A bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you fail to make the turn....

It's gonna get harder before it gets easier. But it will get better, you just gotta make it through the hard stuff first.

My Bikram

I had already written about my other love. I had a vision to share my Bikram yoga practice with y'all. Here is an example of the project. All photos taken by Larry (who has ideas of a better setting than our backyard).

  1. Beautiful! You could model a Bikram pose chart. I tried Bikram last year and there was much of it I liked - the heat, the repetition for instance. But something about the transitions in the seated portion tweaked out my lower back. I'd like to give it another try some time.

    P.S. I went to animal athletics boot camp again today and told Yassine you said hi. :-)

    1. Sarah, I used to say in class if you have any back problem or simply tired, roll up instead of a power sit up. I hope you give it another try, it's actually good for back exactly, you know:)
      Thanks, glad you're enjoying it too! I need me some bootcamp, if I can squeeze another thing in a day...

    2. A groupon for a hot yoga place not far from me just came up today so I bought it. Not officially Bikram but I can tell from the description that it is essentially the same thing. Guess I was meant to give it another try... :-)

  2. Wow. Great posture and flexibility! I'm a believer; it helps with trail running. Granted I've never tried Bikram - but these moves are classics in all types of yoga. Beautiful.

    1. Thank you. I feel that I lost so much since my running life has begun, but I absolutely believe in a joint benefits from one to another. Bikram teaches me patience and humility. Running teaches me to push beyond wanting to stop. They kind of work together:)

  4. Wow, Olga, I'm impressed. You look amazing doing those hard poses. Keep it up. I think I will try it again. I need to get some flexibility into my body!
