I had my first Bikram yoga class last night. It’s yoga, Jim, but not as we know it! It consists of performing a series of 26 postures. Each posture is done twice. The difference between Bikram and other types of yoga is that the room is heated. Think yoga in a desert! OK, I’m exaggerating, it’s not that hot, but it’s hot enough to make you sweat profusely. I enjoyed it but I feel a bit sore this morning.
The other difference between Bikram and other types of yoga is that people tend to wear not very much. It was quite liberating doing a yoga class in just a pair of shorts 🙂
I’m going to continue doing it for a couple weeks and see how it goes. I imagine I will get bored of it after a while because you repeat the same set of postures during every class. Variety is the spice of life after all!
