What is Yoga Bikram ?

Bikram’s beginning yoga class, the original “Hot Yoga”, is a demanding series of 26 postures (asanas) and two breathing exercises (pranayamas), which is suitable for all ages and levels of ability.

Each posture stretches and strengthens specific muscles, ligaments and joints needed for the next posture. The Bikram method also stimulates the organs, glands and nerves, moving fresh oxygenated blood to 100 percent of the body, restoring all systems to a healthy working order. Bikram scientifically designed this 90 minute program to deliver total health through the balancing and strengthening of every system in the body in order to prevent illness, injury and limit the effects of aging. In addition, the series of postures combine skills of concentration, patience, determination and self-control, which lead to increased mental clarity and reduced stress.

A regular practice of Bikram yoga also improves body posture and spine alignment. It relieves back pains and headaches; strengthens muscles; reduces symptoms of chronic diseases; gives better self confidence; improves body image; improves flexibility, balance and strength; gives a general feeling of wellness and peace.


Whether it’s to reduce stress, back pain, or simply to lose weight, Bikram yoga is ideal for those seeking a full-body workout allowing you to stay in shape, slim down, while letting go of the stresses of everyday life.

There are many advantages of practising in a hot room; the heat combined with the yoga allows you stretch more deeply and safely to access all of the benefits each of the 26 poses has to offer.

Stress Management

Thanks to the heat muscles loosen up more easily and tension melts away. Improved breath awareness and thus oxygenation of the body help you to eliminate any causes of stress and feel immediately more relaxed; all this by the time you finish the first pose! The benefits are felt well after the class is over.

Weight loss

Regular physical activity can help you slim down. In addition to burning calories, Bikram yoga can help you improve your figure and strengthen your muscles. An ideal way to (re)discover and (re)connect to your body!

Improved strength and flexibility

The heat in a Bikram yoga class allows the body to stretch as you are able to go more deeply into the poses; muscles relax more quickly and with less effort. This yoga improves your posture while you strengthen muscles, most notably those of the back and the core. It’s a great remedy against back pain as you realign and strengthen the spinal column.


While you sweat during class the body is deeply purified. Your energy levels increase greatly and your sleep quality improves. The practice of hot yoga can even be beneficial for those suffering from chronic fatigue.

Great for athletes

Many athletes practise Bikram yoga. Your ligaments, tendons, and joints are strengthened, all of which may help prevent injury. The heat also improves stamina, endurance and flexibility. Bikram yoga can even help “repair” bodies neglected from years of wear and tear in high-level sports
