Bikram Yoga - with Bikram Choudhury

Please don't try this at home.

Janushirasana with Paschimottanasana and a little help from Bikram himself pretending to be Jesus Christ on the cross.

    Jesus!!! I dont know if he is trying to keep his balance or hes dancing on the ladys back. What kind of yoga is this? And by the way, for all i know you are not allowed to drink water during practice. Why does everybody have a bottle?

    From what I've read, Bikram doesn't follow the usual rules of yoga. I'll bet the water is because he is fond of cranking the heat up to the fullest when teaching "Hot" yoga.

    Yes, the bikram yoga room temp starts at about F 105 and goes depending on how crowded the room is (more crowded, higher humidity, more difficult). I'm told the room temp in Japan is much higher... Hence, water is essential.

    Greetings from Rishikesh
    Rishikesh is one the holy cities of India, the Hatha Yoga Capital of the world, and a totally vegetarian town. It's about a 6 hours ride from Delhi, and is also a major gateway to the Himalayas. About 26 Kms from Haridwar. Located in the laps of lower Himalayas, and is surrounded by scenic beauty of the hills on three sides with Holy Ganga flowing through it.The pace in Rishikesh is much more melllow than Delhi, and you will enjoy walking about town undisturbed by touts and hawkers The whole place is considered to be sacred as it is believed that meditation at this place leads to attainment of salvation. There are many temples-some ancient, some new along the river Ganges. Rishikesh is important not only as pilgrimage centre closely associated with the Ramayana, but also as home for many important centres of Hindu religious thought and spirituality, and Great Yoga Centres. There are a great many ashrams and Yoga institutes here. Rishikesh is also the gateway and the start-off point for journeys to important religious places like Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri. Rishikesh is also acquiring greater significance as a centre for white water rafting, other riverine sports, a base for treks and hikes in the beautiful Garhwal Himalayas.

    Why is he standing on your back if I may ask?

    I would never practice yoga under someone who tried to patent their series of postures, or who drives a rolls royce.

    Yeah... I've even heard Bikram Yoga teachers say this man's a bit of a contradiction. (re the Rolls Royce comment)

    スウェーデンのガイ It's Bikram yoga aka hot yoga (it's done in a heated room) that's why people have water bottles because it's important to hydrate since you're sweating profusely throughout the session.

    What a Charlatan!

    Don't knock it till you try it. Been doing yoga for many years plus many other routines, this is the only one that leaves me without injury and with the body mind connection that had been search for. Yup, water is essential, better to load up before hand though.

    Might cause her to have disc herniation as well as overstretched ligaments of the spine. This kind of adjustment should be outlawed in a yoga class.
