The temperature is about 105 F degrees and about 40% humidity.
The room is kept at this temperature or more for the following:
Keeping the body from overheating (contrary to popular misconception)
Protecting the muscles to allow for deeper stretching
Detoxing the body (open pores to let toxins out)
Thinning the blood to clear the circulatory system
Increasing heart rate for better cardiovascular workout
Improving strength by putting muscle tissue in optimal state for reorganization
Reorganize the lipids (fat) in the muscular structureSource(s): http://www.bikramyoga.com/sqa.htm

They are usually around 105 degrees, but I know some go up to 120! I am going to my first bikram class tomorrow. Do you love it? Have any tips?

I somewhat have in no way achieved it myself yet I somewhat have a pal that does it many times various circumstances a week, it sounds severe yet does seem effectual,yet for sure in case your heavily over weight that on my own will no longer make you lose a adequate quantity of weight. eating good and different excerice you want besides. also my pal that does it truly is a 5'foot petite female- i imagine she would seem as if that even if she didnt do it... she also runs ...
