Bikram’s Beginning Yoga class is a sequence of 26 asanas (poses) and 2 breathing exercises selected and developed by Bikram from Hatha Yoga. It has been proven and experienced by millions worldwide that these 26 postures systematically work every part of the body, to give all the internal organs, veins, ligaments, and muscles everything they need to maintain optimum health and maximum function. In 90 minutes, the poses work systematically and cumulatively to return the body to a balanced state. The yoga builds energy, stamina and flexibility. It incorporates strength, challenge, gravity, balance and most importantly the tourniquet effect. The Bikram technique allows the stretching, squeezing and massaging of the internal organs, flushing out the cardiovascular system and stimulating the endocrine and nervous systems in order to release any deficient hormones and enzymes. The body is self-regulating and self-adjusting.
Bikram Yoga is dynamic and exhilarating. The room is intentionally warm (approximately 105F) to promote cellular metabolism, detoxification and suppleness of the muscular system, at a great level of safety. The series works equally well for beginning and advanced students. You will be encouraged to challenge yourself to improve and maintain your health, your spine, and in turn your life.
