Yes! Bikram yoga helps heal old injuries and prevent new ones. The heat is therapeutic for your muscles, joints, and tissue. For existing injuries and medical conditions, the healing process can be supported by the continued practice of Bikram yoga. We ask students to notify the instructor so she can help you during class and make sure we’ve placed an alert in your file. The general guide when practicing with an injury is: take it easy, listen to your body, and perform postures to your tolerance level. Sharp, pinpoint pain should be avoided—that’s when you should back off! Also, please consult your doctor about physical exercise with regard to your unique injury.
