Are you trying to decide whether hot yoga, also known as Bikram, is right for you? Some of your favorite celebrities use hot yoga to help them stay in shape and get in touch with their spiritual side.
Credited with pioneering the popularity of Bikram yoga, Aniston has been practicing for more than five years. She was introduced to hot yoga by her trainer who knew that running on the treadmill wasn’t the most beneficial form of exercise for the young star.
Nobody gets to the age of fifty without their body noticing. But, Madonna has managed to elude Father Time by practicing Bikram yoga. She turns to hot yoga as a form of spiritual exercise and as a workout routine. It helps her stay in shape and keep her mind and spirit just as strong as her body.
Lady Gaga has cited Madonna as one of her major influences and idols. Perhaps that is why she also practices Bikram yoga regularly. She claims hot yoga helps her get more sleep and stay hydrated.
George Clooney has often turned to Bikram yoga as a way to lose the pounds he gained for a major role. He is known to be a disciplined yoga devotee and can be seen taking 90 minute Bikram yoga classes whenever he has time in between shoots.
McCarthy also credits Bikram yoga with helping her lose weight after she gave birth to her son. She lost more than 60 pounds and became so dedicated to hot yoga that she built a studio in her garage so she could practice more often.
