Hello Veg_Tech and welcome to the team! I second DEBHILBORN! Definitely make sure that you are hydrated before class and don't try to push push push! I've been doing Bikram yoga for about 7 1/2 years and there are postures that I still can't do. Indeed, we are all made differently. I can do a lot of the hands-to-feet poses but standing separate leg head-to-knee??? FORGET IT! I just try the best that I can and do it the right way. As long as you do the posture the right way, you get the benefit, even if you can only do 1% of the posture.
It took me two years before I was able to kick my leg out in standing head-to-knee (that's the first posture that you do after the warm-up series and first water break). And as I wrote before, I still can't really do the standing separate leg head-to-knee (posture after triangle).
Also, hydrate well every day. It will really help.
So glad you've joined us!
