Enter into a World of Bliss?
Imagine a room heated to over 105 degrees with humidity around 50%, stretching your body to its fullest capacity. These 26 powerful poses along with pranayama breathing – breathing techniques where your lungs are completely emptied before breathing resumes, which does more than calm your mind and balances your body – are done over the course of 90 minutes. This is Bikram yoga, not for the faint-hearted, created by the brilliance of Bikram Choudurry in the 1970’s.

This is what celebrities like Ashton Kutcher, Jim Carrey and Lady Gaga are raving about. In an interview with Men’s Health Magazine, Ashton Kutcher explained that he pretends he’s in the desert with no water while going through a Bikram Yoga session. Jim Carrey loves what it has done for himself and especially what it has done for his wife, Jenny McCarthy, who now has a nice booty due to this unique yoga.
Revel in the Hot Air
The heat accomplishes more than make anyone who enters the room sweat. The heat and humidity make it so that your lungs only work at 50%, pushing your lungs and heart to work harder, strengthening your organs. With this, the body uses the oxygen more efficiently and allows your internal organs to breath. It is claimed that the organs are in a sense, purified. Toxins are pushed out of your internal organs and through your sweat making your body healthier. The added sweat and heat makes your muscles more limber, allowing them to achieve deeper stretching and avoid injury.
Before embarking on the challenge of Bikram yoga, eat good nutrition on a daily basis but don’t eat for at least two hours before doing the yoga. Since it is extremely hot and the body will lose a lot of fluid due to sweat, the most important thing to remember is hydration. Drinking more than the recommended 8 glasses of water daily helps the body endure this intense workout.
