what is bikram yoga
”My yoga class is that sweltering day. It’s one long, hot meditation. We put incredible pressure on you to teach you to break your attachment to external things and go within. Instead of blaming others for your own weakness, fear and depression, you will learn to take responsibility for your own life. You’ve got to face yourself in the mirror, every part you don’t like, every mistake you make, every excuse your mind creates to limit your potential liberation–there’s nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. No escape from reality. With these kinds of demands on your abilities and attention, you will soon forget that there is anyone on the next mat in the classroom, much less notice what they are wearing. After you learn to discipline your body and mind under these conditions, you will truly be able to concentrate; no external will be able to break your powerful focus. That’s why I say the the darkest place in the world is under the brightest lamp. In the Torture Chamber of my class, you will find a beautiful light, and the source of that light is within you.”
who is bikram ?
Bikram Yoga was founded by Bikram Choudhury, who at the age of 12 was India’s youngest ever national Yoga champion. At 17, Bikram was severely injured in a weight-lifting accident that crushed his knee and was told by doctors he would never walk again. With the help of his guru, Bishnu Ghosh, Bikram restored his health practicing yoga. He created the series of asanas which are now taught at all Bikram Yoga Studios today. With medical experts at Tokyo university, Bikram conducted a three-year research project that provided scientific evidence that Hatha yoga asanas are an aid in preventing degenerative diseases, regenerating tissue and healing chronic ailments. He moved to the United States in 1973, after having been invited by President Richard Nixon. In 1974, Bikram founded the Yoga College of India in the United States. Today there are thousands of studios in the world and millions of people practice Bikram Yoga.
