(2) The Bikram Challenge

Last Christmas, I decided to take a 3-month sabbatycal from my regular stressful job and enroll Bikram’s annual intensive yoga training.

For 9-weeks, I will be in Acapulco in a 4-star resort near the beach practicing Bikram Yoga with 300 people from all over the world. (It doesn’t sound like a big challenge does it?)


However, it is a real challenge:

 (1) The schedule is packed with classes from 9am to 10:30pm Monday through Saturday

(2) Everyday, we will have 5 hours of Bikram Yoga in a room heated to 110F

(3) In addition, daily classes on anatomy, posture clinic and dialogue learning that will drastically reduced my siesta time

(4) Finally, the training is led by Bikram Choudhury himself, the founder of the Bikram Yoga style and a man whose guiding principle is: “The ONLY way is the right way, and the right way is ALWAYS the hard way”

 All the people I have met that have done this training before told me that this was the toughest time they have ever had in their lives. So either they are all sissies or I am going to suffer a little…. (to be continued…)

  4. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague
    who had been conducting a little homework on this. And
    he in fact bought me dinner simply because I found it for him.
    .. lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!

    Hi there! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website such as yours take
    a massive amount work? I am brand new to operating a blog however
    I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

  6. Wow, fantastic blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?

    you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your website is magnificent, let alone the content!
