with practicing Bikram Yoga both

28
00:00:53,340 –> 00:00:56,100
physical mentally and spiritually the

29
00:00:56,100 –> 00:00:58,440
spiritual aspect sort of creeps up on

30
00:00:58,440 –> 00:01:00,030
you because you’re in there working so

31
00:01:00,030 –> 00:01:02,280
hard challenging yourself yeah oh you’re

32
00:01:02,280 –> 00:01:04,650
ugly and straining and the first thing

33
00:01:04,650 –> 00:01:05,850
that you see are the physical benefits

34
00:01:05,850 –> 00:01:08,310
the body starts to slim down and you

35
00:01:08,310 –> 00:01:10,680
start to tone up and then the mental

36
00:01:10,680 –> 00:01:13,380
benefits the stress factor lesson that

37
00:01:13,380 –> 00:01:15,540
solutely and then you find yourself just

38
00:01:15,540 –> 00:01:17,729
able to so much better deal with all the

39
00:01:17,729 –> 00:01:19,680
challenges that come to us every day

40
00:01:19,680 –> 00:01:21,330
especially now especially in here so

41
00:01:21,330 –> 00:01:23,250
it’s so important exactly now we talk

42
00:01:23,250 –> 00:01:24,869
about bikram yoga it is hot yoga the

43
00:01:24,869 –> 00:01:27,210
room is generally 100 degrees plus for

44
00:01:27,210 –> 00:01:29,130
those of you but and the benefits of

45
00:01:29,130 –> 00:01:30,540
that of the ability to stretch which

46
00:01:30,540 –> 00:01:31,979
yoga is about stretching it’s not a

47
00:01:31,979 –> 00:01:33,780
calisthenic on it it’s about stretch

48
00:01:33,780 –> 00:01:35,670
right it’s more about the stretching of

49
00:01:35,670 –> 00:01:38,070
the body the alignment of the body also

50
00:01:38,070 –> 00:01:39,840
he also helps release the toxins from

51
00:01:39,840 –> 00:01:41,520
the body as well mm-hmm so that’s

52
00:01:41,520 –> 00:01:43,259
