31
00:01:40,520 –> 00:01:43,759
it’s actually the original hot yoga the

32
00:01:43,759 –> 00:01:45,799
founder of Bikram yoga become Chowdhury

33
00:01:45,799 –> 00:01:48,430
was raised in India and Calcutta and

34
00:01:48,430 –> 00:01:50,600
when he came to the United States and

35
00:01:50,600 –> 00:01:52,460
started teaching yoga he found that the

36
00:01:52,460 –> 00:01:55,460
practice was effective but it wasn’t

37
00:01:55,460 –> 00:01:58,310
quite working like how it did in India

38
00:01:58,310 –> 00:02:01,310
so he added the temperature of Calcutta

39
00:02:01,310 –> 00:02:03,350
to the yoga room and that’s when the

40
00:02:03,350 –> 00:02:04,820
magic started happening for people

41
00:02:04,820 –> 00:02:06,979
because it added the extra element of

42
00:02:06,979 –> 00:02:10,699
detoxification on top of the health

43
00:02:10,699 –> 00:02:14,709
benefits of the yoga postures themselves

44
00:02:15,010 –> 00:02:17,600
and not only does heat promote

45
00:02:17,600 –> 00:02:20,390
detoxification but it also helps loosen

46
00:02:20,390 –> 00:02:21,860
the muscles up so it helps to prevent

47
00:02:21,860 –> 00:02:24,200
injury it helps you to go a little bit

48
00:02:24,200 –> 00:02:26,120
deeper and it actually makes the

49
00:02:26,120 –> 00:02:27,950
postures more comfortable because if you

50
00:02:27,950 –> 00:02:29,480
try to do some of these yoga postures in

51
00:02:29,480 –> 00:02:31,880
a cold room the body is very stiff it’s

52
00:02:31,880 –> 00:02:34,220
rigid they’re hard to do and when you

53
00:02:34,220 –> 00:02:36,140
get into the heat of the room although

54
00:02:36,140 –> 00:02:38,000
it seems you know a little scary for

55
00:02:38,000 –> 00:02:40,489
most people it’s very effective at

56
00:02:40,489 –> 00:02:42,170

58
00:02:45,140 –> 00:02:47,030
a little more deeply than you would if

00:02:47,030 –> 00:02:48,650
you’re just practicing in a room

60
00:02:48,650 –> 00:02:50,720
