Bikram Yoga

I’m all for fads. Really. And when it comes to fitness and weight loss fads, I’m at the front of the line. The fad of the moment is Bikram Yoga or, as we tweeters say, #bikramyoga.

I’d done it for a while before I fell pregnant with Nicholas, and started back about 6 weeks ago. I’ve been pushing it, up to 4 times a week (at 90 minutes a session that’s not bad). The real incentive has been to improve my buggered knees (the left in particular), but as the days go by it feels like it’s getting sorer, in an excruciating kind of way, and I’m getting tired.

Sometimes, when words don’t do, some clever person has already put together an apt cartoon.

Amen.

    I’ve been to Bikram once. I managed about 10 minutes of yoga and the other 80 minutes were spent lying on the mat weeping.
