Certifications / Qualifications
Pure Bikram Yoga College of India Southern Indiana is a qualified affiliate of BIKRAM INC.
This means we do it the right way: the only classes we offer are Bikram’s authentic Hatha Yoga – 26 postures done twice in a specific order with 2 breathing exercises. This requires 90 minutes to complete the class safely. All classes are always taught by a prequalified certified Bikram instructor (class is never led without instruction). Instructions are spoken guiding you through word by word. The practice room is heated to 105 degrees and we maintain 30-40% humidity.
The only teachers we employ must have and maintain the most current certifications directly from Bikram Inc. A major part of teaching this yoga program is frequently being face to face with the Guru himself, Bikram Choudury. There is no substitute for learning directly from the source. It requires many years of this concentrated focus to unearth pure hatha yoga’s true depth of benefits potential. In life, regardless of your field of mastery, our best guides are those with the most direct knowledge.
Nothing parallels authentic Pure Bikram Yoga, the most exciting and effective Yoga Program in the world. Bikram is the yoga handed down with masters from India who introduced yoga to the west more than 50 years ago.
Bikram designed a sequence of postures most every American can do, regardless of age. Unlike more pretzel-ie styles of yoga, Bikram accommodates stiff bodies, round bodies, injuries from accidents, chronic medical conditions, bodies falling apart from poor lifestyles, overuse sport injuries, and almost any other condition you can name.
Bikram’s 26 postures sequence designed for beginner level to advance. Each posture works synergistically and cumulatively to provide a total body workout to every system of the body.
