Benefits of Bikram Yoga
Bikram Yoga improves the quality of your life
Bikram Yoga comprises 26 postures found in traditional Hatha yoga. These are practised in a heated room.
There is substantial evidence to support the benefits that Bikram yoga has both as therapeutic and preventative forms of medicine.
Yoga is an ancient science that has been around for thousands of years, and will continue to grow because of its phenomenal effects on the quality of life.
