So just over a year ago, I tore my acl in my left knee playing ice hockey, and shortly afterward completely tore it playing floor hockey. I have always been into sports,and a bit of a gym rat since I was about 19. This injury took alot of my happiness from me as well as a lot of my physical abilities. When the fall came this year, still waiting on surgery and constantly reinjuring myself at the gym because I was training too hard I realized I really needed to find something to physically and mentally challenge myself because I was really really missing playing sports.
The first time I tried Bikram hot yoga I was hooked. It not only phsyically pushed my limits, but even more importantly it mentally challenged me more then any sport ever has.Every class is different, and if I am mentally not prepared I suffer through an hour and a half of hell. I know I have to bring my A game mentally and I will coast right on through. So wether a good class or a bad class, I feel fantatsic afterward. I have received so many physical benefits with only doing it twice a week for about two and a half months, my body has come leaps and bounds . I no longer have inflamation , and very little stiffness in injured knee/leg. I was having this daily... ranging to quite painful. I openly admit my posture and balance are terrible, I work as a dental assistant leaning all day and have been compensating with my stronger leg for over a year, so with each class I stand a little taller and straighter, and with each class I can hold by balance poses just a little longer. And it feels great. No more lower back pain from work, no more tendonitis in my right arm. I now look forward to walking into that warm hot room whenever I get a chance, and pushing myself as hard as I can tht day!!
