Q: I’m going to a small island for six weeks this summer. There is no Bikram Yoga available at all. Any suggestions as to what I can do so that my return in September isn’t too reminiscent of my very first class? Help!
A: Good news: just because you’re going to a “Bikram-free zone” this summer doesn’t mean you have to give up your practice! Just go to iTunes
and download “Bikram’s Beginning Yoga Class, Vol. 1
” and “Bikram’s Beginning Yoga Class, Vol. 2
” ($9.99 each; volume 1 goes through the Standing Series while volume 2 includes the Floor Series) onto your computer, then practise three times a week – or more, if you like! While it’s possible to recreate conditions in the hot room to some degree by plugging in a kettle (or some other source of steam), you don’t necessarily need the heat to practise; you may not be able to go as deep into the postures, but you’ll still feel great!
