The new yoga is a selected series of 26 hatha yoga postures designed by Yogi Bikram Choudhury. The asanas are performed in a room with temperature of 40 degrees. Bikram yoga is based on a combination of balance and resistance.

The heat will clean out all toxins from the system and purify the blood, it has been claimed. "40 degrees is a safe temperature to stretch and work out in as the muscles stretch more easily in the heat and the joints work better, allowing you to push deeper into the stretch," said a Bikram yoga teacher from London.

Nevertheless, consumers must be aware that they must practice yoga with a qualified teacher to avoid injuries.
