Bikram Yoga is a 90-minute series of yoga postures taught in a heated room to facilitate healing and stretching without injury. Each pose addresses a certain area of the body, imparting specific and powerful health benefits. The class is designed for beginners as well as for those students who have an established yoga practice. Every class is open to first time students.
The postures are done in a heated room so the practitioner can relieve muscle resistance without risking injury. Every blood vessel in the body is dilated due to the warm environment, which makes it easier to stretch tight muscles and extremely hard to pull a muscle. Each posture is taught in a specific sequence of steps or phases, preparing the body for the next step and the next posture. Adhering to the therapeutic series is the key to the powerful healing and miraculous results felt by those who practice Bikram Yoga regularly.
By the end of a Bikram Yoga class, you will have worked every muscle, tendon, joint, ligament, organ, gland, tissue, bone, and cell while systematically moving fresh, oxygenated blood to 100% of the body. These postures work synergistically and cumulatively to put the body back on track and in balance. Bikram Yoga builds strength, balance and flexibility by gently stretching and massaging the spine, muscles, tendons, joints, and all internal organs of the body. Lung capacity is expanded, leading to greater vitality. Bones are strengthened. Joints are opened and lubricated. Muscles are strengthened, toned, and made more flexible. Regular practice of this series of postures results in the healing and repair of injuries and illnesses, weight loss, and mental incapacities such as depression, anxiety, stress and addiction.
"This yoga practice is miraculous in its psychological and physical benefit if you practice with sufficient precision, frequency and intensity."
