My husband has been practicing Bikram Yoga for many years. After a few starts and stops I started my Bikram Yoga practice this past April, and it doesn't resemble anything similar to what is depicted in this month's Details magazine: The Overheated, Oversexed Cult of Bikram Choudhury. After reading that article I suspect millions of young men will be signing up for teacher training for a chance to meet the women.

My husband and I are sensible people. We don't really think of Bikram Choudhury (the founder of our yoga practice) to be anything more than a man that invented a great 90 minute yoga practice. Our studio teachers like to call him our yoga guru, and some of them think of him as a rock star. No. Normal people like us have to sometimes ignore the Kool Aid drinking crowd.

I believe Bikram Yoga is an excellent mind/body workout and I think everyone should try it, which is why I did like this one quote in the Details article:

"Stick with it. Soon you won't ask yourself why you do it. You'll ask yourself why everyone else doesn't."
