Q: Anyone here tried Bikram yoga?

Obviously, since I live in Beijing, any outdoor activity is impossible. Just today the AQI is at 420. So I was thinking of starting Bikram yoga classes, which is yoga done in a very warm room (40 degrees Celsius I think).

Has anyone tried this? Does it work? Any suggestions on where to find this in Beijing?

Bikram Yoga is a system of yoga that Bikram Choudhury synthesized from traditional "hatha" yoga techniques and popularized beginning in the early 1970s. Bikram's classes run exactly 90 minutes and consist of a set series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. Bikram Yoga is ideally practiced in a room heated to 105 °F (40.6 °C) with a humidity of 40%, and is the most popular form of a series of yoga poses done in a heated room, accordingb to Wilkpedia.

My GF is heavily into yoga, and she is already teaching me breathing excercises. I questioned her about this technique, she told me it is very hard to do at home because it reuires a room wiuth controlled temperature and humidity, plus special mirrows and mats. She said that whenever she can get into a saloon having these controlled room, she will do them gladly, because the extra heat makes the body sweat more and release more toxins. I myself have not been expose to it yet, but I feel will be soon because of my asking.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
