My body needs discipline. 1) Get your mind out of the gutter 2) yours probably does too!
I have decided this is why I have not dropped out of Bikram just yet; although I did only buy a 5 time pass. The heat of the room is contributing to my persistence. It feels much easier to stretch into the poses when my muscles feel all elastic-y already.
I also realized that if there is a "trick" it's that yoga only LOOKS easy, just like ballet. It is a lot of hard work. I dig having to focus in my body for 90 minutes. I find it very peaceful. You can't stand on one foot if you're mind is anywhere else. Thankfully I was so focused I only noticed bikini-man waving his root chakra around again this morning for maybe 1 seconds. Blecgh.
Lastly, I am understanding the physics involved. Totally cool to make an adjustment and get the pose! Love it. Man, the human body is cool. That's why I originally went back to school to study A&P. Amazing!
