Two nights ago I ended up going to a Bikram yoga class in San Jose, CA:
Definitely more difficult than I expected. I also was looking for a kind of calming/relaxing experience… nope. A very strict (for reason) instructor constantly corrects and gives instructions from the first all the way to the last of the 90-minute session. I felt like the yoga postures themselves were not very difficult, but rather the temperature. It felt like high school football camp at UNLV in the Summer without any of the hard work… just the scorching “please don’t black out” heat. Personally I didn’t feel at all more loose or relaxed than traditional yoga.
Anyone else try this yet as a “recovery tool”? Any better experiences? (perhaps it was just my class, or even just me for that matter)
