The Bikram Diaries

Bikram Yoga.  Unfamiliar?  Let me break it down for you.

105 degrees.

26 postures done twice.

90 minutes long.

No music.

No talking.

No ambient light.

No handstands.

No fun.

However… I do Bikram yoga about twice a month.  Which means I spend $35 a month to do this breed of yoga.  I like to practice at the Bikram Studio in Wicker Park.

Why do I practice Bikram twice a month?  Because there is something to it.  It’s really hard.  It rocks different parts of my body that I don’t use in my normal vinyasa practice and it rocks my mind chatter differently than my vinyasa practice.  And because variety is the spice of life!

Also, one of my best friends in the whole world is a Bikram teacher/practitioner and I’ll get behind anything she loves.
