I was an overworked, overanxious, overweight almost 50 year old who found the strength to return to Bikram after a one year hiatus. I have a very hard day job resuscitating other people’s infants. My job requires me to be virtually perfect. No mistakes. Errors in my line of work can lead to death, the death of a baby.
Consistent Bikram Yoga practice has led to complete 100 percent alleviation of my anxiety, an 18 pound weight loss and absolute happiness! I’ve found my little piece of heaven on earth. Maybe you will, too. Come to class and just breathe. As the amazing rotation of teachers will tell you, just breathe. Everything else is optional!
Following a very serious leg injury requiring three operations and years of physical therapy, I still needed something to help both my body and my mind to heal. The changes have been amazing and the work, while hard, somehow keeps drawing me back to the hot room. I used to describe my trying to get into bow pose as an octopus having a seizure. Having recently seen a picture of myself in bow, I keep wondering who exactly that person is. After six years I continually find myself breaking new ground in a pose, most recently getting into standing head to knee with each leg. I wonder what the next six years will bring.
I had herniated disc surgery about 2 years ago which stopped me from being active and playing sports, and my back had gotten even tighter and more painful after a long flight earlier this year. During my first class, I felt all the poses were so hard for me and I felt a bit dizzy with the heat, but I stayed in and kept drinking water. When the class was over, I felt great and very refreshed, just like when I used to play sports. I’ve been practicing a little over 6 months now, and I feel I am getting my life back. I can do all the things that I once gave up, such as jogging, biking, playing tennis, paddle boarding and gardening. I am so happy to do these activities again!
