    There are personal difference in tolerance to heat (I suffer in the heat more than many) but some of it is acclimation. You may need to spend some shorter periods of time in the heat not exercising before you spend long periods of the time exercising.

    I recommend googling for "Bikram Yoga heat exhaustion" and reading articles like this:

    Yoga Journal - Yoga Asana Columns - Facing the Heat

    That make suggestions on how to handle the heat. Heat exhaustion is a serious matter, so if you need to get out and cool down, do so.

    (Personally, exercising in those temperatures would be my ideal of hell, but some people really love it.)

    I took bikram for a few months. The first several sessions really suck due to the heat/humidity and so many of the movements making you place your arms above your head or head behind your back-both causing drops in blood pressure. I acclimated after about two weeks.

    Water levels are set via ADH and seem to vary from person to person. Your brain regulates the water to sodium levels via changes in ADH and thus signals to the kidneys to dump or retain water to make the balance correct. Your brain is very sensitive to sodium/water levels. As you drink more water, you dilute the sodium, your brain compensates and dumpes the water back out. If you eat a bunch of salt, the sodium becomes concentrated and your barin signals thirst.

    In general if you are prone to chronic fatigue, faintness or lightheadedness at times, increasing salt levels is one thing physicians suggest.

    eat pickles, raman noodles, chicken noodle soup-all very high in salt and see if you feel better.

    I was at a yoga class where the temperature was 105 degrees (F) and 40-60% humidity.

It's nearly three hours later and I'm still a bit dizzy, I'm surprised I was able to drive home.

    If I were to try this again, how would I retain water? What can I do now, even? I still feel kind of dizzy.
    How much water do you typically drink in a day? And not just on training days.
    I'm not clever enough to have a signature.

    Drink a sport drink like Gatorade in conjunction to water, so like a bottle of each.

    Apple juice + mineral water is rich in elecrolytes.
    If you can get it, try alcohol free wheat beer (recommended by a former sports teacher of mine).

    I agree with water that has a bit more stuff in it. Also, we were taught when you first start drinking the "recommended" amount of water, you have to piss all the time, and you feel waterlogged and stuff.. It takes about 2 weeks for your system to adjust and have a 'breakthrough' of some sort to adjust to the new water intake. Drink a consistent amount of water everyday and stick with it to help your body adjust to it all. Right now it may be thinking you're just giving it too much.. much the way a body clings to food instead of burning it if you don't eat regularly.
