    Hey Ladies,

    If any of you are looking to tone up or slim down fast, HOT YOGA is the way to go. It is best to start with an hour session as it is a shock to your body, but it is a major addiction! It is also the only thing that keeps me centered, and i have never done yoga before this. I was a competitive Gymnast so i do not like slow paced things. However hot yoga is just so intense and i love it. I can't say enough about it. You just have to try it and you will understand my Obsession!

    The two most popular Hot Yoga studios are...

    Moksha Yoga - Moksha Yoga : Welcome

    Bikram Yoga - Bikram's Yoga College of India

      that seems really interesting! silly question but does the room end up smelling bad? is it a dry heat or something like a sauna? i loved my yoga class but stopped going because the instructor always expected us to do hand stands and it was really uncomfortable for us newbies!

        The studios are very clean from my experiences. They are hardwood floors and they mop the floor between each class. You have your mat with a towel on it (to catch your sweat and prevent slipping). The rooms are pretty hot and humidity is high but if you are patient and listen to your body you will enjoy the class. As for the smell, i don't find it to smell bad. It is 80 % women so that helps . My Fiance joins me in the classes (he is a professional athlete and he has amazing results from it) and he sometimes smells bad hahahah, but i love him so it is alright!

              i just did this for the 1st time 2 weeks, i could of swore i lost 5lbs afterwards because i was sweating so much...but i didn't. it's intense for sure, not something i would do all the time, but am going to go maybe 1-2x a month now for something different.

              i went to kula.

                I also love it. I'm going tomorrow morning too! There's a thread about Bikram yoga in this section of the board too you can check out. I agree it's a great work out (and I felt I was in pretty good shape from going to the gym 5-6 days per week) and a great way to lose weight. I live in Michigan and there is a Bikram studio in about every other town so I'm sure you'll be able to find one near where you live. Good luck and have fun!

                  I love Bikram! I used to live in San Francisco where competition brought prices down, it was like $50 a month unlimited, now I am in the burbs and each class is $12....ouch...really adds up.

                  And yes it does get stinky sometimes! lol...but you won't care when you feel oh-so-good. Next step, convince the boy to come along with me...
