Who is Bikram?
Bikram Choudhury was born in Calcutta, India in 1946. He began learning and studying hatha yoga postures at the age of 3. At age 20, a weightlifting accident crippled Bikram. Although doctors said he would never walk again, with the help of his guru, Bishnu Ghosh (who comes from Paramahansa Yogananda’s lineage), Bikram created his 26 posture series, which he claims, restored his health.
In a United Nations sponsored research project at Tokyo University, Bikram helped doctors prove that yoga regenerates tissues and cures chronic ailments. Combining Eastern discipline and Western medicine, Bikram perfected his comprehensive system suitable for all ages and levels of fitness.
Bikram arrived in the United States in 1973 at the invitation of President Nixon and the urging of Shirley Maclaine. He quickly became the foremost yoga teacher in the west as celebrities, athletes, and others began to flock to him. Since that time, Bikram’s Yoga College of India has expanded to hundreds of schools and millions of students worldwide.
What is Bikram Yoga?
Bikram Yoga is a demanding series of 26 postures and two breathing exercises, performed in a room heated to 105*F and maintained at 40% humidity, 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 and injury and limit the side effects of aging. In addition, the series of postures combine skills of concentration, patience, determination, and self-control, which increase mental clarity and reduce stress. Bikram Yoga is done in a heated room to warm your muscles, prevent injury, allow a deeper workout, and cleanse the body by flushing toxins.
