This summer, I'm indulging in what I like to call "the hot yoga experiment." I've never taken hot yoga on a regular basis before, but after I examined the schedules from a half dozen or so local yoga studios and triangulated it with the hours my kids are in camp and/or take naps, it turned out there were exactly two classes each week that fit my schedule and both of them are of the heated variety. When I tell people about the hot yoga experiment, they tend to nod their heads knowingly and say, "oh yes, Bikram." But while all Bikram is hot, not all hot is Bikram. The classes I am taking are vinyasa style, but with the heat on. If you are a hot yoga newbie, here are a couple of tips I've picked up:
