bikram yoga

Since I no longer have a gym membership for when I’m home-home, I decided to buy a Groupon for 10 Bikram Yoga classes to use while I was back for winter break. It expires in April, which essentially means that I need to use them all this break (I have 9 days). Game on, my friends!

This was basically the second yoga class I’ve ever taken. The first was during “try before you buy” week at Davis and although I didn’t find it particularly challenging while I was in the actual class, I woke up the next morning and could barely move because my muscles were so sore.

Today was my first class, so I guess we’ll see how I feel tomorrow (I’m going to the 5 a.m. class. And perhaps the 4 p.m. class as well. haha.). It wasn’t as terrifyingly challenging as the reviews made it out to be, and I really liked it! I could actually do all the postures except for the situp (…yeah, don’t judge me). The room was heated to 105 degrees with 60% humidity, and since I just came back from the land of the cold, I actually didn’t mind the heat too much. I will say that I haven’t sweated this much since the last time I spent 2 weeks out of a summer in China (which was basically like walking through waves of sweat) though, and I think I could definitely stand to improve on a lot of the postures, but that’s what the next 9 classes (if I manage to stuff them all in) are for. :D

In other news, I had dim sum with my family today, browsed through a couple Asian supermarkets, and got to see several of my closest friends again (we got tea and went to a sushi buffet, where I basically ate 5 orders of rolls–since each order of just 1 roll is ~$11, I’d like to think I definitely ate my money’s worth). Currently attempting to plan out the rest of my week and maximize my time spent with family/friends, but it is proving to be somewhat difficult. x_x Definitely gonna do my best though, since this isn’t happening again until June. ._.
