The special feature of Bikram Yoga is the heated room. The warmth aids in warming your muscles, something well-known in every type of sport. At the same time your metabolism is stimulated and the warmth makes it easier to stretch into the postures. Your circulation is activated and oxidative stress is reduced. Many people say: "It's like a cleansing of the body." Active fat burning and muscular transformation occur through regular training, which strengthens your musculoskeletal system.
Each form of yoga has different effects. What they all have in common is that yoga improves your physical well-being and stabilizes your immune system. Further benefits include an increase in your powers of concentration, the ability to "turn off" and relax, a new sense of body awareness, perception, understanding and tranquility for the important things in life. You reach serenity, joy and balance.
Find balance with yourself and your surroundings. TRY IT - ANYONE CAN DO IT!
Generally, Hatha Yoga accentuates the positive effects of physical movement and conscious relaxation. Furthermore, we want to be in the here and now in order to be able to concentrate and focus on what we are now doing - to practice yoga. With regular practice one experiences a stabilization of the posture as well as an improvement in terms of the flexibility of the spinal column.
Yoga reduces stress and has a positive effect on the autonomic nervous system. In addition, yoga reduces insomnia, improves our acuteness of thought and strengthens our hormonal system, digestive system, immune system and circulatory system. It also builds strong muscles, fibers and ligaments and alleviates backache and malpositions of the spine. Through yoga we experience more calmness, tolerance and altruism.
