I am officially hooked on Bikram Yoga. I love the feeling of sweating out on my clothes till no inch is left dry. I love the feeling of my heart thumping until it feels like its going to explode. I love stretching out and feeling the pain of exertion. I love the feeling of anticipation when I can eventually stretch beyond my limits. I even love being nauseaous and pukey, stopping to take deep breaths, and jumping back in. I love the feeling of the cool breeze lightly touching my skin when the windows are finally opened while I am in my corpse pose. I love stepping out of the studio and not feeling tired after an intense 1.5 hour session.
Is it weird when you feel excited about going to yoga class days before? Is is strange when you check out Nike, Puma, Adidas (love the new S/S '07 Stella McCartney Yoga line btw) and the lululemon website for nice yoga outfits (investing in yoga clothes is a commitment to take this seriously!)? Is it crazy when you feel like Bikram Yoga is working for you even if you've only done it twice so far? I could have sworn my legs are slimmer and my friend Carissa swears her eyes are clearer!!!
Anyway, sorry for my bitchfest yesterday. I want to treat you today with something meditative, something that connects mind, body and spirit, something that can calm all our frayed nerves: YOGA CLOTHES and ACCESSORIES!!!
This particular mat is special because its made out of 100% cotton to provide an anti-slip, super absorbant surface for all hot yoga types. According to the website, this is an "Excellent choice for Bikram yoga, yogis that sweat, or yogis looking for an alternative to conventional plastic mats." It can be used by itself, or placed over a regular yoga mat "to obtain a soft absorbent yoga surface".
