As Mike Mayle has said before, “You never forget your first Bikram yoga class.”
And he’s right: I remember that first class and many many many of the classes in between, because each class was a milestone on the way to achieving a different goal.
On day one of my Bikram practice, my goal was just to stay in the room. On day two, it was to come back. On day three it was to start memorizing the sequence. Two years in, it was to complete a 30 day challenge. A few months ago it was to focus on my big toe.
There is no start date, there is no end date; every day is another chance to set a small goal and meet it…
