After starting Bikram yoga with the image in my head of sweating out everything
bothering me and getting very flexible (like finally being able to reach the ground
with my fingers when bending foreward and being able to touch my knees with
my nose)... I stopped pretty quickly cause my body felt like totally messed up!
I felt like every nerve in my system was trapped.
Because I still didn't want to give up on yoga in general, I've joined some 'normal'
yoga at Studio Vandaan in Utrecht with friend E. How lovely! My new teacher
(Danielle) is very kind, down to earth and explanes every pose so well that I totally
understand what I'm doing and can finally feel relaxed and free while doing my
moves. I even welcome the downward dog with enthousiasm!
Today was especially luxurious cause we had the whole yoga session for
ourselves, total freedom when stretching your arms to all sides, hurray!
