The Programs

26-n-2

This is known as the ‘Bikram Method.’ Bikram Method Hatha Yoga includes 26 asanas and 2 pranayama (26-n-2) techniques performed during a 90 minute practice session in an environmentally controlled practice facility [103 – 105°F / 38 – 40% RH].

It is a sequence developed, in-part, by our instructor, Bikram Choudhury, using 26 out of 84 asanas from his Guru, Bishnu Ghosh. Bishnu Ghosh was a preeminent leader of India’s Physical Culture Movement in the 20th century. He is also the younger brother of Makunda Lal Ghosh, aka, Paramahansa Yogananda, founder of the Self-Realization Fellowship in Los Angeles, California and author of, “Autobiography of a Yogi.”

This Hatha Yoga Method was developed and evolved through the most esteemed lineage in the following order:

Mahavatar Babaji, Lahiri Mahasaya, Yukteshwar Giri, Makunda Lal Ghosh, Bishnu Ghosh, Bikram Choudhury, Hot Yoga 1000 Instructors, You.

This training and practice is suitable for beginners as well as advanced Hatha Yoga students and instructors. It also encompasses a deep therapeutic healing component unparalleled for substance abuse recovery, PTSD recovery, surgical recovery, and prevention of cardiovascular disease, and other diseases affecting mankind.

The method holistically strengthens, detoxes, balances, and heals all components of the human body. We focus on a tensegrity model of the body enhancing the function and performance of the 11-body systems; circulatory, digestive, endocrine, immune, integumentary, lymphatic, muscular, nervous, reproductive, respiratory, and skeletal systems. Development and mastery of the 26-n-2 ensures balanced weight, muscle tone, optimal health, mental clarity, emotional poise, energetic stability, and a sense of overall well-being along with associated outstanding performance in life’s daily activities.

CORE-40

This advanced series consists of a 90-minute session comprised of 40 asanas with 2 pranayama techniques. Its focus on the core and spine complements and extends the 26-n-2 but does not replace it. The CORE-40 sequentially works the smooth, cardiac, and skeletal muscles in an extensive fashion extending the breadth and depth of the 26-n-2 while promoting hip openers. The practice room environment is adjusted to facilitate the additional strength requirements demanded by the CORE-40 training. It is suitable for 26-n-2 beginner through intermediate and advanced level practitioners.

Detoxification, Recovery, and Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Program (DRCDPP)

The Hot Yoga 1000 Teacher Training Program is inherently detoxifying, strengthening, and transformative. It is designed to bring a life back into productive and natural balance no matter how challenging life is, or has been. We not only positively change all aspects of the human body and mind, the requirements of the program dictate proper rest; consistent ingestion of nutrient dense food; essential hydration; the cessation of smoking, alcohol consumption, use and abuse of foreign substances, even caffeine; no ingestion of processed sweeteners; elimination of any dependence on predominantly processed and ‘fast’ foods; especially recognized ‘non-foods.’

Stress, anxiety, fear, low self-esteem, unhealthy habits and attitudes, as well as PTSD associated with life’s traumas all fade away under the rigors of this in-depth, yet cathartic program.

Confidentiality and compassion are the hallmarks of what we do and teach. We encourage all those who are looking for a transformative experience with the end result being restored health, functionality, and happiness to attend the Hot Yoga 1000 DRCDPP.

We highly recommend total immersion in this program. It is suggested that all participants in the Hot Yoga 1000 Teacher Training Program, especially those in the DRCDPP, reserve lodging within 1-mile of Hot Yoga 1000. Success may involve separation from the environment associated with the conditions that supported or encouraged the situation(s) that the DRCDPP participant is aspiring to overcome.

On the other hand, for the Hatha Yoga Teacher Trainee, success may involve disengagement from the outside demands of daily living by reserving 9-weeks of space for yourself and your Yoga studies in a hotel setting of your choice.

Please feel free to contact us or call 805-375-1113 for lodging recommendations and program support.

Please provide proof of examination and program participation approval from a medical doctor along with your tuition payment.
