Take 5-->> Bikram Yoga

Bikram Yoga or Hot Yoga is a series of 26 yoga poses done in a room, usually maintained at a temperature of 100-105 degrees. This temperature promotes a massive amount of sweat which rids the body of toxins. It also makes the body very warm, and more flexible.

So I am 2 classes into the Bikram 30 days for $30 challenge and well, not sure if you would call it taking 5, it's more like...I mean I don't really know what it is like but that room is hotter than July and I am doing it!
I have taking my body through a lot in a year that marked my 34th year on earth, and included a move from the west to the east coast. I have partied and socialized and eaten whatever I have wanted and am feeling the effects are not exercising or eating like I should. I am going to use this time just before the new year to detox my mind body and spirit in an effort to honor the hard work that was done, and usher in a fresh 365 days to go out and hit it a little, harder, faster, bigger and badder;-)
And yeah, I can totally do this pose!
