Question: Is Bikram Yoga too focused on the Physical? Is it a dominantly physical practice?
Answer: Well….some people do say, “Yes.”
I have heard it over and over. Things like: “They are so focused on their bodies.” Or: “those mirrors – they are so vain.” “Competitive”. Or: “You can’t possibly go within when you have all of that heat and sweat and light.”
My response to these answers is that 1) they are coming from the outside looking in, making a judgment without experience.
