Who ever said that hasn’t tried Bikram Yoga (or any yoga for that matter)!
While we love yoga in all its forms, our specialty here at BYC is obviously hot Bikram Yoga and we can tell you that it will rock your world, whoever you are!
Over the years we have had everyone and anyone come though our doors. The beauty of the yoga is that it is for everyone: ballet dancers, professional rugby players, gymnasts, footballers, tennis pros, golf pros, coach potatoes, teachers, bankers, Olympic athletes, models, actors, mums. All sweating, learning, growing and focusing together.
With June seeing major events in both Rugby & Football, we thought we would look a little further into what BYC Hot Yoga can offer these sports women and men -professional to Saturday/Sunday leaguers. BYC Hot Yoga is here to enhance and prolong your career.
For you footballers among us, you are in good company. David Beckham and Ryan Giggs have both been reported to have used Bikram yoga to help the longevity of their careers, both mentally and physically.
When Ian Baraclough took over Motherwell FC he made his team take up Bikram yoga as a trick to keep them injury free.
An article for the Daily record reports: ” Motherwell general manager Alan Burrows said: “Since we’ve started it (Bikram yoga), we’ve hardly had any tissue injuries – in fact, we’ve only had one. So there’s been quick results.”
A BBC article, about the multitude of sports men and women who have taken up Bikram hot yoga as an important tool in their training, reports: “A lot of athletes are turning to Bikram yoga because it undoes the wear and tear.” Michele Pernetta, who has 23 years teaching experince and owned 4 bikram yoga studios, before she launched her own hot yoga Fierce Grace, told BBC Sport.
Michele knows this from experience. She even put a high-level martial artist, runner, boxer, rugby player and golfer through a week of classes to see how much damage sport had done to their bodies, and how Bikram could help heal. “After seven days, all the athletes showed improvement with noticeable loosening of their joints and improved flexibility.”
Even the boxers are at it: back in 2012, Mayweather told the Las Vegas Sun that he had never stretched in his entire career until he began doing Bikram yoga. “I think I can push myself and perform a lot better with yoga.”
However benefits to BYC hot yoga are not solely physical, as any Bikram yogi/ini can tell you, BYC hot yoga also helps control the breath, improve focus and calm the mind.
So, whoever you are, whatever your goal, get in the room and see what BYC hot yoga can do for you today!
