Bikram’s Yoga is a series of 26 beginner hatha asanas (postures) suitable for all ages and physical abilities.
The postures are done in the safe environment of a heated room. By the end of a class session, each individual will have worked every muscle, tendon, joint, ligament, internal organ, and gland while systematically moving fresh, oxygenated blood to 100% of the body. The result is restoration of health to all systems. As you increase strength, flexibility and balance in your body, you will be energized, you will revitalize your mind, and you’ll be working on eliminating conditions of stress produced by fast paced lifestyles.
These postures work synergistically and cumulatively to put the body back on track and in balance. This 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.
This 90-minute series begins and ends with a breathing exercise. The same sequence of postures is practiced in a heated room with mirrors. The heat allows for greater depth in stretching and while keeping the body warm prevents injury, speeds up metabolism and facilitates the release of toxins through sweat. The mirrors give you a greater connection with yourself during your practice and also let you correct and improve your own alignment. Done sequentially, the 26 postures are designed to not only tone muscles, improve strength and flexibility, but also realign vertebrae, bones, joints, improve circulation, lubricate joints and with the compression and release of different glands and organs, flush the body, restoring vitality and balance
