Yoga Concepts / Bikram's Yoga College of India was established in Cranston, Rhode Island in 1985 and offers "Bikram's Hatha Yoga System." Yoga Concepts was the first Bikram Method School established in the Northeast. Bikram's Yoga is a physical fitness approach and a condensed form of the original classical Hatha Yoga series offering some 5,000 years of knowledge and intelligence. The Bikram Method of Hatha Yoga is a 90-minute, comprehensive program. Bikram's technique is specifically tailored for modern lifestyle conditions of stress, overeating, poor posture and aggressive lifestyle. Bikram scientifically designed and choreographed his 26-posture sequence which goes through the whole body, relieving stress; balancing and strengthening the glands, organs, circulation, digestion, and nervous systems; rejuvenating tissue; reshaping muscles, tendons, and weight; while building willpower, self-control, and patience. This class not only conditions the body and mind; it helps to rehabilitate all kinds of injuries.
