If you follow my blog, you know that I have dabbled a bit in other forms of yoga on top of doing Bikram. I'm three Bikram classes behind, but if I were allowed to count my other classes I'd actually be ahead by one. Curiosity and much prodding from friends who do these other yogas drove me to try them out. Power flow and Baptiste are the two (heated) yoga forms I have sampled. I liked them both. Baptiste more so than the Power Flow. However, even though I enjoyed them, I always ran back into the hot Bikram room anxiously, glad it was still there for me. You see, while I like those other forms, it's just not the same as the 26 and 2 of Bikram. The dialog, the room conditions, the teachers, the sequence....put together it's magic. It's cleansing, healing, soul purging and I find that I need it. I may not want to do it, but I always feel better after it's over. It isn't something that is nice to do. For me, it's something that is necessary to do. Like breathing, eating and pooping. So for the next 32 days I'm finished with my dabbling. I'm going to stay home, with my Bikram and finish out this challenge strong. I will catch up the three classes and be grateful that I live in a city that provides this amazing form of yoga in abundance!
