Totally hard on the eyes. The funny thing is they mention burning calories with yoga, whereas yoga is for people who avoid real exercise where they could burn real calories.

A better control would have been a group that sat in a room three times a week without doing yoga, or doing some other exercise like walking. It's possible that the time that would've been been spent on yoga was spent on snacking, for the control group.

A good way to exercise healthily in this season though I think business in Japan goes down in July-August.

any sport, medicine, food, etc. claiming to flush toxins is fraudulent.

hot yoga is okay for people who can cope with the intense heat, but what is the point unless you're looking for a sauna experience?

Fiction writing and programming burns more calories than yoga. But yoga develops flexibility and some muscles. Hot yoga? Umm, it's already difficult, why making it even more difficult?

Hmmm not too sure about that tbh. Reckon it's a pretty 'strategic' spot for those of us who love checking out girls' as*es

At least men are allowed to join. In my area, the yoga classes are only for women.

Used to do yoga when I was a gym member at my old place. It's not nice

doing yoga when the room temperature in my apartment is below 5 deg C in the winter.

The heat may help with flexibility? My wife likes it and in the winter I can’t argue with the idea of working out in a warm room.
