about bikram yoga
Bikram Yoga is a challenging series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises, suitable for all ages and all levels of ability. Each posture stretches, strengthens, and prepares specific muscles, ligaments, and joints needed for the next posture. The Bikram method also stimulates the organs, glands, and nerves, moving fresh oxygenated blood to 100 % of the body, restoring all systems to a healthy working order. Bikram Choudhury scientifically designed this 90 minute program to deliver total health through the balancing and strengthening of every system in the body in order to prevent illness and injury, promote weight loss and limit the effects of aging. The series of postures also improves concentration, patience, determination and self-control to increase mental clarity and reduce stress. Bikram Yoga is done in a heated room to warm your muscles, prevent injury, allow a deeper workout and cleanse the body by flushing toxins.
the history of bikram
Bikram Choudhury began learning Hatha Yoga poses in his native India, at age three. He studied with Bishnu Ghosh and quickly became a yoga champion. At age 11, he was the youngest contestant ever to win the national India Yoga Competition. Swami Shjivananda declared him “Yogi Raj” (King of the Yogis). Later in life, a weightlifting accident crippled Bikram. With the guidance of his guru, Bikram created his 26 posture series, which restored his health. In a United Nations sponsored research project at Tokyo University, Bikram helped doctors prove that yoga regenerates tissues and cures chronic ailments. Combining Eastern discipline and Western medicine, Bikram perfected his comprehensive system, suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. Bikram came to the United States in 1973 and quickly became the foremost teacher in the West as celebrities, athletes, and others began flocking to him. Since that time he has been healing thousands of students at his school in Los Angeles and traveling the world extensively, bringing the benefits of Bikram yoga to millions of students worldwide.
