Yoga to the People

Today, I started off the day with a session of Hot Bikram Yoga. The room is generally set to 106 degrees and the class consists of 90 minutes worth of stretching, compression and relaxing poses. The heat helps muscles to loosen, allowing for a deeper stretch and release of tension. It is an intense experience but what I love about it is, no matter what is going on in my life, when I am in that room, I am thinking of nothing but the present.

Since getting back to NYC, it seems the pressure is higher than before and its been taking a toll on me. However, I've been striving for balance, eating healthy, and trying to relax, remotivate and rejuvenate myself. Treating myself to hot yoga once a week gives me something to look forward to, something to take me away from the work that threatens to overtake me. The sun is shining today, and I have a new outlook. Namaste.
