Bikram Yoga is a demanding series of 26 postures and two breathing exercises 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 practiced in a very hot room, so be prepared to sweat and to work hard. Why the heat? It warms your muscles, and allows for a deeper workout and cleanses the body by flushing out toxins.
Designed by Bikram Choudhury this 90-minute program stimulates the organs, glands and nerves, moving fresh oxygenated blood to 100 percent of the body, restoring all systems to a healthy working order. It can also promote weight loss and limit the effects of aging. In addition, the Bikram series of postures combines skills of concentration, patience, determination and self-control, that increase mental clarity and reduce stress.
