Death & Bikram Yoga

Death And Bikram Yoga Kyle Fitzpatrick Los Angeles 1

It’s been a while since I’ve been to Bikram Yoga. I couldn’t tell you the last time I attended a class but my guess would be that I was here over a year ago. Maybe even a few years ago. I haven’t let myself go or anything but going to Bikram became a chore. Getting to the “Silverlake” location was difficult since it is actually in Atwater/Glendale biking there is hard.

The result is a series called Escape To LA and it shows an LA newcomer finding, loving, and adjusting to the city.

But, truth telling: most of the article is bogus but our “expanding” so quickly from outsider money is something to be concerned about. Who is really in control of LA? Do those people actually care about the city? That’s where we see the imminent decline coming from…
