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.

    Outstanding Insight

    I have been a practitioner of Bikram Yoga for a number of years and read both of the Bikram books by Bikram. Although they were informative this book by Marilyn Barnett book took the information to another level. In addition to clearly detailing the process of each pose I was taken with the spiritual essence of the book
