If you like consistency, then Bikram is the yoga style for you. The practice of Bikram yoga was established in the 1960s and 70s by Bikram Choudbury. Of all the different types of yoga, Bikram is the most dependably regular. Bikram practices are done in rooms heated to 105 F (41 C) and place the yogi in 26 pre-established poses. Bikram style is also meant to be practiced in a carpeted room with mirrored walls. Unlike other styles, the instructor of a Bikram class does not adjust the yogis’ posture.
Practicing Bikram can improve your lower body strength, range of joint motion in both upper and lower body, and balance. As with hot yoga, the sweat induced in a Bikram class is also good for flushing out toxins.
