Bikram Yoga - Tried it?

I've actually never participated in yoga but my friend convincingly brought me along -

You are placed in a room that is preheated to 105 degrees then doing yoga poses.

it was tough! the biggest challenge was controlling your breathing so you wouldn't run out of the room. Expect to sweat like a pig. Classes run about 1.5 hours.

you feel great after.

Have done yoga, strength training yoga, and bikram. Personally didn't find any huge benefits from the heat of bikram and the nasty stench of the class outweighed the little "extra intensity" I got from the poses.

Just my two cents. Regardless, I'm sure it's great for your skin/pores/clearing out toxins.

The added flexibility contributes to lifting

I haven't tried regular yoga yet; I would believe it would be better to focus more on poses not just breathing.

Does yoga get you in shape or is it more of a meditative thing?

I do it every now and then. It's surprisingly pretty difficult, with the poses and heat combo. Feel good after, but not something I can do every week. The girls that do it are hot though. Makes it somewhat worth it, but 15 dollars per session here...fvck that.

i've done it - it's easier than other forms of yoga - ashtanga, for example, except for the heat

oh, and in miami, the girls are usually wearing thongs and bikini tops which isnt bad either

It's easy to talk sh!t about yoga if you've never tried it. No matter what type of exercise you're into, it'll help with your flexibility, recovery, and it can be relaxing.

With that said, my main problem was getting bored--I was doing it at home solo. I definitely need to go to a class. At least that way all the girls in yoga pants will keep my attention.

All of this. I love the people who come in w/ the stereotype of a hating on a guy doing yoga. It is a phenomenal workout and does a sh!t ton for your overall performance as an athlete, there is a reason pro athletes incorporate it in their routines.

There are so many types of yoga as well. You have your hot/workout yoga that kicks your ass and you don't even move out of the area of the mat on the floor. Then balance postures and stretching for incredible core strength and flexibility. I really have to get back into it.
