Overview


Yoga is many centuries old, but hot yoga, developed only in the 1960s, has already proven a beneficial and popular variation on the ancient art. Hot yoga-also known as Bikram, after its originator, Bikram Choudhury-is a method for working out in rooms heated up to 100 degrees, thus enhancing muscle suppleness and aiding body detoxifica-tion. This heavily illustrated book describes each of the 26 progressively more challeng-ing hot yoga postures. Aided by color photos, the author gives detailed instruction on all hot yoga poses, which she claims unite mind, body, and spirit when performed in rigor-ous but enjoyable workouts. Each pose is preceded by information on its specific bene-fits. Practitioners are advised to end each session with cool-down techniques that relax both mind and body. The book concludes with recommendations for hot yoga as treat-ment for complaints such as back pain, sports injuries, and stress. Hot yoga helps its practitioners explore their limits and enhance their physical and mental well-being. Ap-proximately 50 color photos and more than 100 line drawings.
