Lately, I’m back into the bikram yoga. I hate to be hot! Let that be known because that is the first thing people who haven’t done it say to me. I couldn’t agree more. However, there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow after a bikram yoga class. Not only does my back and whole body feel amazing. But after 90 minutes of 26 poses in a heated room of at least 105 with humidity around 30-40% my mind feels calm. It easier to take deep breaths for the rest of the day. Somedays, it’s a little too much and I have to lay down for an hour or so after I get home. I think I’m a better person, wife and better mommy. Like we say on the airplane, please put your own oxygen mask on before assisting others. Bikram yoga is my oxygen mask at the moment.

But it’s always worth it. Like my husband and I like to say, we love the guarentee! You will definitely get a workout and a stretch in all at once.

As a breastfeeding mommy, I’m a little surprised that my milk supply is still steady with bikram yoga 2-3 times a week and spin classes. I think the key for me is hydration and consistency. Both of which I can be obssessively good at.

Keeping it real with a photo post bikram class with my longtime friend, Heather.

Sure, sometimes you lose your giddyup for a few hours but maybe that’s a good thing? I’m just sayin…
