Bikram Yoga in Times Square

Weds. June 20

 Gee, it will only be 95 degrees at 12:30 today for Bikram yoga with about 5000 people in Times Square. I hope I don't get chilly as I am used to 100 degrees. Look for me at Broadway and 43rd St. or check out:

I will be wearing a Hot Yoga Rockaway Beach that Anita Ruderman, my yoga instructor gave us. I'll do anything for a free tee-shirt.

Then I will try to catch a cool movie before heading over to the Change the Stakes meeting at 5:30 where I will sit as far away from everyone as I can.

I did this last year and it was just an amazing experience. These are pics I took from my spot on the sidewalk outside the Marriott. I spent the whole class wishing I were sipping bloody marys in the bar.

Rajashree Choudhury will be teaching. She is married to Bikram -- I took 4 days of hell -- er workshops with them both about 14 years ago. She really is an amazing teacher.

You can read my report from last year: I'm Hot, You're Not: The Longest Day Redux
