We offer 26 & 2 Hot Yoga, the original Bikram Yoga Beginning Series classes. The 90-minute classes are suited for students of all ages and levels of ability- beginners and more experienced students alike!
The series of twenty-six Hatha Yoga postures and two breathing exercises was strategically developed by Physical Culturist Bishnu Charan Ghosh, one of the greatest and most influential yoga masters of the past century, mentor to Bikram Choudhury and brother of the great spiritual leader Paramahasana Yogananda. Ghosh was a celebrated physical culturist and the first to scientifically document yoga’s ability to cure not only common ailments but chronic physical ailments and heal the body.
Hot Yoga postures are practiced in a heated room and are designed to work every part of your body systematically, to engage all the internal organs, veins, ligaments, and all the muscles and joints. Everything that is needed to maintain optimum health and maximum function. The room is heated because a warm body is a flexible body. Hatha Yoga flushes out the toxins from the glands and organs of your body. It provides natural irrigation through the circulatory system with the help of the respiratory system. It brings nourishment to every cell of your body so that each one can perform its function and keeps your body healthy. Humidity is added to further that cleaning process. When you sweat, impurities are flushed out of your body through your skin. You will notice your regular yoga practice will increase the supply of oxygen.
