For those who practice Bikram Yoga – excellent article!

Compass & Quill

When I first started doing Bikram yoga a couple of years ago, I was amazed at how much I could sweat. I remember the first time I noticed that my shins were sweating, and being simultaneously scared and amused. Before that moment, I thought sweat was pretty much confined to armpits, backs, and foreheads. What a surprise for me to see it coming from everywhere, soaking through my clothes and towel.

      Momma took all 6 of her boys and later her 2 girls and made us learn how to clean, wash and iron cloths and cook…She would say, I will not have my boys being taken care of by a woman when they should care for themselves….LOL

    I’d love to try Bikram yoga, really would.

    This is great for me to remember. I plan to, just need to find a place. I hear it’s really cleansing.
