This was my first class in 4 days. I got eight hours of disjointed sleep last night and woke up physically and emotionally exhausted. I had been planning on attending the 9:45 or 12:00 class but that would have required getting out of bed before noon. Emily F. dropped me off at BYA at 3:20 after helping us pick up a hand-me-down tv from friends. I made it into the room right on time. I didn't lie down in Savasana because I knew I'd need to jump up right away. My blood pressure has been wacky lately (orthostatic hypotension that was probably caused by high blood pressure medication that I was prescribed as a kid and repeated bouts of anemia) during the standing poses and I wanted to start out strong. I had a hard time anyway and had to sit down for one set of most of the standing poses. I made it through the standing series and nearly fell asleep in the first Savasana. I haven't been feeling anything in Fixed Firm Pose. I felt good stretching in all directions of my thoracic spine during Rabbit Pose. My spine feels crooked/twisted and I have to consciously work at keeping my eyes straight instead of looking off to one side. We went for ice cream at George's after class. Zanzabar and Cinnamon. Mmmm! Tomorrow, I will write an introduction to explain why I'm putting myself through this and how I began Bikram Yoga. Oh, and I will start taking iron supplements again to see if that helps with the fainting.
