El Fin

I went to Dallas on Friday to celebrate a friend's birthday and ended up meeting a fellow yogi and discussing yoga practice. She practiced Bikrum yoga and based on everything she described I never want to try it. Practicing Yoga in a hot room with a bunch of sweaty people? No thanks. To make it worse they don't even use props! She described their routine as being 26 moves that they repeat twice and they do the same 26 moves every time they practice. I guess different things work for different people.

As for actual yoga practice my headstand has been getting better. I can get into the pose fairly easily and my balance has been improving. Maybe I'll venture away from the wall sometime soon? I've begun holding my shoulder stand for six to seven minutes and go straight into halasana after it. I can't hold that pose very long because I am hamstring challenged. I've been doing a good deal of typing/ sitting at a computer this week and so I've been doing poses to stretch my mid and lower back and my hands and wrists. It's sad to think that the class is drawing to a close but thankfully I'll have the opportunity to continue practicing yoga next semester in Rest and Relaxation!
