Yes, Bikram Yoga was originally designed because of its healing benefits.  It assists in recovery and healing from many different illnesses and injuries. The increased circulation of oxygenated blood throughout the body helps to heal injuries faster and also works to boost the immune system. If you have injuries or illnesses that you are concerned about please come in and talk to us or refer to Bikram's website ( for answers to many of these questions about injuries. If needed we can always give you modifications to certain postures until you are well enough to do them as regularly intended.
