I dabble in yoga. I certainly don’t have a regular routine, but when I do go, I love it. However, the particular style of yoga I do is sweaty. Really sweaty. It’s called Bikram yoga, and the room is kept at around 105 degrees, for a 90-minute class. So, as you can imagine, by the end of class everyone is soaked in sweat, and our towels and mats are, too.
