Best investment I've made for my locks.

Post image for My Bikram Journal Day 5, Final Day!!

I have come to my last day of this Bikram yoga challenge and I must admit I do not want it to end; having a challenge to document everyday has been somewhat therapeutic for me.  Although I will say I am looking forward to drinking coffee this weekend!   Read more »

I've just started Bikram! I've done four classes now and can relate to everything you were talking about. At first it is so challenging, and you are literally trying to count how many poses you have done, just so you can figure out how many more are to go, but then you step outside the room and feel so satisfied (despite being sick after my first class). I've noticed that because I sweat so much during the class, I become more aware of all the toxins and other bad things that are leaving my body, which makes me think even more about what I let enter into my body! Bikram has helped me in thinking of what I'm putting into my body, so when I feel like eating something that isn't good for me after a hard day, it's much easier to reconsider. It also helps me to consciously drink water more regularly too!! I've noticed I am also more aware of my posture and how I used my muscles. Tonight I found myself in the shower, unwinding by putting on hot, steamy water and stretching up and down, side to side, noticing the great affects Bikram is having on me. I would recommend to anyone, just don't give up in the first few lessons!

This is wild... I was looking for a Bikram course in Asheville and found this - as soon as you said "...the door opened… an elderly man walked in, “up please, begin” - I was like, "Joel Pierce...?" I didn't even know at the time that you were in Philly. I did some computer work for them a few years back in trade for classes, and man, did I get my time's worth. The man is a force of nature, and his instructors are really, really fantastic. The location is great too. I miss it. I definitely appreciate his approach, which is indeed different from many other instructors. I'm really glad you got a chance to meet him, and I hope you're still sticking with it. Really neat to read a story about Bikram Philly!

Post image for My Bikram Journal Day 4

I woke this morning feeling emotional, I wasn’t sad or upset, I just felt like I was in a quite calm place and it was making me feel odd having suffered for many years with a racing mind.  This feeling felt quite strange to me. During my work day I felt my eyes fill up on more than one occasion for no reason at all. I mentioned my emotion to someone here at our office who practices yoga regularly and she told me if I was doing a lot of back bending and poses using my hips it would bring out a lot of emotion and then it all made sense.

Post image for My Bikram Journal, Day Three

I had the most peaceful sleep last night. I felt rested and relaxed and woke well before my alarm clock. My body was aching in places I never knew could ache and I did not wake with a headache this time. I was however feeling a little groggy from lack of caffeine, it’s the 3rd day with no coffee and I’m starting to crave it. I walked past the coffee shop on my way to work and the smell almost enticed me in… but then I remembered “The Driver and The Chariot” I didn’t give in. Read more »

Hello! First off I must say, "I'm so proud of you!" This year I have 12 different resolutions for each month and my January goal was to do yoga everyday. So far so good! I've taken some "rest" days where I just do a few sun salutations and I feel really great. My body, my mind, my soul, my energy. Everything really flows together, and I never realized that until I started to practice yoga! On January 31st, to celebrate my month long resolution with yoga, I'm going to take a Bikram class for the first time. I've really enjoyed reading your Bikram journal so far, and it's given me new motivation to finish up the month strong. Thank you! xoxo

Post image for My Bikram Journal Day Two

My alarm clock rang at 6:30am. I woke, my body ached, and I was for sure dehydrated. The 2.5 – 3 liters of water was clearly not enough.  Although my muscles hurt slightly and I had a head ache from lack of water, I felted enlightened. I was ready to head back to Bikram class after work and try harder. I nibbled on some peanut butter and jelly toast, packed my yoga kit, and headed into work.

SO incredibly disappointed by this entry. Bikram is NOT yoga. Bikram Choudhury is not a yogi and (much like Richard Haynes, Urban Outfitters CEO) is so untrue to the image he sells. The girls that write for this blog are NOT a reflection of Bikram (or even Haynes for that matter) but you guys should do some research before you go around promoting this. While you girls might like the idea of yoga, you should listen during the classes, read the Yoga Sutras, the Bhagavad Gita, take classes that are more than ashtanga, take restorative, meditative circles... etc. Yoga is not just poses, it is a way of thinking.

I was going to wait until it cools down here in Australia and start then, but after reading your posts I got so inspired that I immediately booked myself in for a Bikram challenge. I need to detox, change the way I eat, calm down. Thanks again for this so much, you are really inspiring.

Post image for My Bikram Journal: Day One

I have always been the type of person who is continually searching for something… I have never felt rested. I needed to find my balance and calm the mild anxiety that had been following me for years. So, when the opportunity arose for me to participate in a 5-day Bikram challenge, I dove straight at the chance.

Balancing stick comes well before Camel. I think it's the 6th in the standing where Camel is closer to the end of class....before rabbit. Something tells me this isn't exactly true. Sorry.

You should keep going! Doing the 30 day challenge at Bikram yoga Philadelphia changed my practice for the better! It really was a fun experience.

Post image for Makeup Tutorial: The Wing For Spring

The card thing ends up looking like this. The line never curls up, which I think looks crazy. https://thrillseekingbehavior.wordpress.com/2011/03/20/eyeliner/
Spooky -Nov 03, 2013, 2:35PM
Ok, the way you do it is to get a business card or one of those things guys have in their collars. Those flexible plastic things with a round end and a pointed end? Idk what they are called. Ok, so you get one and use that as a guide, placing it next to your eye. The plastic thing has the advantage of fitting right next to your eye, as it is smaller than a card. Use a small angled brush to draw in the wing with black eyeshadow. Repeat on the other side. Use a q tip dipped in makeup remover to clean up. The powder creates a line you can leave, or use as a guide for liquid liner. And if you don't get it even the first time, it's much easier to clean up than anything else.

I would love a video or post on the stylist's favorite tools like brushes, combs etc! I would love to do this look. I'm curious on the brush she used. My hair is on the thicker end and most brushes make it poofy. Love the vid!
