Look at me keeping up with posting a new post everyday!
I went to Bikram just like I planned and what a good decision that was! I was in such a mind and body funk going into it and now I feel amazing! The other week I read something in the Science of Yoga by William J. Broad about Bikram and I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. Mr. Bikram has quite the attitude about his style of yoga. Broad quotes him as saying “So many Americans, ruin their bodies by blindly running around ‘exercising’ and playing sports. I tell my students, ‘No barbells, no dumbbells, no racket.’ Games are okay for children, for recreation and to teach them sportsmanship. But after that, you must give up trying to put a little ball in a hole all the time.” (pp. 47,48)
Come on! How serious can you get…no games!?
Broad also quotes him as saying, when referring to other styles of yoga, “Bogus yoga” ( p. 48).
Harsh! But maybe the man knows what he’s talking about… I will try and find out.
