Bikram Yoga is a series of 26 postures including two breathing exercises, suitable for all ages and levels of ability. Each posture stretches, strengthens and prepares specific muscles, ligaments and joints needed for the next posture. The Bikram method also stimulates the organs, glands and nerves, moving fresh oxygenated blood to 100 percent of the body, restoring all systems to a healthy working order.

Bikram scientifically designed his 90 minute program to deliver total health through the balancing and strengthening of every system in the body in order to prevent illness and injury, promote weight loss, and limit the effects of aging. In addition, the series of postures combines concentration, patience, determination and self-control to increase mental clarity and reduce stress.

Everyone can benefit from yoga but the Bikram Yoga series is physically demanding and may not be for everyone. To facilitate stretching and encouraging the body to detoxify itself through sweat, Bikram yoga is done in a heated room with temperatures kept at 38C and an average humidity of 60 percent. This is done to warm your muscles, prevent injury, allow a deeper workout and cleanse the body by flushing toxins out.

Overcoming the heat is often the main problem of new students. Students over the age of 50 and those with serious health problems sometimes find the heat to be more taxing than helpful. Even young, healthy students find the temperature to be a large part of the challenge for the first few classes. Yet at whatever age, an open mind and a determined spirit is no match for any initial hurdles presented by the heat and the journey towards healing the body, mind and spirit can truly begin.
