today my dear, sweet friend lela and i got up at 6 am to go to pittsburgh, pa to go to a bikram yoga class. lela had done bikram and knew what to expect. i did not...
well, i KNEW what to expect. i read up on bikram yoga and knew that it was going to be HOT but i didn't realize it would be THAT HOT!! unfortunately i don't deal well with heat. and temperatures that go from 105-110 degrees is a little too hot for me :(
i regret to say that i didn't make it through the full hour and a half but i did make it through an hour and 10 minutes. at that point i had pushed my boundaries but i had to respect my limit and i knew that i was at my limit. just laying there in the heat didn't seem to help too much at which point i apologized and left the room (before i passed out). i wish i could have made it through the whole class and maybe one day i will.
as much as the heat was torture for me, i am stubborn and will therefore probably try bikram again at another time.
