Bikram Yoga

Posted on

A few years ago I discovered Bikram Yoga (aka Hot Yoga) and fell in love.  However due to the usual lack of mullah due to being a full time student I could only go every so often, whenever I could take advantage of the new student packages.

To explain what Bikram Yoga is here is the explination off of the Bikram Yoga website

Bikram Yoga is the 26 postures Sequence selected and developed by Bikram Choudhury from Hatha Yoga.

It has been proved and experienced by millions that these 26 postures systematically work every part of the body, to give all the internal organs, all the veins, all the ligaments, and all the muscles everything they need to maintain optimum health and maximum function.  Each component takes care of something different in the body, and yet they all work together synergistically, contributing to the success of every other one, and extending its benefits.

Bikram Yoga can be practiced under the guidance of a certified Bikram Yoga Teacher at one of the affiliated Bikram Yoga studios.

These studios are built in such a way that you always get the proper heating (104F) which help you to do your postures optimally. Bikram calls these studios as “Torture Chambers”.

It sounds a bit crazy at first, and the first couple times you do it you think to yourself “why the hell am I doing this” but then after you leave the class the feeling you get of being cleansed and refreshed is what brings you back over and over again.

So  a co-worker and I have become workout/diet buddies to help keep each other on track so that we can get back in shape.   Both of us have sort of fallen off the exercise wagon  since starting our job and falling victim to hibernation mode.   I’m sure many of you can relate.

But never the less, getting back in shape and healthy again always works so much better when you have a buddy to do it with to help kick you in the butt when you start feeling a bit sluggish!  I feel this should be a mandatory thing, every one should have a workout buddy!!

So we signed up for the new student special, which is a 6 class package, and will be extending it out to 2 classes a week until it runs out.  Then I’ll hit up my old studio to do their new student special Lol  my philosophy right now is to save money for California but also get back in shape the cheapest way possible!

What things do you do to cut back on costs, but still manage to keep up with your fitness routines and hobbies?
