Welcome to Bikram Yoga: the most effective, challenging and exciting yoga class in the whole world!
Bikram Yoga is a demanding 26 posture (asana) series with 2 breathing exercises (pranayama), done in a room heated to 40C for 90 minutes. The heat allows for safe and deep stretching while simultaneously flushing and detoxifying every single system of the body, from bones to skin, inside out.
Bikram Yoga aids in relieving stress and tension, strengthening and toning muscles, regulating body weight, increasing blood circulation, preventing chronic diseases and limiting the effects of aging, with the intention of restoring the body to its natural health. Classes are suitable for all levels of fitness and experience.
As Bikram says, its never too late, its never too bad, youre never too old, youre never too sick to start from scratch once again, to be born once again."
My experience with Bikram Yoga has been a magical one. I started the yoga in 2003. After my very firs class, I knew that there was something special about this practice and I wondered how I could become a teacher. The intense sweating and challenge of the postures kept me coming back for more. The effects of the yoga were immediate for me. I felt them on all levels: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
In 2004, my sister was diagnosed with a severe brain tumor and it was then that I decided that I needed to do Bikram Yoga Teacher Training. I had heard the remarkable stories of healing through Bikram Yoga and I felt that by teaching my sister yoga, I could help her recover from intense radiotherapy and chemotherapy. I also wanted a deeper knowledge of the yoga and its benefits that had helped so many people already. I attended the Training in summer 2004 in Los Angeles for the duration of nine weeks and it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I take great honor in sharing and teaching this wonderful practice. I encourage anyone and everyone to try Bikram Yoga at least once in their lifetime. Namaste.
