feeling hot

Today I am off to the big St. Louis to take a Bikram Yoga class. I'm very excited about it! The last time I took a Bikram class was years ago in Denver. While I definitely prefer flowing styles of yoga over Bikram, I think it's good to mix it up every once and a while.
If you're wondering what Bikram is, it is a form of yoga (developed by a man named Bikram Choudhury) that is done in a room heated to approximately 105 degrees...yeah, HOT! You sweat just standing there. However, you don't just stand there. You do a sequence of 26 postures two times in a row. The classes are 90 minutes long, and they are all exactly the same. So no matter where you are in the country, if you go to two Bikram classes, they will be alike. If you ever get a chance to try it, definitely do. It's a very challenging, cleansing experience!

Here is your yoga thought for the day:

Do one thing a day that scares you.

That sounds so fun! I am often cold during most yoga classes, and I sometimes think "I wish we could have done this posture, etc" so I'd like knowing exactly what I will be doing.
