Bikram Original Hot Yoga was founded by Yogiraj Bikram Choudhury. It’s a scientifically designed style of yoga guided by Bikram Choudhury’s trademark dialogue. Consisting of a fixed sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises, it lasts 90 minutes and done in a studio heated to a minimum of 41 degree Celsius to provide a full body work-out.
Sequenced to systematically stimulate the body’s internal organs and glands as well as pump fresh oxygenated blood to all parts of the body, Bikram Original Hot Yoga will also strengthen and tone the muscles helping you to increase your focus and concentration!
The 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises will also help you combat a variety of afflictions – from stress and insomnia to arthritis and back pain – and maintain exceptional health for years to come. Suitable for all levels, Bikram Original Hot Yoga also prevents injuries and aid in the healing of injuries. The heat from the work-out promotes detoxification through sweating and limits the effects of ageing.
