The dedicated yoga instructors at Bikram Yoga Westfield stretch students of all experience levels with a full schedule of muscle-toning, cardiovascular classes. During 90-minute Bikram classes, students increase heart rates in up to 26 poses drawn Bikram traditions and Gumby’s yearbook photos. During sessions, studio temperatures can rise to 105 degrees to usher toxins out through the pores and encourage flexible bends while breathing exercises melt stress. In the yellow and blue hued room, mirrors help patrons make adjustments to poise and let yoga mats overcome crippling stage fright on the carpeted floor.
Sweat removes toxins from the body. Fevers burn away unwelcome invaders. Heat allows muscles to extend and contract further. Heat can be healthy, a lesson Bikram Choudhury embraced when he moved his yogic practice into a 105-degree room, 2 degrees hotter than the average temperature inside a yak. The idea caught on, spreading around the world and eventually coming to Bikram Yoga Westfield in the form of Bikram-certified teachers. They lead Bikram's classic series of 26 asanas and two breathing exercises, a 90-minute session of stretching in which each pose builds upon the benefits of the last. In addition to their signature heated yoga, the staff members also facilitate wellness with massage services, holistic nutritional counseling, and even CrossFit coaching through their sister organization, CrossFit Westfield.
