Hot Stuff!

Bikram Yoga asana (poses) and locations.

Bikram Yoga is a hot new trend, in more ways than one. It’s a very specific form of yoga developed in the 1970s by Bikram Choudhury, and currently the most popular form of hot yoga. Bikram Yoga consists of 26 asana or postures performed in sequence, and in temperatures of 104 to 105 degrees.

If you read Meredith Rigsby’s story in the October 2011 issue of the magazine and thought Bikram Yoga might be for you, then take a look through our slideshow displaying the 26 asana, republished here with the kind permission of Bikram Choudhury and Bikram’s Yoga College of India.

If you’re not sweating just looking at those postures—seriously, imagine holding the perfectly named Utkatasana or Awkward Pose for more than a few seconds—then peruse the list below, find the Bikram Yoga location closest to you, and get our there and do it!

We’ll meet you afterward for a nice cold drink.
