The benefits of Bikram Yoga can be seen in the number of students lining up for his classes. The philosophy behind the success of the institution called Bikram Yoga or Hot yoga is very simple – deliver results. And the results are ample. Students leave the classes feeling rejuvenated and relaxed.

Bikram Yoga also has a therapeutic and cosmetic effect on its practitioners. The main reason for this is the perspiration – SWEATING! This, automatically, flushes out all toxins from the body leading to detoxification. Tell me, how many people, in this day and age, actually pay attention to this?

Besides, the 26 poses are carefully selected to tone up, stretch, compress and limber up all the muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints and organs of the body.

The internal toning up of these parts of the body automatically enhances fitness levels.

Beauty, they say, is skin deep. So what better way to enhance beauty, than working on the skin – the largest organ of the body! This Bikram does, efficiently and successfully, through profuse perspiration. The toxins eliminated in the process, serve to give your skin the kind of glow no external wash could. Besides, all this exercising of all these parts of the body also tones up the glands, the endocrine or hormonal system of the body.

This is largely responsible for the way we look, through hormonal secretion. By exercising all the body parts enumerated above, the endocrine glands, the sweat glands and directly the skin – twisting, turning, contracting, and stretching – both fitness and beauty are natural by products.
