Bikram Yoga was brought to the US in the 70’s by Bikram Choudhury and became the most widely known form of hot yoga. Yoga originated in India (where Bikram Choudhury is from) and seeks to replicate heat and humidity found in India. Hot yoga is performed in a studio room resting at 105 degrees Fahrenheit and 40% humidity. While it sounds hard (and it is) it is worth every moment. Enduring hot yoga comes with a number of perks.
