Bikram yoga is a beginning yoga class, suitable for all age groups and ability levels yet challenging enough for the most practiced yogi and approachable enough for the pure novice. It is focused around 26 basic Hatha yoga postures, set up like a chain reaction so that each posture warms you up for the next until the end of class you have touched on each and every muscle, ligament, tendon, internal organ, and system in your body. During class, you will never find yourself going into a posture unprepared, under warmed up, or over-stretching.
Bikram yoga is practiced in a warm room which will allow you to heal faster, stretch deeper, and feel better without injuries. Yoga changes the construction of the body from the inside out, from bones to skin and from fingertips to toes. So before you change it, you have to heat it up to soften it because a warm body is a flexible body. Then you can reshape the body any way you want. Hatha yoga flushes away the waste products, the toxins of all the glands and organs of your body.
It provides a natural irrigation of the body through the circulatory system, with the help of the respiratory system. It brings nourishments to every cell of your body so that each one can perform its function and keep your body healthy. Bikram yoga also employs heat to further cleaning process. When you sweat, impurities are flushed out of the body through the skin. Practicing yoga not only increases your supplies of oxygen, but it also will teach you how to use that oxygen properly.
Included in this retreat are guided hikes through the green mountains.
This retreat will take place at the Killington Mountain Lodge in Vermont, New England, nestled into the heart of Vermont's Green Mountains.
