David Does It: Bikram yoga

Posted: Updated:

It may be getting chilly outside, but you wouldn't know it by seeing the sweaty, glistening bodies as they twist and contort at Bikram Yoga West Orlando.

The studio specializes in bikram, or hot, yoga. Classes are held in rooms kept at 108 degrees, and participants are asked not to wear perfume, cologne or deodorant.

"The heat is to relax your muscles so you can stretch safely and get deeply into your postures," owner Maria Canela told Fox 35's David Martin on Monday morning.

"It detoxes the whole body, inside and out."

A participant of bikram yoga can burn up to 1,200 calories per 90-minute class, according to Canela.

Even so, it's "absolutely a beginning yoga practice. Everybody can come," she said. "You're never too old never too sick. There are no age limits. You always benefit from it."

Classes are offered seven days a week. Normally $120 a month for unlimited attendance, Canela is offering Fox 35 viewers an $80 off deal. Go to David Martin's Twitter page to see the deal. For more information on Bikram Yoga West Orlando, visit their website.
