Question: What is Bikram Yoga?
Answer: Bikram Yoga is a yoga method that uses a mixture of heat, stretching, balancing, and pressure to release toxins and flush the blood supply. Typical studios are kept at around 105 degrees Fahrenheit.

Q: Should I feel dizzy, nauseous, or tired after the first class?
A: It is normal to feel any one or a mixture of these things before your body is used to this new type of exercise. On class day, consider drinking extra water (up to double your normal intake) to help your body tolerate the heat.

Q: What do I need for Bikram Yoga?
A: Aside from an instructor and a properly heated studio, you will need a yoga mat, a bottle of water to stay hydrated, and a large towel. Also consider packing a washcloth or two to wipe away sweat.
