ow

Yesterday I went back to Bikram yoga after two weeks off (due to illness, mostly, which while it didn't last that long left a lingering cough and inability to breathe deeply, which makes hot yoga practically impossible for me). I was braced for a really tough session, having been away for so long, but it felt wonderful. I came home all filled with happy-body endorphins.

Today, though, I hurt beyond hell. And unfortunately, whatever psychotic part of my brain handles motivation will remember today's feeling and not yesterday's, no matter how much I try to convince it otherwise.

Ow.

sore
You know, while it may be annoying I'm always happy when I'm sore the next day cuz I know it's working.

Re: sore
Yeah, a little sore is good, but too much is counterproductive! It's that happy medium that perpetually eludes me....

aha, you just need more of the same ;)

I tried Bikram once. I found it a bit regimented. Possibly the studio was just weird. It's a lot like ashtanga, no?

I'm not sure; Bikram's the only studio-style method I've taken. (Most of my study has been one-on-one generic hatha yoga). It is a bit regimented in that you always do the same poses, same order, same amount of time, but I find it helps me because I can turn off the part of my brain that's trying to remember *how* to do the pose, and just do it, as deeply and as well as I can.
