curious to see if there are any fellow bikram yogis out there. it's definitely my favorite form of exercise, despite not having had much weight loss from it (though it certainly does get your heart rate up pretty damn high, and [supposedly] burns a lot of calories)--i have, however, gained more strength, muscle, and balance. and aside from the physical benefits, i feel so much healthier, happier, and positive in general. for me, bikram is not only a form of exercise, but a way of life (sorry if that sounds ridiculously corny, but it's true). i currently practice 4-5x/week, and have completed two 30 day challenges.
