Bikram Yoga Retreat
If you're looking extreme sweating caused by bikram yoga flushes and cleanses the body. Give yoga a try! See how it makes you feel, and watch your mind, body, and world open up!

Hi, this is my first reply to a post. Let's see how it goes!

How long have you been doing bikram? I started doing vinyasa yoga for a few months and I absolutely love it- the relaxation, benefits to my back, stretching, etc. However I do not find it to be very aerobic. Do you find bikram to be an aerobic exercise or more relaxation?

Thank you.

Being somewhat a yoga devotee I'd like to weigh in here. The relationship between yoga and weight loss is very complicated. No matter how you label your yoga it is not going to be high on calorie burning and you should always still do other workouts (strength and cardio). However yoga does help mentally, spiritually, physically you sleep better feel better etc. It also can help with emotional eating and body awareness.

Anyone selling "their" yoga for weight loss is not being forthcoming. I have done daily yoga for years and it does not directly impact my weight at all.
