I have never heard of hot yoga…but based on Lelise’s response, I’m assuming it has something to do with physical heat?

My dad does it once a week–he seems to really like it a lot.

I love Bikram yoga. I can’t recommend it enough.

I tried Bikram and Hot Vinyasa yoga. The temperature in a Bikram yoga studio is usually 105 degrees. Too hot for me, but Hot Vinyasa yoga is about 80 or so. The heat is supposed to aid in stretching and flexibility. Both are pretty intensive because they require a lot of stamina. It’s fun; enjoy!

Well, I hated every single minute of being in my hot yoga class ( I HATE humidity and I HATE heat)….but, I loved how I felt after the class.  So, it’s a toss up for me.

make sure you are well hydrated! It was recommended not to eat 2 hours before the class., which I would agree with. I think it is a great workout though

I did bikram about five years ago and LOVED it! I was in great shape back then! ha! One of the things i really liked about it was I felt like I was having these mini-goals each class: okay, I didn’t barf and I didn’t pass out! Yay me! It also helped me to…sllloooooow…dooooown…and focus on my mind-body (does that sound cheesy?).

Wear as little as you feel comfortable doing so, be prepared for others to me wearing minimal attire and drink lots of water. 

Give it shot and let us know what you think!

@lilyfaith: my best friend and Maid/Matron of Honor has been going religiously to bikram yoga and she SWEARS BY IT! neither of us are huge “workout” people… so this is a great combo of moderate exercise for us… be sure to keep hydrated! i’m not sure which studio she goes to, but she lives in lincoln park and i know that’s not too far from lakeview… good luck!

p.s. she says her skin has never felt smoother from all of the hydration/sweating/etc.
