What is Bikram yoga?
Bikram yoga is a 26 posture sequence that was developed by Bikram Choudhury from Hatha yoga. Hot yoga has been proven to work every part of your body. Providing all your internal organs, veins, ligaments, and all your muscles everything they need to keep them healthy and in maximum function. Each posture caters to a different part of your body.
Bikram yoga is practiced in a studio that is kept at a 105 degrees. The "studio" in Bikram is referred to as the "torture chambers". The purpose for hot yoga is that it helps flush away all the waste products & all the toxins of all the glands and organs of your body. It also brings nourishment to every cell in your body so that they can perform there function and keep your body healthy. Throughout the class you will sweat (some more then others) but this is good. This means that impurities are being flushed out the body through the skin.
