The Hot Plus class Tuesdays at 9am includes the 26 postures that you know and love from Bikram Yoga classes, but you will also learn variations and new postures that you can try during the 2nd sets if you like and some vinyasa. Give it a shot! It’s good to move and challenge your body in different ways.
The 60 minute Hot Express class Thursdays at 9am was derived from and inspired by the Bikram Yoga sequence. It includes all of the same postures and breathing exercises but it moves faster and incorporates a “yoga flow” technique for some of the postures. It is suitable for all levels.
Welcome to Bikram Yoga Santa Clarita in Old Town Newhall! Our entrance and parking lot are in the rear of the building, through the alley way between Main & Walnut streets and 8th & 9th streets. We offer the traditional 90-minute hot yoga classes. Each class is a rigorous series of 26 postures and two breathing exercises, suitable for all ages and levels of ability. Each posture stretches, strengthens and prepares specific muscles, ligaments and joints for the next posture. The Bikram method also stimulates the organs, glands and nerves, moving fresh oxygenated blood to 100% of the body, restoring all systems to a healthy working order. Bikram Choudhury scientifically designed this series to deliver total health through the balancing and strengthening of every system in the body in order to prevent illness, injury, promote weight loss and limit the effects of aging. The series of postures combine skills of concentration, patience, determination and self-control, which increase mental clarity and reduce stress. Bikram Yoga is practiced in a heated room to warm your muscles, allow a deeper workout and cleanse the body by flushing toxins.
Bikram Choudhury began learning Hatha Yoga in his native India at the age of three. He began studying with Bishnu Ghosh (Paramahansa Yogananda’s brother) and quickly became a yoga champion. At 11, he was the youngest contestant ever to win the National India Yoga Competition. Swami Shivananda declared him “Yogi Raj,” King of the Yogis. A weightlifting accident crippled Bikram. But with the guidance of his guru, Bikram created his 26 posture series which restored his health. In a United Nations-sponsored research project at Tokyo University, Bikram helped doctors prove that yoga regenerates tissues and cures chronic ailments. Combining Eastern discipline and Western medicine, Bikram perfected his comprehensive system, suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. Bikram came to the U.S. in 1973 at the invitation of President Nixon and the urging of Shirley MacLaine. Since then, he has healed thousands of students and touched millions worldwide.
