July 7, 2007 – Discomfort & Profuse Sweating

Beginning the Warrior Pose

Saturday, 8:00AM
Bikram Yoga – 90 minutes.

This was my first Bikram Yoga class.  Compared to my usual workouts, the yoga poses are interminable and on the margins of painful.   The room is sauna-like and predictably begins to stink  after about an hour.   If you do it — plan to be challenged – physically and mentally.   This is a combination of balance, coordination, extreme stretching, strength, impulse control and meditation.    The poses target the limits of your joints and sort of act like a massage on the muscles.
