Most people who practice Hatha yoga never discover the true power yoga can bring to their lives, remaining stuck in a beginner’s mindset. They become masters of being a beginner. A bit like if you were learning to play the piano and all you had was the book “Piano for Beginners Level 1”.

My mindful approach to Bikram hot yoga has proven to be particularly beneficial to those with stiff, injured and unfit bodies. Recently I received an email asking if I would go through each of the 26 Bikram postures outlining the key steps involved to perform each pose correctly without injury. Yes sure, why not I said.
