Bikram YogaBikram Yoga was developed by Bikram Choudhury, who claims that his method is the only true hatha yoga practiced in the West. Bikram has designed a sequence of 26 traditional hatha yoga postures that is performed in a heated room. The postures are vigorous and demand a lot from the students. The heated room makes muscles more pliant and encourages sweating which acts as a purifier.
People of all levels, ages and body types practice together with a teacher acting as a guide, taking the class through the ninety-minute series.
Bikram teaches at the Yoga College of India in Mumbai and other locations around the world, including Tokyo and San Francisco.
