Bikram Yoga - Hot Yoga For Weight Loss
by Chris Ramos
40% humidity-for 90 minutes. It will make you sweat buckets.

It's All about Sweating?

Now there's a little confusion surrounding the sweating part. Some say sweating
alone does not make you lose weight. Or it does but only temporarily. Once you
drink fluids to rehydrate then you regain all the weight you just lost.

Well, yes and no. Yes, excess weight is not something you can simply sweat off
without proper physical exertion. No, sweating is not the sole reason for weight loss
when you do Bikram yoga. It is only part of the reason.

The Bikram "Glow"

Bikram involves 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises, which as you carry out inside
the heated room give you a total body workout. Your heart rate increases. Your
muscles, warmed and flexed, get stronger with regular practice and eventually burn
more fat easily.

Bikram yoga practitioners have lean, toned bodies yet they don't look old. They don't
lose the glow in their skin, which is what typically happens when you lose weight, and
actually look younger than before they took up Bikram.

The Bikram "glow" is physiological in nature. The heavy sweating involved in the
sessions detoxifies your body of harmful toxins and improves your blood circulation,
both of which in turn increase your metabolism. Your immune system is fortified
because the output of the cells whose job is to fight infections is increased.

Attuned Bodies and Minds

As an end result, your bodily systems will work in better harmony. It is not unusual
that people who do Bikram yoga do not suffer from constipation anymore. They
sleep better. Their appetites are normalized, all those cravings for unhealthy food
vanished. They genuinely feel better.

True, Bikram yoga can be challenging because you have to be able to stand the heat.
But you also have to realize that those who do must have developed great
endurance and will power. Though at some point, when they were just starting out,
they were all novices just like you now.

So you see, people who steadily lose weight through Bikram yoga do so because
their bodies and minds are attuned to losing weight.

You have probably heard people
talking about it in your workplace, in
the subway, in the coffee shop. That
it really works. That it made them
lose weight. Yes, Bikram yoga is hot.
It may seem everybody else has tried
it but you.

But before you dive in, it is important
to be more informed. Because when
people say Bikram is a hot yoga, they
do not only mean it's well-liked and in
style. They also mean it literally. A
session in Bikram yoga means
exposure to elevated
temperatures-105 degrees and about
