Bikram Yoga is done in a HOT room to increase circulation and warm your muscles. The heat allows for a deeper workout, creates a cardiovascular benefit and prevents injury. The postures also stimulate the organs, glands and nerves to a state of self-regeneration by moving fresh oxygenated blood to 100% of the body, restoring all systems to healthy working order.
The heat also flushes toxins out of the body facilitating calorie burning (up to 1000 calories in one single session). It is common to lose centimetres of shape in a very short period of time!
