it was kinda a hard class for me. it felt really hot at points, like a little too hot (usually i love the heat and feel like i could use some more.) and it was my first class where i had a moment of dizzy. during tree pose, i attempted to go into standing toe pose, and it did not feel right...so i came up and perhaps too quickly because i had some overwhelm with a hint of dizzy. i rested. i did the rest of class and that all felt great. i was shaky after class as well, and that doesn't usually happen these days. but then after sitting and talking to my friend jen and having an emergen-c...i felt much better. i actually felt really good after just a sip of the emergen-c. oh, and i almost did standing head to knee pose, with the leg extended, and that is saying a lot for me in just 9 classes!
i am continuing to read from Bikram's book. i am on ch. 6, where he gets into the poses..describing each one, giving tips and explaining what physical benefits you are gaining. which reminds me, lately the past couple classes i have heard the teachers talking about some of the poses releasing toxins...squeezing the toxins out of your organs. and i have to say, i feel like that is truly happening...on the physical level and also deeper and more emotional.
well...off to get the kids ready for school. have a good one!
