A bit About Bikram Yoga
Bikram Yoga is one of the most popular yoga across the United States and rapidly gaining popularity around the globe as well, it’s been here since 1970s. The main benefits of bikram yoga are weight loss. Another chief advantage is mental well being, since people who practice Bikram are required to disconnect from everything and focus on their breathing.
Bikram Choudhury (born February 10, 1946) is an Indian yoga teacher and the founder of Bikram Yoga, a form of hot yoga performed in a series of 26 hatha yoga postures done in a "hot" environment. The 105 degree Fahrenheit heat in which Bikram yoga is practiced is, according to Choudhury, meant to mimic the climate of India.
The 26 poses (asanas) of Bikram yoga is largely tied up with a set of breathing exercises (called pranayama). Each of the asanas must be repeated twice and each round of performance must be executed for about 30 seconds before moving onto the next set of poses. By incorporating together the postures with proper breathing methods, it is known to deliver the best results.
Many bikram yoga practitioners and experts believe that during performance of the hot yoga exercises, the muscles in your lungs are stretched out as well. This enhances the lung's capacity for holding and absorbing oxygen, while also improving blood circulation in the process.
Note: Most yoga experts advise that you learn about how heat is generated in the yoga studio where you are going to hold hot yoga sessions at. It is important to question the air quality of the room since there are several yoga studios that recycle air instead of pre-heating the room. This results to the depletion of the oxygen level in the room that can lead to air toxicity and carbon dioxide poisoning.
Bikram Yoga can be practiced at any age or a person on any stage of fitness level. Even the ones who do not have much flexibility in their body can opt for this style of exercise and live a healthy life.
