Bikram without Words

For the first time in nearly five years I had the pleasure of experiencing a SILENT class. Instead of having to listen to the constant directions of a trainer, you just follow a few instructions and, above all, CHANGE, to signal the end of a posture.

For to get the timing right, is the real difficulty. Saba has been teaching most of the Wednesday classes that I attend in Berlin and it has been a pleasure of a special kind to have more time for watching my thoughts and associations during Bikram postures.

I wish all her classes were silent on Wednesdays at lunch time! I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, while sighing over the new kinds of pain that my kind of progress is produing: left foot, left knee, between the shoulder blades…

But much of your pain is self-chosen, wrote Kahlil Gibran ages ago…
