Understanding Hot Yoga

A bit of History

 Bishnu Ghosh (1903-1970) was the younger brother and disciple of the world-renowned Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952; founder of the worldwide Self-Realization Fellowship and author of Autobiography of a Yogi). Ghosh Yoga has a fascinating history of meditation, breathing techniques, showmanship, physical culture, asana, bodybuilding, therapeutic exercises, medical research, and individual prescription of exercises and asana. The Ghosh lineage has been transmitted worldwide primarily as Bikram Yoga, via Bikram and Rajashree Choudhury, and their trained teachers.


What makes it Special?

A heated environment at 40°C and 40% humidity during 90 minutes can make the practice of yoga more challenging, but some of the benefits are worth it, especially if you’re looking to make big progress. If done correctly and safely, hot yoga can provide the following benefits:


You need a way to shift your emotional constraints into a more flowing and accessible form.

Inner Peace

You want the inner peace that comes from knowing that your life is not out of your control.

Inner Self

You want a practice that brings you into a high awareness of your inner self.
