As a yoga enthusiast, I've had the opportunity of taking a few classes at Salt Lake City Bikram yoga in Sugarhouse, Utah. "What is Bikram yoga," you ask? It's the "hot" yoga you've heard your friends talk about! The SLC Bikram Yoga website describes it as follows:
Bikram yoga is a challenging series of 26 asanas (postures) designed to systematically stretch, strengthen and restore health to every part of the body.
[It's] twenty-six poses systematically move fresh oxygenated blood to one hundred percent of your body, to each organ and fiber, restoring all systems to healthy working order, just as Nature intended. Proper weight, muscle tone, vibrant good health, and a sense of well-being will automatically follow.
. . . .
The room is heated to warm your muscles, which allows for deeper and safer stretching. The heat also increases the heart rate, giving you a better cardiovascular workout, and promotes sweating, which flushes toxins from the body, leaving you with a wonderful glow.
Why all this talk about Bikram yoga? Well, this week I have the special opportunity to begin Bikram yoga's 30-day challenge, which consists of taking 30 Bikram yoga classes in 30 days. Yikes!! :) I'm excited, but anxious at the same time, and interested to see and feel the results! This promises to be an experience that, as Bikram says, will "transform [my] life and transform [my] body!" Wow!
If you're interested, each Monday I will be blogging about the challenge right here on Tight Wad in Utah. I will also leave daily posts on SLC Bikram yoga's Facebook page. So, stay tuned and wish me luck! In the meantime, feel free to visit the SLC Bikram yoga site if you're interested in learning more, and perhaps join me in this challenge! :)
Right now for Utah residents there's an introductory offer of $20 for 10 consecutive days of unlimited yoga classes! Great deal!!
