THE GROUNDBREAKING 90 MINUTE SERIES THAT REVOLUTIONISED YOGA
BYL is widely regarded as London’s leading hot yoga specialist, pioneering at the forefront of the hot yoga revolution. All the forms we offer are carefully selected to serve as the spokes on a wheel synergistic with the center, the one that started it all – the Bikram Yoga 90 minute series.
The class is designed for ALL levels, Beginners to Advanced. During the 90-minute session work out every muscle, tendon, joint, ligament, organ and gland while systematically moving oxygenated blood to every cell of the body.
A single session of Bikram Yoga works every joint, muscle, tendon, ligament and gland in the human body.
The postures are practiced in the safe environment of a heated room, increasing muscle relaxation and blood circulation and minimizing risk of injury. Strengthen your cardiovascular system and flush toxins from the body.The type and sequence of the stretching and compression postures ensure that the health effects are optimised, massaging all internal organs, flushing out the cardiovascular system, and stimulating the endocrine and nervous systems, thereby releasing any deficient hormones and enzymes.
The result is improvement of health to all systems, reduction of stress, strengthening of the immune system and healing of injuries. Regularly practising Bikram Yoga can reduce many symptoms of chronic ailments and diseases, including back and joint problems, diabetes, asthma, arthritis, sleep disorders, digestive problems, tendonitis, skin conditions, and others.
Leave each class feeling rejuvenated and energised. Bikram Yoga builds strength, flexibility, grace, balance, and endurance, ultimately promoting the creation of a lean and healthy body inside out. At the same time, it has positive effects on mental well-being, making you more productive, focused and balanced, resulting in an eventual union of the body, mind and spirit.
Is this class suitable for beginners?
What do I need to bring?
What is the temperature? Will it be manageable for me?
As with any activity, for most people the first class can be challenging (typically due to the heat). It typically gets easier quickly from there and very likely you’ll soon be craving the heat, particularly as your body starts to change.
We have students ranging in age from 17 to 80, so no matter what your age or level of fitness, Bikram yoga is a great way to begin. We encourage you to 'listen' to your body at all times in the yoga room, initially taking small steps as your body gradually begins to open up.
What's the calorie burn? Will I lose weight?
People often report seeing changes in their bodies after the first few classes. Clothing feels looser, and the body starts to reshape itself as it becomes stronger and leaner.
