A Bikram Start to the Day

This morning I was both excited and apprehensive about going to a Bikram yoga class.  While I’ve been practicing yoga fairly regularly, I haven’t been to a Bikram class in a long time.  I practiced Bikram yoga for 3 months in early 2011 and I found it very hard; and so needless to say, I was a little nervous!

But, it was great!  I really enjoyed it.  I was able to do, and hold the postures.  My breathing was comfortable and easy, and most importantly, I was able to stay focused.  I’m sure the whole experience was easier for me because I have been doing yoga and I’ve learned to breathe correctly.

I don’t think I’ll practice Bikram yoga on a regular basis, but it was fun and invigorating today and I feel very proud of myself for doing it!


  1. I have always wanted to do yoga but somehow have never done so. Your thoughts about yoga have renewed my interest. Thank you for that. I’ll keep you posted.

  2. I try to go to Bikram once a week. I really do like it but the 90 minutes plus travel time makes it difficult for me.

    • Tammy, I found that it takes even longer when you add in planning a mean a few hours ahead, getting to class early and the continual sweating for a few hours after class! I think that in order to practice Bikram, you have to make it a total lifestyle
