I have just started taking Bikram yoga classes. This sounds innocuous. Except, it isn’t. Bikram Yoga is a series of 26 cruelly contorted postures done in succession, inside a super hot, super humid room.
And no, it’s not just hot. The studio is heated to 45 degrees and the humidity is more than 40% at all times.
I cannot actually even touch my toes, let alone do the pretzel type poses. And while everyone is doing yoga on their mats, I am drowning in a pool of sweat, thinking I might vomit into it any minute.
