Bikram Yoga – Benefits – A journey back into our bodies
Cameron and I have been dragging our busy, tired, cranky butts along to the Southport Bikram Yoga Studio to see what all the fuss was about of this phenomenon called Bikram… and 3 weeks later we’re hooked…
Cam has me now wearing a teeny weeny yoga bikini bending, twisting, sweating and enlivening our selves several times a week. I have felt my body crack and creak and groan as it releases in the joints, muscles nd ligaments where emotions have gathered together forming tightness…
I would not say it is all pleasant, however as I drink water and sweat it out, and stay persistant in the poses and committment to coming back into the room each session, I feel my soul finding its way home, back into my body and I am immensely grateful for all the benefits, truly.
