Bikram Yoga was designed for people with injuries and chronic conditions. Knee pain, back pain, shoulder pain, poor circulation, blood sugar issues, inflexibility – all can be improved by starting Bikram Yoga. No experience or flexibility required.
The beautiful thing about Bikram Yoga is that you don’t have to be good at it to benefit from it. We all get the benefits every class just by trying to do the poses. The therapeutic benefits don’t wait to happen until we are deep into some pretzel shape – the therapy happens as soon as we go through our natural range of motion – whatever that may be that day – in the hot room. Our bodies start to open up and our systems start to work better as a result. Then our minds benefit, too.
