Bikram Yoga is a Yoga type known as “Hot Yoga”. It is consequently named because this Yoga style is designed to be practiced in a very hot room (heated to 37 degrees Celsius). Heat is used in Bikram Yoga in order to reduce the risk of injuries and to help to expel built up contaminants in the body, heat allows you to get into an Asana that you never imagined you can do. Make sure to drink a lot of water previous to and after class so you don’t get dehydrated.

This Yoga style focuses on 26 postures that are performed in a certain order; each Yoga posture is typically performed twice and held for a certain time. The series of poses treats the whole body constructively, building new levels of energy and improving balance vigour and flexibility. Each pose stretches and strengthens your muscles, ligaments and tendons and work on your internal organs while cleansing the cardiovascular system and stimulating the nervous system. Bikram Yoga can help in reducing the symptoms of persistent diseases and injuries and is an admirable preventative and rehabilitative tool.

Bikram Yoga was developed by Bikram Choudhury, this Yoga style is controversial for the reason that Choudhury has copyrighted a number of Hatha Yoga postures.
