Is your exercise regimen just getting dull? Why not shake things up with a Bikram Yoga, or Hot Yoga class? Bikram yoga is performed in a room heated to nearly 105 degree F, with a humidity of 40 percent. A vigorous yoga, Bikram is typically a ninety minute program consisting of twenty-six postures. All postures used require total engagement of all major muscle groups. The demanding nature of all of the Bikram poses combined with the heat, are designed to raise your heart rate and tire your muscles. Bikram yoga takes the saying “Burning Calories” to an extreme that has not been felt before. And maybe it can be that next step up in your workout to help you past that stubborn plateau.
Please understand the Bikram yoga is not for every person due to the intensity and potential to cause heat related illness. Like with every other exercise regimen talk to your Doctor before considering a Bikram yoga class, and be sure that you have their okay. Those with no health concerns, must be sure to stay hydrated at all times during the class, and if at any time you feel dizzy, lightheaded or sick at all, STOP and take a break, or call it quits for the day.
