Hey, how are ya? You’re looking good today. Just stopping by to check in with you and give you a high five. I know I’ve been giving you a bit of a beating of late, what with my cuh-razy training schedule, but hats off to you, you haven’t shied away from a challenge. You’ve taken every squat, press up, insanely long bike ride etc in your stride. Oh sure, you’ve occasionally grumbled, but frankly, I don’t blame you. I’m kinda surprised you don’t kick up a stink more often, you’d be completely within your rights to do so. I know it was a bit of a shock to your system when I dragged you off the couch a few years ago and started putting you through your paces. I guess I just wanted to touch base with you to, you know, say thanks.

I’m on the record as being generally ‘meh’ about Yoga. Pilates, love it. Yoga? Meh. I tried it a couple of times and it just didn’t take. It was too slow, not challenging enough, the instructors were uninspiring – for whatever reason, I didn’t find the right fit. I plowed on with various other exercise, did lots of Pilates and plenty of stretching at home. But every time I mentioned my blase attitude towards Yoga, Yoga fanatics would tell me Bikram would turn it all around for me. I was skeptical. All that slow movement and breathing coupled with an intensely hot room you say? Not exactly appealing. Nonetheless, I decided to give it a go.
