Perfect! This yoga is for you! This is the most common misconception that prevents people from coming to yoga classes. Yoga is not about how flexible you are, it’s about stretching your body and spine to develop and increase your flexibility to keep you as young and healthy as you can be. We are all different, but this yoga will help us all.

Come as often as you can. As a beginner do your second class within 24 hours of your first class and do your first 10 classes as quickly as possible. To see maximum benefits from Bikram Yoga, a regular practice of 3 to 4 times per week or at least 10 times a month is suggested. The more you do it, the quicker you will see feel the benefits and see the results!
Weight normalization is one of many benefits of Bikram Yoga. As a beginner, it takes about 3 classes for your body to understand the proper approach to the postures. During the next 10 classes, digestion and respiration, as well as endocrine, lymphatic and elimination systems will begin to work harmoniously. Your appetite will normalize and unhealthy cravings will diminish. All of these results will help to normalize your weight if you devote yourself to regular practice at least, but preferably more than, 3 times per week. Also make sure to eat 2 - 3 health meals per day, don't eat late at night and sip on hot water or ginger tea.
