    The temperature is about 105 F degrees and about 40% humidity.

    The room is kept at this temperature or more for the following:

    Keeping the body from overheating (contrary to popular misconception)

    Protecting the muscles to allow for deeper stretching

    Detoxing the body (open pores to let toxins out)

    Thinning the blood to clear the circulatory system

    Increasing heart rate for better cardiovascular workout

    Improving strength by putting muscle tissue in optimal state for reorganization

    Reorganize the lipids (fat) in the muscular structure

    They are usually around 105 degrees, but I know some go up to 120! I am going to my first bikram class tomorrow. Do you love it? Have any tips?
