The key to relieving stress is to take a moment for yourself and breath. Bikram yoga is an activity that thousands have already found to help reduce stress. Your 90-minute session will give you the time in your day to calm down, and you will learn breathing techniques to help you through stressful moments.
You may have heard that Bikram yoga is one of the most challenging forms of yoga, but did you know it can also be one of the most healing and rewarding forms? If not, then take a look at the following ways in which Bikram yoga can help defuse your stress, empty toxins from your body, and relax your muscles.
Release Negative Energy
Bikram yoga is designed to make you sweat so you can release negative energy. As you sweat out harmful toxins, you’ll feel your body become lighter, the rate of blood flow increase, and tension diminish.
Reach a New Perspective
Bikram yoga has the power to make you reinterpret your everyday nuisances. As you reach deeper into each pose, stretch your arms out further and expand your chest wider; you’ll begin to notice a stronger, more durable self within you. As you come to know your physical strength, you’ll also realize your emotional strength, and suddenly, things that stressed you out before will no longer affect you the same way.
Optimize Your Breathing
While you practice Bikram yoga, your instructor will encourage you to take deliberate breaths that will revive your muscles and encourage the flow of oxygen-rich blood through your muscles. As the blood works its way into your muscles, knots will release, your heart rate will become steady, and your body will begin to feel relaxed.
