I just recently got into hot yoga. I was soooo scared to try it before cause I was super concerned about working out in the extreme heat and I had only ever done normal yoga. I went to my first class over a month ago with a friend and now I’m hooked! I got a month pass for $45 that is going to expire next week and I’m super sad about it because to continue with a montlhy membership it is over $100 a month! I cant afford that since I already have a normal gym membership and I do a bootcamp. What are your thoughts on hot yoga? Do you like it? Do you think it is beneficial? I dont think I have ever seat so much in my life doing a classa and I love that about it lol

I meant to write “sweat” but it would not let me edit my post lol

I sweat enough during my regular Vinyasa class and all my life have absolutely hated sweating (which was one of my main reasons for joining the swim team haha), so hot yoga isn’t my thing. I feel like it’s something people either love or hate.
Also, while I’m sure it’s certainly great for your body, you can’t really measure how beneficial a workout is just by the amount of sweat.

Love hot yoga. I always feel so good after a class. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone and I miss it!

I love it as well. I do bikram classes twice a week, so it’s the exact same class every time, and I just push myself to the absolute limit every single time. I feel so worn out afterwards — more so than with any other workout I’ve ever done, and I’ve been athletic my entire life! After five months of it, my body looks better than it ever has before. Total hot yoga addict right here 🙂

I absolutely love it. I used to model internationally and doing hot yoga 5 times a week allowed me to eat whatever I wanted, though I did eat healthy. Now as a older version of me, I’ll get back into it whenever I feel like I’ve been gaining weight.

I’ve never tried it, and I don’t think I will. I don’t think it’s safe for me to do so.

I get nervous when people who have never tried yoga go immediately into hot yoga… You can really hurt yourself!
I can’t do it personally, it messes with my blood pressure, but if I could I’d be in the studio a few times a week!

TheGridMonster: The sweating part took some getting used to! I’m not usually a sweating person but more of a glistener lol but in hot yoga I sweat buckets!!! I totally don’t use that as a measure of a better workout though

I love it! But alas can’t afford it on a regular schedule. Our local studio usually sells “10 class passes” on special for $70 and occasionally I’ll treat myself to one of those. I don’t go often enough to really see results… but I feel great afterwards and really enjoy doing it!

Eh, I’m not a big fan. I don’t like Bikram (no music? scolded for drinking water when it’s not a water break? no thanks!), but I can handle other types of hot yoga from time to time. I much prefer a regular class though. I don’t sweat much, but I never saw the point in sweating on its own. Sure I sweat when I run, but I’m not going to go run in the heat to sweat more!!

Story time! Once upon a time, my friend told me that she had gone to a hot yoga class and it had been fun, and asked if I wanted to go. I said sure, but that the studio she had attended was way too far away for me, so we decided on a location closer to my place.
When we got there, we were 2 of 4 new-comers. As we stood there getting an introduction to the building and how it was fine if all we could do in the beginning was lie on the floor, I looked over and took stock of the situation. My friend and I are both stockier, chubby brunettes, and these two girls that walked in right after us were tall, lithesome, blonde models, or close enough, that I was all “I WILL NOT LOSE TO THESE TWO.”
When we walked into the furnace of a room, I knew I had made a horrible, horrible mistake. I managed to stay standing long enough (maybe 10 minutes?) for one of the blondes to vomit all over herself and run out of the room, at which point all I could do was lie down on the floor and wait for the end to come. Afterwards, as we avoided the puddle of puke and the lakes of sweat on our way out, my friend said that it was completely different from the other studio she had been to.
So no, I don’t do hot yoga.

I love hot yoga. If it weren’t so expensive, I would really go all the time!

sweetchiquita12: Haha! I wish I were a glistener 🙂 Unfortunately, this is what I get instead:

MrsRevolutionize: Ewwwww…gross. That would certainly put me off of hot yoga too! I’ve never seen that happen before, thank goodness!
