About Bikram Yoga: Bikram Hatha Yoga is a 90 minute sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises practiced in a room heated to 105 degrees. Specifically designed to engage the entire body, using heat to stretch deeper, prevent injury and flush unwanted toxins. Each posture stretches and strengthens specific muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints. Stimulating the organs, glands and nerves, this yoga systematically moves fresh oxygenated blood through the entire body, helping to restore all systems to a healthy working order.
Bikram 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 and injury, promote weight loss and limit the effects of aging. The series is dynamic and exhilarating. The series of postures combine skills of concentration, patience, determination and self control that increase mental clarity and reduce stress. The room is heated to warm your muscles preventing injury and allowing for a deep workout unlike any other.
Your certified Bikram Yoga Teacher will ensure that the studio is always properly heated (105F) to help you to do your postures optimally. To become certified, Bikram Yoga Teachers spend 9 weeks immersed in an in-depth study of Bikram Yoga.
The Bikram series is suitable for all ages and levels of ability.
