Hot YogaHot Yoga, or Bikram Yoga, is a series of poses done in room at the temperature of 90 to 100 degrees. A vigorous yoga session at this temperature promotes profuse sweating and makes the body very warm, yet at the same time, enhances flexibility and reduces stress.
Bikram yoga’s aim is toward the general well being of a person. The heated studio facilitates deeper stretching, injury prevention, and stress and tension relief. This type of yoga stimulates and restores health to every muscle, joint, and organ of the body. Yoga instructors believe yoga is a way for a person to really come connected with their inner self and the number one stress reliever. Yoga heals and challenges us and whether it is hot yoga or traditional yoga, all yoga will make you a stronger individual on the inside, but on the outside as well.
Hot yoga consists of 26 poses or “Asanas”, including the Pranayama Series, which consists of standing breathing deeply, and the Tadasana, which is the tree-standing pose. Bikram Choudhury created hot yoga and his main objective was to relive stress and improve the wellness of others.
Hot yoga is practiced by all people of all ages. It is a good way to relieve everyday stress and it also releases toxins. I found that after I took the class, I concentrated better in school and just overall felt better about myself.
