Bikram Yoga 60-Day Challenge - Day 43 and 44

Saturday 8:00 am
A good class but I didn’t receive any corrections, adjustments nor did I notice major improvements. However, I did feel energized and happy after class though so I went for a 5 mile family run to celebrate. Soon after that, my hamstrings started killing me :(

Sunday 8:00 am
Beautiful Sunday. Good class, similar to the one yesterday. Thankfully I wasn’t sore when I woke up this morning.

The highlight of the day was and still is my latest acquisition, some Amar Chitra Katha comics I received from a friend who is visiting from Bangalore, including the first book of Mahabharata. I am very excited about this. I watched Mahabharata a while back (love Indian movies) and I have the first book as well but I never have read it. This is a less dense version since it’s made for kids. I’ll be reading this to my daughter at night time now.

I love all things Indian (food, music, movies, languages, etc..). I can’t remember how far back my love affair for India goes, but I have the fondest memories of my 10-day trip to India 2 years ago. I attended one of my best friend’s wedding, a small one (just 5000 people) and a short one too (9 days long). LOL. This was probably one of the best experiences of my life.

From several bloggers, I have read that Bikram loves to keep everyone up ‘til late hours during teacher training to watch his Indian movies and chat. I can’t wait to do this one day. This would be the easiest part for me, even if it means sleeping for only few hours.


  1. mmmmm...Indian food. We have a yummy place here called samosa factory that makes very good Indian food. I'm glad to hear you had a good class, and the fact that you ran five miles to celebrate had me falling out of my chair. Impressive!

  2. LOL. BY and running go very well together. I highly recommend it ;) I also heard about the Samosa factory from someone is going through TT now. I think he mentioned that the owners are also BY students. That's awesome. I need to check it out next year. I hope Bikram keeps the TT in Las Vegas since it's not that far from here ( 5 hour drive maybe?). I learned from you that anyone can drop by TT and take a class. That's how I am spending my vacation next year :-) Well, at least a couple of days. Yahoooo

  3. cirita~ My doors are always open to yogis! Even if you don't stay with me, we will at least need to take class training and you must come to my beautiful studio! I hope he keeps it here too!

  4. Siiiiii, we'll take a class together next year ;)
