Bikram’s next claims are some of my all time favorites… And if theses claims were true EVERYBODY would be doing it! Bikram states that his style of yoga “reorganize the lipids (fatty acids) in the muscular structure, warm muscles burn fat more effectively” and “when we stretch, the fat has no room to sit so it redistributes to the bloodstream which we then use as energy.”
Since when do we do yoga for a cardiovascular work-out? Aren’t we going into the yoga room to become enlightened, to de-stress, to breathe? Isn’t the physical practice of yoga a moving meditation? Don’t misunderstand me here, I walked into the yoga room because something inside me knew I was not emotionally or spiritually okay. When I first started practicing yoga (Ashtanga) I finally started breathing. The TRUTH, my motivation was fueled to practice yoga because it was a great workout, I was hypermobile and my ego was feed being able to practice all the “advanced” postures like scorpion. Ashtanga and vinyasa flow allowed me to meditate, exercise and breathe all in 1.5 hours. During this time in my life there were not enough hours in my day to exercise and meditate, nor was my mind even capable of sitting quietly.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), stress is the “health epidemic of the 21st century.” Stress kills 7 people every 2 seconds, that is 110 million people every year. The Center for Disease Control and the National Institute on Occupational Safety & Health declares the workplace our #1 life stressor.
