I'M HOOKED

on bikram.
i've wanted to try bikram yoga for a while now, & i finally have & i love it.
my father-in-law was getting a pass & joined me & my sister-in-law up for the buddy pass promo
(best f.i.l. ever, right? right) i've only been a few times so far, finals were really getting in the way of my bikram time,
but now that those are out of the way, i'm planning/hoping to go so much more. 
bikram truly makes me feel so great. i'm loving it & couldn't be more thankful for my father-in-law thinking to sign me up. i've been going early in the morning & it's a perfect way to start my day. 
if you don't know about bikram, let me tell you.
you practice 26 different poses two times each, in a 105 degree room with 40% humidity
 it's an hour & a half long. 
your entire body gets such an awesome workout/stretch, it's designed to target all joints, muscles and tendons.
this combined with the heat really helps to get into the stretches deeper & with flexibility too. 
plus, you burn about 1,000 calories each class depending on your body type.
it's completely different than other yoga classes i've been to. it's a such a different workout
i feel so rejuvenated afterwards
 & cleansed of any bad toxins that are in my body.
if you've ever wanted to try it, you definitely should. i wish i hadn't waited so long.
if you're in utah, i go to brickyard in lehi & they're doing an awesome $21 for 21 days deal
which is such a steal. & if you've got a friend, there's always the buddy pass.
 if you decide to try it, bring a towel.

  2. I've been so curious about bikram yoga, since I practice just regular asana yoga, but more and more people keep suggesting bikram to me...I guess I'll have to give it a go!

  3. do you have to be flexible to do it? i've always been so interested to try it, but don't know if i can handle the heat!

    1. totally don't need to be flexible, i'm not all that flexible at all. but you definitely get more flexi the more you go & the heat really does help! you really should try it!! & it's completely acceptable to lie down if the heat gets to you in class, especially your first time going, so don't worry!
