How did Bikram Yoga become to be "Bikram Yoga"? What is the difference between "Hot Yoga and Bikram Yoga"? We have a very strong lineage dating back to Babaji Mahasaya. Babaji had 2 disciples named Lahiri Mahasaya and Sri Yukteswar. Sri Yukteswar is the guru of Paramahansa Yogananda, and passed on teachings of Kriya Yoga to Yogananda. Bishnu Gosh is the brother of Paramahansa Yogananda and one of his first students at his Ranchi School. Bishnu Gosh went on to become many things, as well as a doctor. He prescribed postures to many sick people and had his disciple, Bikram Choudury, teach the postures to the people. Bikram Choudhury also studied at Ram Krishna Mission in Deoghar. Ram Krishna is the guru of Swami Vivekenanda. With his studies of Hatha Yoga, Bikram wanted to help many people at once, rather than the 15 one on one he would see in a day. This led him to develop our sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises we do today, known as Bikram Yoga. At first, Bishnu opposed the idea of group classes, however, he began to see the beneficial effects on all who came to Bikram's classes and gave him his blessing. In 1970, just before Bishnu Ghosh withdrew his spirit from his body, he asked Bikram to complete his job, and had him promise to bring yoga to the West and America.
Hot Yoga became popular after Bikram Yoga began. We have come to know Hot yoga as many things. Hot Yoga can be a variety of postures, levels, sequences done in a heated room. Sometimes heat can range from 95 - 110. Hot Yoga can be different each time. Bikram Yoga is always the same postures, done in a specific sequence in a heated room. Designed this way to warm up the body as you go along, and addressing each and every system, muscle, organ, tendon, and gland. Every class, every time. The repetition allows you to become more meditative and understand yourself with consistent practice. Bikram Yoga is what we have been passionate about for the past 20 years and it is what we continue to provide at our yoga space. We look forward to seeing you there!!!
