SLC Bikram Yoga's 30 Day Challenge Review

Review by Aimee

As a yoga enthusiast, I've had the opportunity of taking a few classes at Salt Lake City Bikram yoga in Sugarhouse, Utah. "What is Bikram yoga," you ask? It's the "hot" yoga you've heard your friends talk about! The SLC Bikram Yoga website describes it as follows:

Bikram yoga is a challenging series of 26 asanas (postures) designed to systematically stretch, strengthen and restore health to every part of the body.

[It's] twenty-six poses systematically move fresh oxygenated blood to one hundred percent of your body, to each organ and fiber, restoring all systems to healthy working order, just as Nature intended. Proper weight, muscle tone, vibrant good health, and a sense of well-being will automatically follow.
. . . .
The room is heated to warm your muscles, which allows for deeper and safer stretching. The heat also increases the heart rate, giving you a better cardiovascular workout, and promotes sweating, which flushes toxins from the body, leaving you with a wonderful glow.



Why all this talk about Bikram yoga? Well, this week I have the special opportunity to begin Bikram yoga's 30-day challenge, which consists of taking 30 Bikram yoga classes in 30 days. Yikes!! :) I'm excited, but anxious at the same time, and interested to see and feel the results! This promises to be an experience that, as Bikram says, will "transform [my] life and transform [my] body!" Wow!

If you're interested, each Monday I will be blogging about the challenge right here on Tight Wad in Utah. I will also leave daily posts on SLC Bikram yoga's Facebook page. So, stay tuned and wish me luck! In the meantime, feel free to visit the SLC Bikram yoga site if you're interested in learning more, and perhaps join me in this challenge! :)

Right now for Utah residents there's an introductory offer of $20 for 10 consecutive days of unlimited yoga classes! Great deal!!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
