Day 68: Motivation

Do you ever get motivated by having handsome (or if you're a guy, pretty) teachers? Normally it doesn't phase me because lets face it, there are alot of beautiful yogi and yoginis. However, feeling a bit burned out at this point in the challenge (I'm THREE Bikram classes behind, but actually one ahead overall if I were allowed to count my baptiste/power flow classes) I need some help. Last night I was in Phoenix on business. Tempe to be exact. So after my conference was over, I hopped in the rental car and headed to the 615 class at Bikram Yoga Tempe. A handsome gentleman named Don was teaching. He had salt and pepper hair, was tan, and had a smile that reached up and gave him warm crinkly eyes. I wanted to throw him in my suitcase and take him back to Vegas so he can teach me here all of the time. The studio was cute, the room small and crowded and the students were great. It felt like home to me. That's the nice thing about Bikram. It's the same no matter where you go. I flew back home today and went straight from the airport to 630 Bikram at the old studio. Tall dark and handsome was teaching (Michael). He just graduated with the last class and I've only taken his class once before. His dialog was much improved, his style smooth and encouraging. It was a great class.
So yes, I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed being three behind again. I was also exhausted and wanted to go straight home from the airport. So having adorable handsome male teachers two days in a row was great motivation for me. Hey, I'm only human.....

  2. So funny! I'm still amazed at how many guys {handsome or otherwise} are in the classes at BYH. When the studio first opened the woman to man ratio was WAY out of whack. Some days now it's 50/50!

    Way to keep it moving! I'm impressed by your zeal even when traveling for business!

  3. I love handsome teachers! Two of my favourite teachers are handsome men with great dialogue and they can always make me laugh.

    You can do it! You can make up those three classes!

  4. Haha, awesome! Motivation can come from many sources, so if it works, why not? :)

  5. Nothing like a little eye candy to help motivate you:)
