What is Bikram Yoga?
Bikram’s Yoga class is a series of 26 postures (asanas) and two breathing exercises (pranayamas), which is suitable for all ages and levels of ability. Each posture stretches and strengthens specific muscles, ligaments and joints needed for the next posture.
Bikram Yoga is the original hot yoga that’s been featured in the press and on television, famous for it’s miraculous healing ability. It is a very specific 90 minute series of 26 yoga postures and breathing exercises taught in 105 degree heat. Each pose is a challenge based on personal abilities; each pose addresses a certain area of the body, bestowing specific and powerful health benefits. The class is designed for beginners as well as for those students who have a regular practice. Every class is open to first time students.
The Bikram method also stimulates the organs, glands and nerves, moving fresh oxygenated blood to 100 percent of the body, making sure that all systems are working at their optimum level. Bikram scientifically designed this 90-minute program to deliver total health through the balancing and strengthening of every system in the body in order to prevent illness, injury and limit the effects of aging. In addition, the series of postures combines skills of concentration, patience, determination and self-control, which leads to increased mental clarity and reduced stress.
Bikram’s Yoga Class is practiced in a heated room to warm your muscles, prevent injury, allow a deeper workout and cleanse the body by flushing toxins. As Bikram says, “Yoga is the only exercise in the world you can do at any age. There is always some posture that will improve your health, mind and soul.”
Yoga’s benefits have been repeatedly observed and documented over time. In a 4-year research project at Tokyo University Hospital during the 1970s, Bikram helped doctors prove that yoga regenerates tissues and thus helps to cure chronic ailments.
