I squeeked after class when Jakob said I was competing in Malaysia’s first Asana Championship.
“But I can’t even get my head to knee during Dandayama-janushirasana!” I exclaimed. Which is true. I can, some days, but I wibble-wobble out like Jell-O in an earthquake.
“When you’re holding a posture in front of 200 people, no way you’d want to fall out” he said.
So… I guess I’m competing then? Which means right after TT it’s straight to mad ass training back in KL as the championships are in mid December. As usual, some people may think that I’m not right for being so all-out, but screw it.
Excuse me if you will, I have to get to bed to prepare my body for the onslought that is a 9am beginner’s class and 1pm Advanced class. I foresee myself waddling like a duck after class and being all bleary eyed after 84postures in 2 hours. 😯 Jakob said that being a Bikram Yoga teacher is the only LEGAL profession in the world where you get paid to torture people and the clients say “Thank you” after that. “Well, the other one I can think of isn’t exactly legal, so I’ll just let your imagination run wild” he said while I giggled into my towel.
And here’s a VERY GOOD explanation by TheDancingJ on her blog about how one’s spine lengthens / compresses during forward / backward bends. Clickity click! She’s got such beautiful postures and a happy healthy spine! Props to Foo for asking such a question [nudge nudge, see, it’s time for you to try a Bikram class and build some muscle and survive on 3-4 hours of sleep like me 😀 ]
p.s : I am so backlogged on blogging.
