What is Bikram Yoga and Why is it the Best Yoga for Your Health?
Bikram Yoga is the original form of HOT yoga developed by Bikram Choudhury, a reknowned Hatha Yoga Master. It has become known as the yoga with the most health benefits. The scientifically designed series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises is done in a humid 100+ degree room. The studio is heated to allow for greater flexibility, to promote detoxification through sweating, and to build endurance and create an environment where mental focus is required. Each yoga class is 90 minutes and is exactly the same; this consistency is why the yoga works. The repetition of postures combined with the heat allows for systemic regulation and optimal functioning of all organs, tissues, glands, nerves, systems etc. The strict routine allows students to go deep in to a meditative state, focusing and relaxing the mind, while physically stretching, strengthening, re-shaping and healing the body.
Detox, Relieve Stress, Feel Amazing. A complete mind-body work out.
