Scientific Research: How Yoga Works

Posted on: October 16, 2014
We all know that yoga does a body (and a mind) good. But up until recently, no one could really say with any degree of certainty why—or even how—it improves conditions as

I live near by the studio and was always driving by, so one day I decided to check it out.  Originally weight loss had attracted me to the series but now a lot of it has to do with stress relief.


Before Bikram I felt really sluggish in a lot of ways: my weight, my attitude and my mind.  Since I completed the 30 day challenge, I've felt amazing in every way.  My body has toned up, I'm happier and stress free in my everyday life.  I feel like I could accomplish anything now.


My first class was a struggle to say the least.  I felt a lot of things but mostly dizzy and overwhelmed.  I thought class was never going to end.  It felt like there was a lot of challenges but the biggest high was completing the entire class!  And what made me come back was how I felt after class and my self-determination.


Now my favourite part about class is when I am able to stretch further in a posture then the class before.

If I could give a new student advice, I would tell them to stick with it and give it your all.  Don't judge your performance on your first few classes.  Everything takes practice.  Also, keep an open mind.  Eventually you'll get used to the heat.
