Please consult your doctor if you have any doubts about practising, you may also talk with your certified teacher before the session. Bikram yoga should be challenging to all yogis but don't take any risks where your health is concerned, always consult a doctor.
Bikram yoga is a powerful cardiovascular workout. The combination of 40deg heat, 40% humidity and the 26 postures raise the heart rate. It is very challenging and with regular participation will help build up muscle tone, stamina, strength and aid in weight loss and increase your 'core' strength.
