I have been having an on-off love affair with Bikram yoga for 8 years now. Lasting longer than many of my other relationships, Bikram is reassuringly unchanging in it’s postures, though currently slightly more posturing in it’s devotees than the rabel of sweaty hippies I started out with.
Jessie my best friend and her husband Roody have two schools in Brooklyn and her Dad Harvey co-owns two in London, so it truly is for me a family affair…
What do I love about Bikram: the North London school is only a block away from the pink tower where I live, the clear headed buzz at the end of the class, stretching my body (as I am doing more aerobic work, Bikram is making me supple again) and checking out the narcissistic hotties while they sweat!..
What do I hate about Bikram: it can give me spots – which is meant to be an unusual side-effect, but hey it’s the one I have and it’s not cheap.
