Bikram 4 and 5
I thought that class 4 was my Bikram breakthrough. I participated just about 99% of the class, and I didn’t feel like I was going to throw up or pass out. I was so excited. There was even maybe a little draft in the room 🙂 It was awesome. I left happy and refreshed.
Then there was class last night — and just barely made it through. I didn’t leave because I knew the end game (meditation) would be all messed up if I did but man that class was tough. I was dizzy and EXHAUSTED. At one point I even wanted to cry!
It was during Salabhasana – Locust Pose that I thought I would cry. My hands just don’t want to turn the way they are supposed to in that one and and they hurt and it is the 17th pose and I was so tired. I didn’t give up though.
I even had a dream last night about being locked in a hot room and not being able to get out. This class might be easier for me if I wasn’t so claustrophobic. The idea that I can’t leave messes with me.
