Cancelling my farewell to Bikram Yoga

I’ve been contemplating whether or not to get a personal trainer.  I think part of it is just laziness on my behalf in doing exercise and maybe a part of it is my age.  I can’t just skip one meal to fit into my clothes the next day! I got in touch with one lady and she seems amazing but it’s so expensive. Maybe, one day I’ll get in touch with her again but at the moment I think I’m going to carry on with Bikram yoga and try and work on my diet.

A while ago, I wrote a blog about saying farewell to Bikram yoga. However, I didn’t actually ever stop. My routine of going to early morning Bikram yoga stopped and I think I’ve only been back once to an early morning class. There have been some weeks when I’ve not been able to go at ask but I’ve not actually stopped going altogether.

I go in the day time or in the evening when I can. I try to do at least once a week, twice a week if I can. Out of everything that’s happened to my life since having kids, this is one thing I’ve kept hold of. I used to love watching Eastenders and I’d record it and watch it on catch up because I loved it so much. However, for over a year now, I’ve not watched it. I follow the story line in the news but I’ve not actually watched it now for a long time. I love reading and when I can I still try to read but even that has taken a back burner.

I’m not sure what it is about Bikram yoga, it’s not cheap, it takes up a lot of time, it’s not easy, I can’t even do it all, but for some reason, I’m addicted to going there whenever I get a chance. Obliviously, I do feel better after going. My back feels better. When I go regularly and become careful with what I eat, I do lose weight. I know it’s good for you, which is my stated reason for going but there are lots of other things I could do that would have the same effect.

I’d like to think my life will always have Bikram yoga in it even if I can’t explain why. Maybe I’ll never know my why for going to Bikram yoga apart from I love it but maybe that’s enough, maybe that’s all I need.

Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.Bhagvad Gita
