1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Was it Bikram? I was interested until I did some research and learned I would be in an overcrowded room with smelly people getting yelled at by a drill sergeant/instructor. I think I'm sticking to Vinyasa.

    yes, that is about right. no yelling in my class, but a crowded room full of very sweaty people. reminded me a lot of india.

    The girl who cuts my hair swears by it. I used to do Yoga but I found myself watching the clock the whole time, waiting for Shavasina (corpse pose) at the end.

    I have a girl-friend who wants to be hot yoga partners. Would this be advisable, all I hear is you do yoga in a sauna.

    I have nothing but admiration for people who do this. I fear that I would snap in half if I tried.

    I would be in an overcrowded, overheated room with smelly people getting yelled at by a drill sergeant/instructor.
    It's strangely addictive stuff. Love it.

    Seems like one of those trend things that doesn't really do anything extra and will be out of vogue in a year

    Very popular in LA for the past 15 years. Not cool if somebody farts. Some of the Hot Yoga instructors around here are revered like rock stars - their classes are almost standing room only, which can be problematic for Yoga work.

    I've done it twice now, and I think I will continue for a while. it's cool. I do feel ery well stretched out at the end of a session, and very drained, like it is work. mentally resttive, to some extent. I am surprised by the age - most of the people (in my place) are over 40, and not really hot, but I guess that isn't a bad thing. it involves a little more holding positions in strenous poses than I expected.
