I think you all will know this. But just to be perfectly clear... NONE of these photos below are of me.
That doesn't mean however that someday, maybe 10 years from now, I might not be able to get myself into one of these positions. If I keep practicing regularly. As one of the teachers at the studio where I practice says, "you never know what your body might be able to do today". I like her attitude. She's in the top left corner up there. These photos were all taken at the 2011 Kansas & Missouri Yoga Asana Championship in Lawrence last weekend.
I have been practicing Bikram Yoga for a little over a year now. It's extremely challenging and one of the best things I do for myself. All of the people in the pictures teach or attend class at the studio where I practice. It was cool to see them at their finest.
If you've never tried a Bikram Yoga class - give it a whirl sometime. I thought I was going to die 1/2 way through my first class. By the end of the class I was hooked.
