What is Bikram yoga? This is the original hot yoga method innovated by living yogi Bikram Choudhury. The Bikram method uses a set sequence of twenty six postures all of which are done twice. The class is held in a room heated to a toasty 40 degrees.
What are the benefits? "Expect a hot and strong class that takes no prisoners," says Sally. "Bikram yoga emphasises being strong and focused whilst in class and as a result the method has a big following of young professionals and 'type A' personalities. Having said that, Bikram himself believes that it is never too late to start his method of yoga and that anyone with the right commitment will benefit." Bikram yoga is said to detox the whole body as well as building strength and endurance.
