30 Bananas a Day!

Stay away. Stay with yoga where you can breath fresh air. Practise outside or in open air studios so you aint filling your lungs with farts, perfume, air conditioned heat and everyone else's detox.

 

I made a photo about Bikram.

LOL, I'd never do this.

Hahahahahahaha.

Thats pretty nasty when you think about it. 

I can't agree more.  I went through yoga teacher certification about 5 years ago and my guru had nothing but bad things to say about Bikram...

 

When you're all hot and steamy, you can push farther, but also get injured easily without realizing it. 

 

Gross
Well ventilated studio is key! If you're doing Bikram yoga properly, you can be outdoors in winter and still work up a sweat.....
haha this makes me a little nauseous!

Mate, I love the heated room but I'm a heat nut, so I'll keep doing it - especially in winter. Hell I wish it was hotter! As for being in an enclosed room, it's not really that much different to being in most aerobics classes or rpm, thats the worst as peoples butts are always facing someone :) 

And from my experience, gym peeps tend to be more smelly than yoga peeps.

But of course, exercising outside in clean non city air is always best.

I ruined my summer doing Bikram by reinstating an old groin injury.  Now I can only swim which is nice but I miss running and it's taking FOREVER to heal.  I also agree on breathing everyone's junk...they would do this breathing exercise at the end and it made me a little nauseous to realize the stale stank I was taking in

I love the grouping and order of the poses as well. And I have found the heat to be very relaxing, it feels like moving a warm bath :)

However, I've never been in a really crowded room when I've attended class. Mostly my experience has been in much smaller workshop settings. I don't think I'd like the towel next to towel experience very much!

Like you, Zoe, I primarily practice at home ( I have various dvds and a couple of taped sessions to listen to) and I never get the heat anywhere near the heat in an official Bikram class. I just make sure to turn off the air conditioning and maybe run a small portable heater to take the chill off the room.

At certain times of the year I practice outside and if the temp is right I get that warm bath feeling as well as the fresh air.

When I practice consistently, my body is the most fit and toned it gets. I look leaner, taller, and nothing makes my legs look longer than Bikram!

Do I wanna look like that?

Go to a studio that isn't overcrowded and has solid (not carpeted) floors. You don't have to be in someone else's air-space. Perfumes are discouraged and I've never smelled farts.

 

I think Bikram yoga is one of the best things I've ever done for my body. I love the heat!

Yeah the Asthanga community also heat up rooms and I never understood how they think that stale air is good for breathing. Air is a very cleansing medium as is water by itself. So doing breathing while doing Asanas is a great idea and concept. But since it is so important, then why do it with such an unclean air. Does not make sense.
I just walk to the nearest shady tree and do my sivananda series in 105 degree heat. This Texas heat is good for something....go to class a few times, learn the poses, then do it at home where you can deeply meditate in corpse pose afterwords without smelling peeps. Don't forget to hydrate during as well!
