Just have to say how happy I am to have found some Bikram blogs I can really relate to. This week, both Hot off the Matt and My Bikram Yoga Life had great posts I really found helpful… related to subjects I’ve discussed here on Halfmooning.
Hot off the Matt wrote about when to go to class and when to stay home when you’re under the weather. I dealt with this a lot in Dec/Jan. More than anything, in my case, I felt tired with no energy, so I probably should have gone to class more, since I couldn’t get anyone sick…but it was very enlightening to hear the good and the bad of going to class when you’re not 100%.
My Bikram Yoga Life also had a great post I read repeatedly on how often to go class, a continued struggle of mine as you may know. For many months I was consistently going 4x a week then after a month or so of being sick, I’ve had a hard time getting back into the routine, averaging only 2-3x a week lately. It’s something, but not as much as I would like.
I found it very interesting that the author only went 1-2x a week for the first year she started. I’m not sure how much progress she made, but then started going more regularly and then almost daily. So amazing! It definitely made me want to aim for going back to 4x a week, but also the perspective to allow myself to live life and understand sometimes things get in the way of yoga, and that’s ok. Life happens!
Anyway, I encourage you to read these terrific articles and more from these 2 great blogs!
