Bikram yoga, also known as hot yoga, began to grow in popularity during the 1970s. Hot yoga uses a set of 26 poses and 2 breathing exercises in each session. This style of yoga is carried out in a heated room which encourages sweating and the burning of fat through a stimulated metabolism. It can take 90 minutes to complete a Bikram hot yoga sequence. Because there are set poses and breathing exercises, this style of yoga is easier to learn.
Both men and women can benefit from hot yoga. Benefits seen from practising hot yoga include things like improved muscle tone and strength, weight loss, better metabolism, and a healthier response to stress. Above anything else, Bikram hot yoga is a great way to improve your fitness and get in shape. Drinking water before and after hot yoga is advised to avoid dehydration and not wearing too many layers of clothing is also recommended so you don't overheat. Divine Goddess has a range of hot yoga pants that are perfect for practising hot yoga.
