Reasons I didn’t go to class and instead did living room floor yoga:
1. My hips were still wicked sore from the past two yoga sessions.
2. The first presidential debate was on during both of the classes that I would have liked to attend.
3. I was hungry.
4. My finger nails needed painting…

The third pose in the Bikram series is Awkward Pose ( Utkatasana )

This pose has gotten easier and easier for me, it isnt an easy thing to do especially in such a hot room but compared to other poses it’s easier. It’s all relative.
Bikram’s site says the benefits are the following.

Awkward Pose will tone and shape your legs.

It heals chronically cold feet.

It also helps relieve rheumatism and arthritis in the legs, and helps to cure slipped discs and other problems in the lower spine.

My pose looks nothing like this so although it feels kinda easy I have a long way to go.

I have challenged myself to do yoga everyday for one year and thought I'd blog about it. I have been practicing yoga on and off and back and forth for about 9 years and I have decided that it is time for me to really delve in and figure out what it's all about, if it is something I want to make part of my life. I also thought this might put some discipline in to my day and be a fun way to express my thoughts and share some pictures that may or may not have anything directly to do with yoga.
