 What is happening when you practice Bikram Yoga

Bikram 1

During a Bikram Yoga session, muscles are contracted and stretched at a cellular, biochemical level. Lipids and proteins reorganize optimally allowing for better circulation. Joint mobility and range of motion is increased, and strength is built by the use of gravity. Muscles and joints are improved. Blood and calcium are brought to the bones. Working against gravity strengthens the bones. The organs of the immune system within the bones (red marrow) are boosted. The lymph nodes are massaged, lymph is pumped throughout the body, and white blood cells are distributed throughout the body as the lymphatic system works more efficiently. There is compression and extension to the thymus, spleen, appendix and intestines; lungs are stretched and flushed out by increased blood circulation. The endocrine glands are encouraged to secrete appropriate hormones, and the communication between hormones and various glands and systems of the body is perfected. Toxins and waste are eliminated through the organs of elimination. The nerves are stimulated by compression and extension, improving communication within the systems of the body and supplying fresh blood, oxygen and nutrients throughout. The brain is stimulated by improved circulation and by varying blood pressure.

    What are your hours I’ve done hot yoga… I’m bringing a friend no mat and he has never done it before do you provide mats/ blocks. During class are the lights dimmed for a more zen feeling.

      Hi Debra! I’m glad you reached out to us!
      We offer 26 classes a week, check out our schedule here: https://www.bikramhotyogavabeach.com/rates/classes-rates-schedules/
      We don’t provide mats or blocks, you won’t need them in class, that’s where you’ll see the heat is your friend. And with Bikram yoga we do not dim the lights-for a few reasons. Mainly because we give a lot of instruction and want you to be able to see yourself and understand what we are talking about!
      Give us a call or send us a message through our website if you have any more questions!

      See you soon 🙂
