Bikram Yoga is a therapeutic system of healing based on stretching in a heated room.
Bikram Yoga classes are accessible to everybody regardless of experience level, age, shape, size or physical or mental limitation. It is available to everybody - first timers, beginners, people with limited mobility or chronic illness and experienced practitioners alike.
As a first timer, it can take a few classes to get used to the sequence and we recommend taking as many classes as possible when you first begin your practise to see best results. Your first class is your first step in taking responsibility for your own healing process.
Taking responsibilty for your own health is empowering.
Bikram Yoga beginners classes are taught using a specific method. Listen very closely to your teacher and they will teach you how to do each posture in detail, correctly. It is not important that you do or can't do a posture. It is important that you TRY. Just by trying the posture the best you can - you will receive all the benefits you need.
Each class is 90 minutes in duration and is practised in a heated room.
There are several benefits to stretching in the heat:
- you can stretch your muscles more safely;
- your body cleans itself through the sweating process; and
- your blood thins allowing for an efficient flush of your circulatory system cleaning the veins, arteries and vital organs.
A consistent Bikram Yoga practise provides for increased strength, flexibility and balance. It also provides the opportunity to strengthen your mental attributes of faith, self control, determination, concentration and patience. It improves your mind-body connection providing greater physical wellbeing, mental clarity and emotional balance.
