Yoga

So, we watched the one of the episodes of "Dead Like Me", episode 14, and it had a scene in a yoga class. The class was led by the black guy from "Lost", I forget his name. Anyway, the class was full of totally fit scantily clad woman. All women with a male instructor. Of course one of the students(or more than one) had a crush on the instructor.

I expect the class 'proportions' were adjusted for television. Everyone was really hot and sweating by the end of the class. That I didn't expect. I thought yoga was more stretching and such and not so much exercise. Of course, I've never taken yoga, so I'm not sure where my impression was formed.

They were likely doing 'hot yoga' or Bikram style yoga. In other words, doing yoga in a room that's 100F or hotter. It's supposed to help detoxify your body by sweating up a storm, and your body is more flexible in the heat.

There are lots of types of yoga - http://yoga.about.com/od/typesofyoga/a/yogatypes.htm
