Bikram it’s all about making the effort to see the results. As long as you’re trying correctly you’re doing it right!

I’ve set a pretty big goal for the rest of my year long practice (which ends on Sept 18) and am looking forward to getting even better in another year!

And on this Monday morning take a small moment to just be quiet and breathe. Deep and slow. It’s a perfect way to start your day!!
