"Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory."
If you can't stand the heat, then get out of the oven. (Technically, you're not allowed to leave the room until the 90 minute class is completed, but anyway...) Bikram is a variation of yoga that is composed of 26 varied poses and is practiced in a room that is fixed at a temperature of 105°F (≈ 40.6°C) with a humidity of 40%. YEAH, that just maybe HOT AS HELL!!! (though I have yet to visit to make this claim with any true accuracy). The uninitiated can think of it as yoga for TOUGH GUYS!
Yoga To The People is one of the great national purveyors of Bikram Yoga. Some of the benefits of Bikram include added flexibility (which leads to less injuries), weight loss and stress relief. YTTP, as they are known, seeks to keep yoga available to all of the "tough guys" across the country.(How admirable...)
Bikram Yoga is a rewarding challenge. It could be classified as a contact sport between you and yourself..."All Bodies Rise".
