Bikram Yoga London

Updated on December 28, 2011

Bikram Yoga London

Synthesized from hatha yoga, Bikram yoga had gained a lot of followers from celebrities to fitness enthusiasts. Bikram yoga London becomes a follower of the Bikram regimen, and studios all around the UK are offering sessions of Bikram yoga. But what is Bikram yoga and where can we find studios that offer this exercise regimen?

Bikram Yoga 101

Bikram yoga is a yoga system derived from hatha yoga, the more traditional form of yoga. Classes in Bikram Yoga last exactly 90 minutes and it is composed of 2 breathing exercises and 26 postures. Ideally this is practiced in a heated room (40.6 degrees Celsius or 105 degrees Fahrenheit) and is the most popular form of hot yoga (yoga done under heated temperatures).

Improving circulation, increasing cardiovascular health, maximizing lung capacity and weight loss are some of the beneficial claims of Bikram yoga. The goal of the regimen is general health and prevention of injuries amidst the deep stretching and yoga poses. A factor that helps prevent injuries is the fact that the poses are done in a heated room. Bikram yoga is also said to restore health to the muscles and organs through increasing circulation to these areas, thereby preventing heart disease and organ failure. Bikram yoga is also said to improve a person’ lung capacity in order to take up more oxygen needed by the body. According to its founder Bikram Choudhury, people only use 50% of their total lung capacity, causing them to stretch the lungs further in order to take in oxygen. Since bikram yoga also incorporates breathing exercises, this increases a person’s lung capacity and his ability to take in more oxygen for the body.

Aside from promoting health and preventing diseases, one of the health benefits of Bikram Yoga is weight loss. An estimated 500 to 1250 calories are burned per session. The results are highly dependent on the intensity and other factors, results also vary individually. Because Bikram yoga can be beneficial as a weight loss regimen, celebrities alike also became practitioners. Lady Gaga, Jennifer Farley, Kobe Bryant, David Beckham and Ashton Kutcher are just some of the followers of Bikram yoga.
