Bikram yoga is not for everyone. It is hot, challenging, and dehydrating, but that’s exactly the point of it. It’s meant to detox your body and extract toxins from the mind, body, and soul. Founded by yogi, Bikram Choudhury, it has been practiced since the early 1970’s, and is intentionally uncomfortable. There is nothing about it that is meant to keep you in your “comfort zone.” Bikram is all about cleansing, and as we all know, taking our mind and body to new levels often involves challenging ourselves. Few worthwhile things in life come easy, and Bikram yoga is one of them.
If you’re up for taking your yoga practice to the next level, Bikram may be exactly what you need. Below you’ll find the essential guide to Bikram. It provides everything you need to know to get started including preparation and poses. Enjoy!
