    The Body Is Your Temple. Keep It Pure And Clean For The Soul To Reside In

    The first time I remember playing in my head the words of a friend who had convinced me to try it: "Nothing is more relaxing than Yoga..you will see" I have to admit..I was feeling everything BUT relaxed...and the next morning..I wanted to drive over to my friends and express...

    "Hot Yoga": A Love Story

    A few short weeks ago I turned 46. I won't say that I was freaked out, but I was a tad "concerned", let's say. I'm one of those lucky ones you'd hate - I've never had a weight problem and I look younger than I am. Blame it on genes, because I've not done anything to...

    Bikram Yoga Changed My Life

    I flirted with Bikram a few times before I really started to practice.  First when I moved to California I practiced for maybe a month, then a couple years later I went to 2 maybe 3 classes.  I always left the room. October 1, 2009,  I had recently decided to reclaim my life...

    Sylph Is Relaxed???

      I have been trying (in vain) doing yoga at home, following a DVD. The moves and postures are easy enough to follow; but somehow I am not getting what it is I am supposed to get. Heck, I did not even know what it is I needed to get. I was just not grasping the whole...

    Finding The Perfect Clothing

    I have been practicing bikram for a year now and I'm on a constant search to find the perfect clothing. I have switched from lululemon and athelta and liked them both. I am now at home with http://www.mikayogawear.com where their clothes are great for the sweat and they are...

    Amy's Story

    I set out three years ago as an athlete to round out my routine and try something new... what I found was a whole different world. When I started my practice I pushed and pushed to the limits and trained to exhaustion. I felt like I had to be super woman and do everything 100...

    I Pee In My Shorts During Bikram Yoga

    I can not stop peeing in my shorts whilst practicing Bikram Yoga! It always happens at the same time when we finish the standing sequence and move to the floor postures. No matter how much or how little I drink prior to class (Because of this situation, I usually take my last...

    26 Postures & 2 Breathing Exercises

    Bikram Yoga has revitalized my body and mind and, perhaps, saved my life.  An average of 3 classes a week over the past two years is beginning to overcome decades of slow, continuous and mindless abuse of my body.  It wasn’t my objective, but I have lost 20 pounds...

    I've been attending yoga classes

    for almost three years, and enjoy them a lot. Last fall a guy in my yoga class at the gym asked me if I had ever tried Bikram yoga, and invited me to attend a class or two at another location. I was a lot nervous about trying it, but it was awesome! It's such a great workout...

    Remember taking my first class.

    Being cool outside. Than stepping into the room. My first class I just about died. Looked like I stepped out of the shower after class. It's worth it in the long run.

    I've been practicing Bikram Yoga regularly

    (4-5x/week) now for over a month. In the relatively short amount of time I learned my body can do all sorts of amazing things. I'm kind of kicking myself in the rear for not taking it up sooner as I was practicing at home with very little progress. The home DVD's provided me...
