Is sweaty bikram yoga good for you?

You’ve probably heard your yoga instructor, some celebrity, or your next door neighbor wax poetic about the detoxifying and slimming benefits of doing yoga or other exercises in extremely hot, humid, and unventilated environments.

All that sweat carries toxins out of the body and leads to quicker fat loss, the story goes.

This belief has become so popular that something I refer to as “bikram creep,” has taken hold in the yoga and general fitness world, and now completely unrelated activities are being done at 90 to 110 °F.

But is there any truth to this?

In episode 26 of the Raw Food Health Podcast I talk about Bikram Yoga Creep and the physiological side of doing exercise in hot environments.
