Not quite Bikram

I fairly regularly take a Sunday morning yoga class at the studio near my house. It is an intense Vinyasa Yoga class, which I just love (and hate).

I didn’t realize that Sean actually cranks up the heat for class until today. After class I asked him what the temp is during class. He told me he likes it between 75 and 80. I asked him what the temp in Bikram Yoga is. He said, usually between 85 and 95. Ouch.

I am not sure how many calories I burn during 90 minutes of Sean’s class. But I am sure it is significant. After class today I was very hungry.

    I went to Bikram with a friend last weekend and she pointed out the thermostat (I’d never noticed it). 120 degrees, if you can believe it. We sweated our butts off! (I wish I meant that literally! 😉 )
