Quoting ♥Love♥:" If you have tried hot yoga, did you like it? Would you recommend it? Why or why not? I really want to ... [snip!] ... it help you lose weight? Id appreciate any advise you have about it! edit: may be a post and run, computer battery is dying"
I DIED in hot yoga. I love regular yoga, so figured it would be an awesome way to lose a couple extra pounds. Yeah, no. I'm not a big heat person. I died the first time I went into a sauna. I literally started to hyperventilate. Not cool.
So if you want to feel like you're doing yoga in a sauna, go for it. As for losing weight, I didn't find yoga did a ton for me. I use it more to center myself and to keep myself lose for the rest of my work-outs, rather than as a work-out in itself.
