    Bikram, right?? I have friends that SWEAR by it- they go 2 or 3 times a week. I cannot stand to be hot and sweaty, so I neither do hot yoga nor exercise... which is NOT a good thing. I gotta get busy on that or I won't be setting myself up for old age too successfully. Groupon sometimes runs deals on Bikram if there are studios near you, so that might be a good way to go about your first class- at a discount. Then you won't be out a ton of money if you find you hate it. Just a thought smile

    I went a few times with a friend and didn't really enjoy it. The class was 90 minutes and the minimal benefit of being slightly more flexible in the heat didn't outweigh feeling faint and having to prepare ahead by eating very far in advance and bring clothes to wear on the way home.Also, I could do maybe 5 of the 26 poses and they are all done twice.  I feel yoga in a normal temperature is equally beneficial but I have a friend that loves it.

    I've tried it and it's got it's pros and cons. I suggest only going if you have already been active for a while. It's a lot of heat to put your body through so I also suggest the first few times that you go that you go for a shorter class and help your body buildup to the intensity. I enjoyed a milder heated class that was still heated but not at 90 degrees. Try different instructors and studios and you will probably find one you like.
