It’s that time of year again – New Years Resolutions. We are bombarded with “New Year, New You!” slogans and get thin quick schemes. The truth is, nothing worthwhile is easy. So the first step in losing weight is to get serious about it. Do you really want to lose weight? Uh oh… this is about to sound like work! You mean I can’t starve myself and cram into my skinny jeans tomorrow then feel great about it? Well you can certainly try, but we all know how that’s going to end up. We never said this would be easy – but we did say it would be worth it and that yes, you really and truly can do it. We can promise you this, if you want to lose weight and you do it with Bikram yoga you will not only have a healthy body, but you will have a healthy spine, healthy mind and a healthy life.
Most of us have tried every diet under the sun, all of us at Bikram Yoga St. Pete included. We’ve done the master cleanse, macrobiotic diets, Atkins, Bood Type diet, skipping meals diet – you name it, we’ve tried it. What we discovered is that diets don’t work. If you want to change your body, you have to change your mind. In the words of Wayne Dyer, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” So, at Bikram Yoga St. Pete, we teach you how to focus your mind. Not only do we teach you focus, but we also give you the best workout you’ve had in your life! Just this morning a client used her new calorie-counting gadget and discovered she had burned just under 700 calories in class. No kidding! So if you learn how to focus and calm your mind all the while getting the best work out of your life and at the same time stretch your body to lengths it’s never been plus compress and contract your internal organs giving you an internal body work out – your body begins to work at it’s maximum optimization from the very first class! Just think of how this will affect not only the way you look in skinny jeans, but your overall well-being. You’ll feel calmer, stronger, healthier and look better doing it too. There is simply no other exercise like it on the planet. There is a reason George Clooney does Bikram Yoga every day at 7am. And Lady Gaga, and Daniel Craig, and Sandra Bullock… the list just goes on.
Before you jump on the diet band wagon, kill yourself at the gym and beat yourself up again this year, come try class with us. We will get you in the best shape of your life – in just one 90 minute class.
