Take a beginner yoga class suitable for all age groups and ability levels, that’s challenging enough for the most practiced yogi and approachable enough for the pure novice. It is focused around 26 basic hatha yoga postures, set up like a chain reaction so that each posture warms you up for the next until the end of class you have touched on each and every muscle, ligament, tendon, internal organ and system in your body. YES you’ll feel fantastic – NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED! During class you will never find yourself going into a posture unprepared or under warmed up, never find yourself over-stretching but moving to your bodies maximum for whatever that may be for that class. We will focus on the breath, and doing your best; the yoga will do the rest!
Bikram yoga is practiced in a warm room which will allow you to heal faster, stretch deeper, feel better without injury. You will sweat! Why the heat you may ask? Yoga changes the construction of the body from the inside out, from bones to skin and from fingertips to toes. So before you change it, you have to heat it up to soften it, because a warm body is a flexible body. Then you can reshape the body any way you want. Hatha Yoga flushes away the waste products, the toxins of all the glands and organs of your body. It provides a natural irrigation of the body through the circulatory system, with the help of the respiratory system. It brings nourishments to every cell of your body so that each one can perform its function and keep your body healthy.
Bikram Yoga also employs heat to further that cleaning process. When you sweat, impurities are flushed out of the body through the skin. Practicing yoga not only increases our supplies of oxygen, but it also teaches us how to use that oxygen properly – we learn to control the breath through pranayama. We learn to breathe!
