90-MINUTE BIKRAM METHOD YOGA
The Bikram Method yoga is a 90 minute eye open meditation. The dialog and the teacher guide you through 26 postures and 2 deep breath exercises. The room is heated. We start class with a standing deep breathing exercise that is good for your lung and respiratory system. It also increases the oxygen in your body and warms you up from the inside out. We continue class with 26 postures. We end class with a breathing exercise that cools your body from the inside out and detoxifies the body and strengthens your abdominal muscles.
Class requires a mat, a towel to cover your mat, and water. Since the room is heated, it's best to wear clothes that you are comfortable in and that you can move around in, but also clothes that are lightweight and cooling. Men must wear at least two layers of bottoms.
Seven reasons for the heated room
1. It helps deliver more blood to the muscles
2. It helps with concentration
3. It aids in detoxification
4. Makes muscles more elastic, less susceptible to injury
5. Improves coordination
6. Reduces heart irregularities associated
with sudden exercise
7. Burns fats more easily
