What is hot yoga?
We teach the original method of Bikram yoga (also known as Bikram hot yoga or the authentic hot yoga), which is a series of 26 postures and two breathing exercises done in a specific order, designed for our cultural problems of stress, overeating, bad posture, and aggressive lifestyles. This sequence of yoga postures and breathing exercises is selected and developed from Hatha (physical) yoga. This authentic yoga technique and series of fixed poses brings better health to anyone willing to try it.
Hatha yoga is a 5000-year-old science. It has been proven and experienced by people worldwide. Soon you too, can attest that it is the best way of improving the body and the mind.
How does it work?
The body is naturally self-regulating and self-healing. It just needs to be boosted when it is out of balance. Bikram yoga provides this boost by gently stretching, squeezing, and massaging the internal organs, spine, muscles, tendons, and joints. It flushes out the cardiovascular system, and stimulates the endocrine, nervous, and reproductive systems. Toxins are eliminated through the lungs, skin, and organs. The central nervous system is both energized and soothed. The lymphatic system is flushed out and the immune system is built up. Bikram yoga also acts as preventative maintenance. Once your body and mind are in balance, you must continue coming to yoga class! The practice will keep you looking and feeling wonderful, so that you can use your body and mind to enjoy your life!
