This was supposed to be a good Bikram class. I had semi-empty stomach, my body was hydrated, my mat was super clean. YES, did you know you could wash your yoga mat in the washing machine? hahaha I've been practicing yoga for 10 years and it never occurred to me that this could be done until a couple of days ago. Anyway, all the conditions for a successful class were in place but it turn out a total disaster. It counts because I didn't leave the room. It counts because this is yoga practice and not yoga perfection. But other than that, I had to rest during Standing Bow Pulling Pose, 1 set of triangle and 1 set of camel. Not very happy about it. I am glad that Stephan, the instructor, pushed me to do the second sets because I was having a little anxiety attack, shallow breathing.
Not sure where this is all coming from but I have been a little bit stressed out lately. I don't know if you read about Chelsea King over the last few days. http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2010-03-03-missing-teen-san-diego_N.htm?csp=34. This is so sad and scary.

Good class with Tim ( aka the enchanter). He normally does an amazing guided meditation at the end of the class, that had put me to sleep in the past, not today. He has a nice French accent. His voice was so relaxing, I almost felt to sleep during wind removing pose. I couldn't keep my eyes open hahaha
