Find out what the buzz is all about.
The Bikram Yoga method is a standardized hatha yoga class comprising a series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises, performed in a room heated to approximately 40°C with approximately 40% humidity, for 90 minutes.
Instructors use specific standardized verbal cues to guide practitioners through the sequence. Verbal instruction, rather than hands-on adjustment, is part of the method. Verbal instruction supports practitioners to move actively rather than passively. Practicing actively, with conscious intentional effort, improves mental and physical awareness, and deepens self-realization over time.
Welcome, all beginners!
The class is accessible and safe for absolute beginners, with no yoga experience, without restriction on age, fitness, or ability. It is also suitable for all levels of practice. Simply put, the posture sequence is designed to move the body systematically through its full range of motion. Doing so therapeutically reveals dysfunction, addresses limitation, introduces challenge, develops self-awareness, and promotes overall conditioning. Class is as challenging as each practitioner makes it, at all levels. Everybody works together.
Try the right way, do your best, and take care of yourself.
The method emphasises approaching each posture with a conscious effort to do your best, step by step, the right way. Contrary to popular belief, doing “your best” doesn’t always mean working as hard as you can. For some, doing your best means trying harder, getting up and trying again, not giving up. For others, it means slowing down, relaxing, taking it easy, learning to breathe. Over time, practitioners come to understand class as a moving meditation, with breathing and concentration to support sustainable physical effort.
