Bikram Yoga, also known as Traditional Hot Yoga, works the body from the inside out, from the micro to the macro level. Each posture stretches and strengthens the specific muscles, ligaments and joints needed for the next posture.
People of any age and condition can do this yoga. Some students with acute illnesses have been cured of chronic disease like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and chronic back pain as a result of their Bikram Yoga practice.
Many athletes including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and John McEnroe attribute lack of injuries and longevity in their sport to this yoga. Professionals say it gives them mental clarity and increased energy, helping them to excel in their fields. All Bikram Yoga students agree that it helps them look and feel great, lose weight and reduce stress. It is the perfect blend of strength, flexibility and balance.
