It’s been two months since I started doing Bikram yoga daily, or twice daily in some days. I feel the phenomenal results. It’s a great addition to my daily 60 minute work out at the gym. Bikram yoga has changed me in so many ways, mentally and physically. Mentally, I am more calm, more focused, and more determined. I also slept better at the earlier hours. Physically, I think I’m more toned, though not necessarily losing any weights. Of course there is always a lot of water weight loss after the class but that shouldn’t be counted. I considered myself pretty flexible, but Bikram yoga has improved the joint lubrication even more. The big plus is that I tend to crave only healthy food after the class.
As far as the last two months, I had finally broken my unhealthy snack habit. I incorporate fruits into my routine meals–especially berries, clementines, grapes and apples. My daily diets always contain multicolor vegetables, and I drink many cups of green tea and barley tea per day. No coffee!
I feel good and feel that this is absolutely the way the healthy lifestyle should be. I hope to continue doing Bikram as my time allows. Here comes the 3rd month and counting!
