Do you do yoga? Have you done yoga? I had tried it but to be honest with you...I just didn't get it. Perhaps it was my addiction to rushing around and always having to be somewhere that kept getting in the way of my mind/body connection... In fact, my mind just kept telling my body to hurry up. So I decided to do some research on "hot yoga" since it really intrigued me. Doing yoga (which I didn't get) in a hot and humid environment (which I don't like) really seemed ridiculous. But through my research of bikram yoga (hot yoga), I was able to dive a lot deeper into what yoga is and what different types of yoga can do for the body and mind. It's all covered in this guide "What's So Hot About Hot Yoga?" There is information on: different bikram yoga posturess how many calories you can burn in a hot yoga class finding a hot yoga studio and the right yoga instructor which level of yoga class you should go to what to wear to a hot yoga session the health benefits of bikram yoga and so much more... It's true. This non-believer is becoming a student of yoga and may jump into a hot yoga studio very soon.
