What is Bikram Yoga?
Bikram Yoga is a dynamic form of yoga which consists of a sequence of 26 asanas performed in an environment heated to 40°C and 40% humidity. This type of yoga was created by Bikram Choudhury and is based on the practice of Hatha Yoga, with the addition of a strong component of movements and perspiration. It is known for its many beneficial health effects, including stress reduction, posture improvement, injury prevention and pain reduction. Additionally, regular practice of Bikram Yoga helps improve strength, flexibility, and endurance.
Why in a hot room?
Practicing in a warm environment increases flexibility and helps relax muscles, making it easier to perform the poses. Also, developing profuse sweating during practice helps detoxify the body and improve circulation. The yoga room is heated to protect your muscles and allow for deeper stretching. The heat reduces the risk of trauma during the practice, helps heal previous injuries and prevents new ones by making us more flexible. In addition, heat increases heart rate promoting better cardiovascularity, improves strength and muscle tone by softening the collagen around the joints, thus increasing range of motion.
Yoga not only works the muscles, but the deeper tissues, glands and internal organs.

It’s important to want to improve, but remember that the yoga practice is a “journey” to be traveled at the speed that suits you best.
