Bikram Yoga is hard. Lauran has been raving about it for sometime now. Last night I agreed to go with her to Funky Door Yoga in Cole Valley.
The room is 105 degrees F and 40% humidity. The class lasts 90 minutes. We went through 26 different poses and two breathing exercises. The last ten minutes I started to get tunnel vision and had to lay down. I was zapped.
The instructor was really good. She knew I was new and kept giving me advice on the hard stuff. She kept calling me "James" though. Apparently I mumble my own name.
I wasn't aware it was possible to sweat that much. After a cold shower I felt 10,000 times better.
Afterwards Lauran and I went to some sushi place in Cole Valley. I haven't explored that neighboorhood much. It's actually really cool. I would like to live there, but Noe is really nice, too.
It's only $29 a month and you can pay as you go. Since one class is $16 I signed up for a full month. I'm actually looking forward to going back next week.
