First, I want to let you know I did survive the 60 day bikram yoga challenge. It got a bit hairy toward the end because I had a cold for ten days. I toughed out most of the sick days–one class I literally felt so bad I slept the whole class through. I had to take a couple days off to recuperate, so there were a couple of double classes to squeeze in at the end. It was pretty awesome to finish. I felt lucky that I was able to find a 60-day space in my life, somehow, for this to happen. The benefits are kind of intangible. I am slightly better at yoga. I may or may not have added a few months to my life? Hard to say. I did get a free massage and facial at the spa next door and that was really nice.
I’m glad I chose to do it when I did because a family emergency made March Very Complicated. Everything is fine, but it simply would not have worked to do yoga every day. And from that I would say the lesson is whatever you want to do, jump in with both feet and go for it, because there’s really no telling what will happen or change in the future.
Speaking of change! I’m working on transitioning this blog to a more science focused space. I’ve been wanting to do that for quite some time, and as per above realized that there’s no time like the present. Watch this space!
