Hey Dread Head,
I'm on a juice feast and have been doing Bikram for the last two weeks. I had to start incorporating blended smoothies into my protocol as I didn't want to kill myself during an asana.:rolleyes:
I'm on day 69 of my revamped juice feast (a cleanse that incorporates as much raw nutrition through produce and oils and super greens as possible). I've done many MC's in my lifetime. With this said, I would NEVER do Bikram while on the Master Cleanse. I personally believe this would be a recipe for disaster. I'm just wanting to be completely honest with this response.
The MC is hard enough on the system all by itself. I'd recommend getting a good steam or sauna in, but any hard physical activity could really hurt someone on an MC. Especially something as rigorous as Bikram. Even Bikram chastises students for not eating while doing his yoga.
During one of his teacher training classes a student had been on some sort of fast and she passed out into a coma for several days. Not cool.:(
Hope this helps.
Glad you posted those details Gwena. I came across the term Bikram for the first time while reading your blog. I was intrigued and started to search for a class near me. I was planning to do 10 sessions toward the end of my fast but now after reading your post, I might wait and do the sessions during the weeks of breaking my long fast.
I am really looking forward to giving it a try.
On a different note, I still can't believe the length of your fast. Of course I will listen to my own body while on my fast but 69 days sounds amazing. Do you have to purchase the Juice Feast to know the ingredients for the juices consummed? Also, is it possible to do juice feast via purchasing because I hate juicing and I sold mine. Currently I buy it and supplement with the MC when I run out.
