Dr. Rose Kenny has been practicing Bikram yoga for several years in Redmond, Oregon. She is a physician at Family Care Center there and knows the benefits of regular stretching and exercise that Bikram yoga has for everyone. She recommends the practice to many of her patients, especially those who badly need to improve their circulation and muscle strength naturally. Here are three tips to get the most out of your next Bikram yoga session:
- Drink water. Bikram yoga differs from hot yoga only in the poses you typically do in the hot room. In a room over 100 degrees Fahrenheit and forty percent humidity, you’ll be sweating for the duration of the session. While sweating and stretching like this will do wonders for releasing endorphins and improving your circulation, it’s important to stay hydrated so that you don’t lose too many fluids.
- Don’t eat too much or too little before your session. You don’t want to be too full to constrict your movement, but you also don’t want to pass out in the middle of the session, either.
- Don’t overexert. Listen to your body during your session. You can cause yourself too much stress and pain if you overexert yourself in the hot room while doing all of the many poses in Bikram yoga.
Dr. Rose Kenny constantly preaches the benefits of hot yoga and Bikram yoga as a great way to release tension and toxins from your body. She looks forward to her next hot session.
