Day 22: A Musical Suggestion

Tuesday 24th January, 12.30pm class taught by Nicky

It was great to be back today, and made me appreciate it all the more after yesterday, but I'm finding it hard to summon the energy to get all the other things done that I need to do at the moment.  I don't know, I think I do a lot, and maybe it is ENOUGH right now with the challenge (which is almost over, after all).  Maybe I should try to loose this tendency to place unrealistic demands on myself all the time, and then feel like I'm not organised/good enough when I can't get it all done!  Can't I just do Bikram yoga every day for the rest of my life, please?  I would love that.  

Actually, I'm also really enjoying this blog malarkey too; it feels quite nice for it not just to be going on in my head, but to be able to connect with other people about it too.  In fact, I really enjoy seeing familiar friendly people when I walk into the studio, and it seems there are quite a few people doing the 30 day challenge, or at least practising quite often at the moment, which makes for a really happy, supportive atmosphere.

And finally, when I was looking up Bikram on iTunes yesterday, I discovered that there are also other recordings to Bikram's name, such as this very lovely one.  I wonder why our teachers never sing to us from the Bikram back catalogue?  It'd be nice, wouldn't it, to just spur us on a little bit, and I'm sure would not feel awkward in any way at all.  "I woke up in the morning" seems perfect for early class, and I look forward to it on Friday.

  1. At teacher training Bikram very often sings after class or plays one of his tunes in final savasana. Last Fall his favourite was 'I Feel Lonely.' It's definitely a have to be there moment! Also adds to the torture, you can't leave the room till the song ends!!!! Good luck with the rest of your challenge :-)

  2. Kat, thanks for sharing that - that is completely hilarious!
