As the founding chief executive officer of Darkstore, Lee Hnetinka provides third-party shipping services to consumers who are eager to receive their favorite brand-name products by mail as quickly as possible. Outside of the professional environment, Lee Hnetinka enjoys practicing Bikram Yoga.
A specific form of “hot yoga,” Bikram yoga dates back to the 1970s, when Bikram Choudhury first popularized it in California. This patented practice involves repeating 26 poses in cyclical sets over the course of a standard 90-minute class.
Most Bikram yoga classrooms are heated and kept at relatively high humidity. The temperatures of these classrooms often reach as high as 105 degrees Fahrenheit and humidly levels are typically set at around 40 percent.
Advocates of Bikram yoga have reported deriving many distinct benefits, including improved blood and oxygen flow, increased flexibility, and enhanced weight loss. Although most scientists insist that most toxins are filtered out of the body by the liver and kidneys rather than through sweating, Bikram practitioners often report health benefits from sweating out various contaminants.
