About Bikram Yoga

The original hot yoga, 90 minutes, 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises, in a room heated to 40ºC.

Bikram Yoga is the original hot yoga, with origins going back nearly 50 years. The current “hot yoga” phenomenon is an offshoot of the huge popularity of Bikram Yoga and has created some confusion about the difference between an authentic 90-minute Bikram yoga class and other styles of hot yoga.

The official Bikram teacher training program began several decades ago and helps to ensure a consistent level of teaching is offered to Bikram Yoga students when practicing in a genuine Bikram Yoga studio.

Unlike a flowing style hot yoga class, the Bikram practice follows a principal of holding the body in stillness, in a particular position, with optimal alignment, using focus and breath to then create physical, mental and emotional change.

These moments of stillness, within and between each posture are important to give the body time to recover, re-oxygenate and prepare for the next posture.

As a genuine Bikram Yoga studio, our instructors teach only the original 90 minute sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises, daily, in a room heated to 40C, with 40% humidity, on a floor surface that reduces the risk of injury through slipping. Other hot yoga classes tend to be cooler, shorter and most often a flowing style.
