Bikram in the Shire
26 & 2
What you need to know!
The repetition of Bikram’s series allows beginners to develop concentration and body mind awareness.
Each posture is completed twice. First set warming you up, second set enables you to work deeper.
Between each set and each pose, twenty seconds of rest (savasana) is taken, which allows complete relaxation while the oxygenated blood equalises and moves to all parts of the body.
Mirrors are used to observe the body objectively, improving body awareness and refining body alignment. The constant eye contact with yourself reinforces the process as an open eye meditation.
All classes are 90 minutes long and suitable for beginners and advanced students alike.
The teacher provides a constant dialogue with precise instructions. This teaches each student to listen, keeps the class moving together and quiets the mind to maintain stillness.
