    yes once... the class was filled with sweaty girls bending and flexing in weird positions, wearing next to nothing too... However, I honestly felt winded by the heat and the holds we were doing and left feeling really weak and dehydrated. As much as I wanted to, I didnt go back.

    Sounds pretty hardcore. Last time i tried yoga i got yelled at :wtc: I think there is a bikram yoga studio here in torrance.

    My ex-gf is training to be a teacher right now. Are you doing any other forms of yoga?

    :werd: Doing all those poses in that kind of heat left me dizzy and really dehydrated. Didn't seem like it was very beneficial. :dunno:

    Tried it once, never going back, and furthermore, the whole place smells like my hockey bag.

    I used to do it in Encinitas. Its very challenging and a great workout. You can drink water while you do it so being dehydrated is unnecessary. I would recommend it.

    What a jackass yoga trend.

    When the form of yoga you're practicing is in litigation for trademark and copyright rights, you know you've just been had.

    If you only have 1-2 hours per day to work out, I can think of a million other ways to spend that allotted time that will be more productive than yoga.

    Target has a 10 for $10 sale on Poptarts.

    That IS what you're talking about, right?

    People who practice it, swear by it, but its definitely not the best one out there. I know a lot of people who started with bikram and moved on to either ashtanga or vinyasa flow, which is much more rigorous and don't worry...you'll sweat. Just don't practice in air conditioning because it keeps your muscles cool.

    Do a search for vinyasa flow classes in your area and check it out. Most places don't offer ashtanga classes because its much more serious and strict.
