Bikram Yoga

It's been about five months since I started Bikram Yoga. I like taking part in physical activity, I wanted to do continue with dance, but always find myself frustrated because I may not be at the level as the class or it may not be advanced enough for me.
Bikram Yoga is "Hot Yoga" the room is heated, you sweat, the room smells funky.. but what has kept me going is the fact that it is all my own.
Whenever I feel like going, if I am stressed, or feeling pain, I just go, quietly and leave quietly.
I have a problem with being consistent with activities like this, but so far, I have been very consistent. I am also noticing changes in my physical body that I like and the sense of competition I feel with myself each time to do better--get more flexible, feel more at ease.
I wish I went more during the week (I only go once or twice) but I guess that is pretty good considering I have to work etc.
I highly recommend for anyone who wants to feel good physically but takes a lot to get motivated.
It is tough at first and hard to handle the heat, but you get used to it and really start to enjoy after a while. What I like the most is that there are people from every body type at yoga.
This guy makes it look so easy :P
