It’s cold in the winter

Days 30
Classes 32
Teacher Megan

Had a class back at the old studio today. Hardly got in the door before Laura called me on writing the blog. Hi Laura! It was the first time I’ve bumped into someone who’s just randomly found it. It was nice to see the familiar faces, so I guess I’ll have to sneak in some more classes there going forward. They currently have a broken heater (should be fixed next week) so that meant a rather cool class, with the heat coming from the back of the room. Great reason to park myself on the back row for a change. The lack of heat had the unexpected consequence that I kept getting bored (?! I’m officially damaged goods) and losing focus. This does not bode well for doing other types of yoga. Thankfully Megan is a very good motivator.

I lost a pair of shakti’s earlier this week, and I’ve been trying to find a shop that sells them to replace. But male yoga cloths are almost impossible in this town. I’ve managed a few places selling decent female cloths. But so far the only bikram suitable male shop I’ve found is a bikram studio in the completely opposite end of town. I bought their only pair in my size last weekend so I’m not holding my breath that they’ll have a load either. One of the yoga shop I visited that turned out only do female clothing told me to buy football (soccer) shorts. Yeah right! That might work fine for asthanga or whatever but for bikram honestly? If you’ve got suggestion for good online stores I’d love to hear about them.

Sorry kind of tired and ranting. I think I need this to be a movie and sleep night. Have fun people.

  1. Caroline is the UK’s main supplier of shakti yoga gear & also a bikram teacher. Her web site is- also see her site for when her sales are at bikram studios around London. If you don’t see what you want on the website she can usually order it in for you so just email and ask her.

  2. Doesn’t it suck when we lose something especially when it’s something we lose regularly?

    I don’t know how much it would cost to ship to the UK from the US or other countries in Europe, but my studio owner created MAX shorts for men. They are designed with bikram in mind. All the men at my studio wear it and my husband wears it too. They dry fast, are snug yet comfortable and flexible.>

  3. Hi Johan,

    Keep up the good work! I am enjoying following your progress on this blog. Hope to see you at Chiswick soon.


  4. Thanks for all the replies. I’ll have a look into the sites and hopefully get something sorted.
