I've been away for a while. I'm still yogaing but I've branched out and I've been focusing on some full body training. Building strength and muscle and losing some of my stubborn tummy fat. I'm proud to say I've lost an inch from my hips in the past 6 weeks and the left side of my body, my thigh and bicep, is now the same size as the right side. I'm super excited about my transformation, I'll let you know what type of work I've been doing in another post.

Today I want to share that my baby brother - my 6'4", rugby player, weight lifter - could bench press me - baby brother, came to his very first Bikram yoga class this morning!

He tried every pose, didn't sit out once and made it right to the end of class! When he walked out of class he swore in Dutch and said, "Man, that was hard!". My mum and I were so proud! He's made my day. It took nearly 2 years to get him to come and he always ranted about how it was a cult! Well, he's already talking about how he could commit to 3 days a week. Looks like mum and I have converted another to the Bikram cult.

I don't know for sure, but I think it was the comment from teacher J, that in Connecticut and Maryland NFL players are doing Bikram Yoga to help improve their game. I had mentioned that, and then suddenly he said, I'm coming to Yoga on Monday.
And at 11 am after his first practice, he said, "I feel so good!"
