Bikram withdrawal

I haven't blogged for a week but it doesn't mean I haven’t done any BY. I practiced 5 days in a row last week (Sat - Wed) and then I flew to the NW to celebrate the holidays with the family. I am working remotely for a couple of days and then taking time off. There is no BY studio nearby so I am going through major withdrawal. On top of this, I am not eating very well. I am normally a health nut. I love to cook but I can't bake. But here, in my family, everyone is a pastry chef. So dangerous to be around so many delicious cookies, truffles, cheesecakes … ok, just once a year!!

I envy each one of you that are reading this and going to Bikram class today. Next week, I am driving to the closest city with a BY studio (probably 1 hour from here without traffic). Obama, why didn’t you include this as part of your health reform? We need a BY studio in every major city in the US. As you know, this thought has been with me for a while and then Rajashree said something funny a couple of weeks ago during her seminar at my studio “we just went to Nevada [teacher training] now we are going to Obama”. YES

Anyway, I just wanted to post a short note to wish everyone happy holidays!!!

  1. I feel for you! My break was self imposed and I was miserable. Hang in there until you can get to that studio! Happy Holidays to you too....and enjoy the pastries.

  2. Happy Holiday's to you too! Works for me in a pinch...I turn the heat all the way up in my home office and run it for a couple of hours. Then I just work through the postures on my own. Not the same but better than nothing :) Have a very nice time with your family!

  4. Hi Cirita,

    I just discovered your blog, it's awesome! I have lots of catching up to do....I'm going to read the previous entries when I have some time =) And I totally agree, Bikram Yoga is definitely a beautiful addiction.

    Best wishes for the new year!
