So as I said earlier, I’m looking to try some new things and one of the things I want to try most is Bikram Yoga, also known as “hot” yoga. This type of yoga is generally done in a room with the temperature set at 105. While it does have different poses than traditional yoga classes, it has the same structure- a focus on stretching and focusing inner strength/stillness.
I’m super excited because I’ve signed up for a beginner’s week pass (unlimited yoga for 1 week for $20). I called and spoke with the instructor and got even more excited to learn that she has lupus. I know, sounds weird to be excited about lupus, but I think she understands where I’m coming from and she was very interested to hear about my RA.
Here are a couple of articles I read-
