Bikram Yoga, Yes? No?

I have some serious back issues and tried “hot” yoga a while back.  I noticed a serious difference in the way my body felt after the first two times. Then they had problems with the temperature-it was going over the “normal” temp of 105 F and 40% humidity. This was bad and made me feel like I was going to die.  I didn’t go back.

Well, it is a year later and the yoga studio is about a year older which means they have probably worked out the kinks in the temperature. And so, I am thinking I should give it another try. I have a few concerns. My friend that accompanied me noticed her skin seemed to have aged. I don’t need my skin aging any faster than it already does. The other concern is that it is expensive!  I guess I shouldn’t cry about the cost though. After all, can you put a price on your health?

Here are the poses. I guess I could do them in my living room to save money...
