Also called: hot yoga a form of yoga in which traditional exercises are performed at high temperature and humidity
[C20: named after Bikram Choudhury (born 1946), Indian-born US yoga instructor]
My definition of Bikram yoga? Sweating like a pig in a boiler room while trying to contort your body into positions it doesn’t want to go. All while a teacher drills instructions to help you tweak this, twist that, make yourself into a Japanese ham sandwich.
And I’m enjoying it.
I indulged in a Groupon offer that came into my inbox for 10 sessions for $20. At $15 for a single drop in class, this was one heck of a deal. I’m 3 classes in and while I’m no perfect twig or bow or ham sandwich, pushing myself for 90 minutes in the heat and humidity feels good. I leave the room feeling accomplished, cleansed, and relaxed.
Then I stop at Arby’s on the way home.
I’m more of a roast beef sandwich, I guess.
