I went to a bikram class today, and wow it was great. It must be about two or three years ago since I last went and while I expected my flexibility to be poor, what shocked me was how my strength had diminished too. Not good!
It is a quirky studio! The hot room is pretty standard but there's lots of other good stuff going on - nice sitting area with lots of interesting books, a notice board where you can pin your intentions for the week ("Just Be" was one of my favourites). And the changing rooms! Well that needs a photo to be described properly I think.
I have signed up for the two week special ($39) so I am going to go as much as possible over the next fortnight - tomorrow for starters!
