Description

Benjamin Lorr walks into his first yoga studio on a whim, overweight and curious. A run-in with a competitive yoga champion means his simple desire to tone up soon transforms into obsessive training for a national championship. But this is Bikram Yoga, distinguished from more conventional forms by extreme heat, an overt, almost masochistic focus on pain, and the rabid materialism of its founder, the enigmatic Bikram Choudhury.

Hell-Bent
is a look at the science behind a controversial practice, a story of greed and corruption, and a mind-bending tale of personal transformation that will change the way you view both yoga and the inspirational potential of the human body.
