Can You Transform Your Whole Life in 60 Days? Part I

My bra's too tight. Is that cellulite on my biceps? I might be having a heart attack. And why does everybody in here have a tattoo?

She's 80 pounds overweight, divorced, out of work, and deeply in debt. She needs a physical and spiritual overhaul. Can 60 days in a Bikram hot-yoga studio really undo years of damage?

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.

It's never too late, You're never too old, never too sick to start over again. This thought drives me back into the 105-degree room day after day. Page Williams hoped the 60-day yoga challenge would change her body, her mind, and her life. It did - in ways she never expected.

Last month Paige Williams - overweight, divorced, out of work and in debt - embarked on the 60-day Bikram challenge in hopes of turning her life around. This month she writes about the final 30 days of her journey.

My 15 minute yoga sculpting workout

Jenny McCarthy has always been known for her knockout body. So when she found herself with a little extra jiggle last year, she tried Bikram yoga, a series of 26 poses performed in a 105-degree room. "I'm now doing it three or four times a week," says Jenny. "And I'm firmer, leaner, and more flexible than ever before."

The key to Bikram's success is its pace, says Jenny's go-to instructor, Rob Manosca, owner of Bikramm Yoga Jacksonville in Neptune Geach, Florida. "You hold poses for up to 1 minute," he says. "Your muscles have to contract that entire time, which really challenges them." Do these moves several times a week and experience an om-my! moment every time you look in the mirror.

New NFL Training Methods

Forget standard weight training, today's NFL players are using new and unorthodox workout and recovery strategies

You wouldn't expect burly guys to love Half Moons and Half Tortoises. But Bikram is no standard yoga. This athletic variation of the practice is 90 minutes of hardcore stretches performed in a 105-degree room with 40% humidity. Bikram forces participants to simultaneously stretch and work on their balance, improving blood flow, and building strength and flexibility while also cleansing the body of toxins. No wonder the Pittsburgh Steelers added hot yoga as optional workouts years ago. And according to Cleveland Browns wide receiver Braylon Edwards, Bikram is "the way to go" to increase the stamina needed for this position. "I couldn't last 20 minutes, at first. You really have to be mentally strong [to do it]." He's since learned how to improve his breathing techniques.

Is It Hot Yoga Or Just Balmy?

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.

I am a conscientious but nondenominational exerciser, and coming to Bikram (a.k.a. "Hot") Yoga began more as a scheduling convenience than devotion to its unvarying regimen of 26 poses (asanas), each performed twice and held for what can seem like forever over the course of the nearly two-hour class.

Demi Moore's Steamy New Workout

Demi Moore's eternally youthful looks are a hot topic in real life, and now she plays a sexy suburban mom who's the envy of the neighborhood housewives in the big screen drama The Joneses. At the film's Hollywood premiere last night, the 47-year-old actress told us she looked hot because she's turned up the temperature on her workout routine. "My husband and I have taken up Bikram yoga," Moore said. "But it wasn't until I filmed a scene in the movie where my character talks about 'hot' yoga that I realized why I've been doing all that sweating!"

Power crunch: why this soprano likes her yoga hot

Next month, soprano Measha Brueggergosman brings her North American tour to Toronto and Vancouver. But when she's not on stage, you'll probably find her at the yoga studio. She spoke about her hot yoga regime from Madrid, where she is performing in Kurt Weil's Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny.

My goal : "For me, yoga creates a healthy relationship between mind and body."

My workout : "I graduated from Bikram yoga teacher training spring this year. In my regular practice I do two days on, one day off, but I've recently started the advance series, the next postures of the continuation of the full expression of the beginning series. Now instead of class being 90 minutes and 26 postures, it's two and a half hours, with 90 postures."

Mr. Hot Yoga: How Bikram Choudhury changed the way we exercise

At first, I thought I had happened into the wrong hotel room.

The man at the door was dressed in a cream-colored silk zoot suit and shirt with contrasting black collar and cuffs, jeweled cuff links, an American flag tie tack pinned to his swirly black tie, gold loafers and white fedora, with his longish black hair peeking out from the back.

This is the man who "invented" hot yoga?

I had expected a swami in flowing robes. Instead I found a man who looked like he was part of Michael Jackson's entourage.

"I'm in show biz. I entertain people," Bikram Choudhury said during an interview before presenting a lecture at Rice University. "It's a very boring subject. Why do you want to pay money to go to a hot room and torture yourself? I have to make it a little interesting."

Kim Geneux : How has Bikram Yoga Changed Your Life?

Sometimes, life throws a wrench in your best laid plans. More importantly, sometimes things that happen prior to the wrench which unexpectedly prepare you, in some way, shape or form, for whatever life throws at you. Bikram Yoga prepared me for my "wrench".

I have been lucky in the sense where I was always thin without even trying. I ate whatever I wanted and was fortunate enough that I did not even have to worry out working out. When I turned 40, that all changed. I slowly started packing on the pounds. It was a slow kind weight gain and I never really thought it was all that bad, although I had gained approximately fifty pounds. I come from a family where heart disease took the lives of my both my parents and maternal grandparents so in March of 2009, I decided it was time to do something about it before it ballooned out of control. I began a sensible diet and daily bicycling regiment and managed to lose 45 pounds by October of the same year.
