How it works

26 Postures That Work

115_sbow.jpg

Bikram Yoga is great for beginners and advanced students alike. It is a scientifically designed system for achieving and maintaining health and balance in your body, mind, and spirit. It is a series of twenty-six postures that work the entire body from the inside out.

Working each system in the body through contraction and extension, the postures address every bodily system including: digestive, respiratory, circulatory, immune, endocrine, lymphatic, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. It stretches and strengthens every single muscle, ligament and joint in the body down to cell membrane stretching. It is challenging, exciting, vigorous and profound. It is an excellent compliment to all other forms of exercise and sport and can help keep you competitive and active throughout your entire life. Bikram Yoga has proven itself effective in the United States and abroad for nearly forty years.

  • Stretching the muscles works the body at the cellular level.  Deep cell stretching helps to facilitate dissemination of nutrients and biochemicals, and the removal of waste products.
  • In the warmth, calories and fatty acids become more accessible and are more easily burned, helping the body operate at optimal fitness.
  • Cholesterol in the blood gets "blasted out" of the arteries and veins; in turn it regulates blood pressure.
  • Oxygen and nutrients are supplied to parts of the body that have been in "cold storage", without maximal circulation for extended periods of stress and illness.
  • Toxins are eliminated and the central nervous system is both energized and soothed.
  • The lymphatic system is flushed and the immune system strengthened.
  • Sexual vitality and fertility are improved.
  • The internal organs and endocrine systems are massaged and balanced, returning circulation and bringing them back to peak efficiency.
  • Lung capacity is expanded, leading to greater vitality.
  • Bones are strengthened through torsion.  Studies show Bikram yogis have bone density one standard deviation above the norm.
  • The joints are opened and lubricated with synovial fluid.
  • Muscles are strengthened, toned and flexibility is increased.
