Downtown about to get a whole lot hotter

That's right! Bikram Yoga is moving to the hood!

Never heard of Bikram Yoga? That's okay, it's still pretty new. You're still cool.

Bikram's a dude from ... oh, shit ... safe to say Calcutta who studied yoga forever and then met with all the gurus then a bunch of doctors to figure out how to work every muscle, major organ, and tendon in the body through a series of 26 traditional yoga postures you do in a room heated up to 105 degrees.

Woo-hoo! Sounds like fun, no?

Well it is. Damn hard work and sometimes nearly kills you, yes. But fun. And it WRINGS YOU OUT LIKE YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE.

I, for one, cannot WAIT for the new studio to be done and open for business.

Right now, the only Bikram studio in Albuquerque is near Juan Tabo and Indian School, which is fine if you live near the Heights, but for those of us Campus Kids, that's just too damn far, not to mention that the class takes 1.5 hours, and you have to be there at least 10 minutes early and to shower 10 minutes after (trust me -- you HAVE to shower after this class!), so your little workout actually takes 2.5 hours what with commute time added in. That's TOO hardcore for this hardcore gal. Maybe not for you, rude boy.

So now I can bike from work to yoga and sweat my little heart out (hmmm... mixed metaphor, anyone?)

Come with me in December! Drink lots of water first, okay? And sit down if you feel dizzy, nauseous, or if the room starts going black.
