So many people come to class with injuries they've had for years and find relief from the pain and inflammation that has plagued them, others use it as an extra training modality for other things they do in life, running, triathlons, kite surfing and more. My husband was a professional athlete, being trained in soccer for most of his life, and excelled at sports, yet when he found Bikram yoga, it opened him up to a world where he sustained much less injuries but gained more mobility and dexterity, and combined with good nutrition, meant that he didn't lose muscles, but kept them toned and certainly gained more flexibility and also a better mindset mentally.
As Bikram always says:
never too late and never too sick
to start from the scratch once again.”
