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!
Even with the limited range of postures how can one get bored surrounded by so many almost naked sweating bodies?
Bikram yoga sucks…….Only homoes go to yoga………Comedy night Thusday rules!
