Day 75 -Tight

Awkward Pose 5/12/10

Awkward Pose 5/12/10

I think when I go to a 90 minute class the day before a 60 minute class, I am always tighter.  I need to make a big effort to go to Monday morning 6:20am, so that I can test this theory.  As I plan on going to tomorrow morning’s 90, which is followed by Friday morning’s 60 min.

Today’s instructor as well as tomorrow’s instructor is Maria.  I really like her as I think that she really enjoys what she is doing, but I am debating whether or not to ask her not to have her voice be so rushed sounding.  When we are 15 seconds from getting out of the posture, she has a crescendo that really makes a lot of people fall out of the Bikram yoga postures.

I don’t know if I am totally right in my thinking, so I will have to keep paying attention to it.  Sorta stresses me out too when she does that.  I think she is trying to get us to bust our butts more, but I think it is backfiring.

Today’s posture is the second portion of the awkward posture series.  I have not advanced in this one and it’s because my knee hurts like hell if I go past a certain point, so I don’t.

Also, I have been asked to put more weight on my big toes – and from the looks of the photo to the right, it does appear that there is a lot of weight on my outside toes – but I assure you, that’s not where I feel it.  I also think there is something to how your feet are connected to your legs and how they would be aligned based on that in this posture.  Does that make sense?

Namaste.
