The teacher wants me to make a Japanese ham sandwich. To my knowledge, I’ve never seen a Japanese ham sandwich, but as I understand it, I’m to stand bent with my face to my shins and chest to my thighs in perfect vertical union—I am the sandwich.

The parking lot outside my health club is, as always, dog eat dog, and by the time I find a spot, I’m sure I’ve lost out on prime classroom positioning. I may end up next to the Grunter, which would, I have to say, harsh my mellow. But in the spirit of the yogic tradition I choose not to view my exasperated state as a negative thing. Instead, I congratulate myself for my good judgment in getting to this yoga class on a Sunday morning at the godless hour of 9:15.


Attending your first hot yoga class can be a bit daunting. I still remember my first class at evolation Tampa…. I had no idea what to expect and I showed up in a totally-inappropriate-for-hot- yoga outfit, no water, and no towel. I spent most of my first class confused and uncomfortable… but fell in love with the practice anyway.

Hot yoga uses traditional yoga poses in a specially designed studio heated to minimum of 105 degrees Fahrenheit and kept at 40 per cent humidity throughout the 90-minute class. The practice consists of a specific series of 26 traditional hatha yoga poses. Hot yoga founder Bikram Choudhury believes that that practicing yoga in a heated room helps to ease muscles and prevent injury when stretching.
