Bikram Yoga

Some like it hot!

Bikram Yoga is…steamy.

Bikram Yoga is a style of yoga founded by Bikram Choudhury that includes an unchanging series of 26 postures performed in a room heated to 105 degrees with 40% humidity.

Bikram’s theory is that the heated room allows for deeper stretching, injury prevention, stress relief, and detoxification. Bikram yoga emphasizes asana and pranayama, like many types of yoga, but incorporates heat. It focuses on expanding lung capacity and causing the heart to pump extra, reoxygenated blood to the muscles and organs. The influx of this freshly charged blood is thought to eliminate bacteria, virus and toxins in the blood.

There are no inverted postures in Bikram yoga, unless you are in a master class. Bikram felt that most beginners could not safely do inversions, and that other poses provided the same benefits as inversions.
