Yoga is increasingly becoming popular among the people across the globe, owing to its relaxation, exercise, and other health benefits. Bikram yoga is one of the most famous types of yoga forms around the world. It is one of the widely practiced forms of exercise today in which the person accomplishes a sequence of 26 poses and two different breathing workouts in a hot or heated room. The temperature of the room where this form of exercise is practiced is set to 105 degrees Fahrenheit with over 40% humidity. This is why this type of training is also called as hot yoga. This kind of exercise is primarily practiced globally with an aim to improve mental and physical health naturally.
