Day One – in the bag

Day One 2nd Jan 2009 :: First 30-Day Challenge :: Bikram Yoga Maroochydore. Teacher: Priscilla

‘One down, only 364 to go’ was my first thought as my body relaxed into the last savasana. I allowed myself a quick smile before sinking into my warm, sweaty towel and reflecting on my first class and the many more to come.

With Priscilla at the helm, teaching a packed room, I had a surprisingly strong class considering I spent the past few days nursing some exotic virus my Irish brother in law, Gary smuggled back into Australia. It did coincide with a considerable dent we made in my dads home brew stash over the last two weeks but that’s a mere coincidence I assure you!

With the humidity at an all time high, I’m glad I shaved the pseudo mullet hairdo about an hour before class; a clean slate for the road ahead. Could I possibly let my hair grow for the next 12 months without a cut? Hmm interesting thought…

Right I’m off to edit my first video.
