There are many accounts of how hot yoga has helped people with injuries that would not heal through conventional means or with chronic health problems. What stands out for me with the Bikram Yoga Calgary South is how the studio is operated. I was told the best place to put my mat on my first day of classes by the instructor. As I struggled my way through the standing series the instructor would come over to me and tell me we only had a few poses left, then we would be on the floor for the rest of the class. Right from the beginning Megan,one of the instructors, made it very clear that we were to take breaks when needed.
As I continued with classes my fitness has improved and unlike the beginning when I thought class would never end, I now find myself saying "are we at this point already". Regardless the number of people in a class I never felt lost in the crowd, as I would hear my "Pat straighten your legs" I have learned this happens for two reasons. The instructors watch carefully so that people do not move in a way that will harm them, and when they feel you are ready to improve your pose. Technique is stressed over bending further or deeper or lifting higher.
All the instructors are friendly and caring and encourage questions after each session. I have noticed many benefits from Bikram's Hot Yoga. I am able to sleep through the night without pains and stiffness that would wake me up. I find my posture and how I walk has improved and the slacks I wore last summer are too big now.
I encourage you to try hot yoga and to try it at this studio. Pat Fitzsimmons
