Here today we look at another type of yoga.
Hot yoga was pioneered by Bikram Choudhury, whose name became synonymous with yoga classes taught in a room heated to 95 to 100 degrees. The heat allows for the loosening of tight muscles and profuse sweating, which is thought to be cleansing. The Bikram method is a set series of 26 poses but not all hot classes make use of this series.
Hot yoga can refer to any yoga class done in a heated room. Though there are a few styles hot yoga classes, Bikram Yoga is the original hot yoga and among the best known. Even though some people may use “hot” and “Bikram” interchangeably, the truth is that all Bikram Yoga is hot, but not all hot yoga is Bikram.
Hot yoga often tends to be a flowing vinyasa style of practice in which the teacher instructs students in a series of linked poses.
During class, the room is usually maintained at a temperature of 95 to 105 F. As you can imagine, a vigorous yoga session at high temperatures makes the body very warm and induces profuse sweating. The intent is that the heat loosens your muscles and the sweat helps cleanse your body.
Bikram Yoga is just one style of hot yoga. Other popular hot yoga options include the Canadian import Moksha Yoga (known as Modo Yoga in the United States) and CorePower Yoga, a rapidly expanding chain. Many locally-owned and independent yoga studios offer their own style of heated classes as well.
Bikram Choudhury is a hot yoga innovator and founder of Bikram Yoga. His method is the original style to be set in a hot room. It is a set series of 26 postures, including two pranayama exercises, each of which is performed twice in a single 90-minute class.
Choudhury, who was born in Calcutta, India, in 1946, was a yoga champion in his youth, as was his wife Rajashree. In 1974, Choudhury founded the Yoga College of India in Beverly Hills, California, to teach his method. It soon became one of the most popular styles of yoga asana practiced in the West.
