Bikram Yoga Requires Vigorous Postures And A Heated Room
By Eddie Smyths for exercise-and-health.com
Bikram yoga is a method of exercise created by a man named Bikram Choudhury, who states that his yoga method is the only true hatha yoga (yogic exercises (popular in the West) that combine difficult postures (which force the mind to withdraw from the outside world) with controlled breathing) that is currently practiced in the west. Yoga is a popular form of exercise that is often implemented into an individual’s lifetime fitness program and is effective in helping one to reach their target heart rate. Bikram’s yoga consists of a sequence of 26 asana yoga postures and 2 breathing exercises that are executed in a heated room.
The positions with this type of yoga are vigorous and call for much dedication from Bikram’s students. No exercise equipment is needed and the only requirement to complete the exercises is a heated room that is typically between 95-105 degrees. The heat makes muscles more flexible and promotes sweating that works as a purifier. Bikram’s yoga is suitable when implemented in both mens health and womens health exercise programs.
Different types of yogas are available for a variety of levels, ages, body types and every lifestyle. Bikram is offered in a ninety-minute session with the class simply following the teacher’s exercises as a guide.
While every body is at a different level of exercise and has a variety of needs, Bikram is suitable for everyone. You simply need to listen to your body to maintain a healthy exercise routine. With a healthy diet and regular exercise that can include yoga, the way a person can change and feel is indisputable.
