Thank you for pointing out that Bikram is not the only Yoga in the world. If it was I would practice Tai Chi or Pilates instead. You can keep 105 degree heat to yourself. Bikram instructors pay big money to learn a 26 technique systyem, but Yogi is on to something about that drill sergeant attitude. The teachers are all clones - just like the smell of the rug in a hot yoga studio. They should patent that aroma! I visited a class once and can't get that rotten smell out of my head.
Do you have prenatal Bikram for those who want to end a pregnancy? How about 105 degree heat for seniors who are tired of living? Where's the yoga therapy here? How many students vomit in the parking lot from heat stroke? If I have a terminal disease and want to end it all, I'll sign up before the hospital drains my savings from my family.
Mercy killing is not legal in the US, but an alternative to euthanasia is hot yoga. It's not painless, but if you're weak enough from a terminal illness it should do the trick. Nobody will notice til the end of class anyway. The drill sergeant might bark at you a few times, but that's just a normal class atmoshphere for Bikram (best yoga in the world).
