I have found a few Bikram yoga blogs super helpful and interesting. It really is inspirational to read other peoples experiences and adventures. I found it particularly reassuring to learn that everyone (EVERYONE!) struggles in class. Here are a few I obsessively read:

Confessions of a Yoga Princess
Ever hear of anyone gaining weight after starting Bikram Yoga? Well, meet yours truly! After about 6 months into Bikram I feel better, my health is better and I am inexplicably addicted in a love-hate way as so many Bikram yogis, however, I have uniquely managed to pack more pounds onto my frame.
When I started, my teachers said, “Oh, you’re going to drop a few pounds, everyone does…” to now just smiling at me confusedly. I’m sure I’ll eventually catch on and drop the weight, I definitely feel it making certain postures more complicated. All that notwithstanding, I am very grateful that I found Bikram and regardless of size, very glad it’s part of my life.
