Our Lineage

 

Our classes are derived from the Ghosh Hatha yoga lineage made famous by Bikram Choudhury. 

 

Bishnu Charan Ghosh, brother of Yogananda, established Ghosh's College of Physical Education program in 1923 in Calcutta, India. During this time he developed a system for creating optimal health by combining strength training with yoga.  Sweaty Buddha carries on the spirit of his legacy by creating dynamic therapeutic classes that merge the wisdom of Ghosh's lineage with the science of today.

Bikram Yoga 90

 

Bikram Yoga 90 is a beginning level class that consists of 26 postures derived from the Ghosh lineage. Practiced in a room heated up to 105 degrees, the series was created for total body health.  It works the body from the inside out, addressing every bone, muscle, organ and ligament. Class is 90 minutes long and is appropriate for people of all ages, body types, and levels of experience, including those with injuries who are looking to heal the body.

You are never too old, never too bad, never too late and never too sick to start from scratch once again""

Silent Bikram

 

Accompanied by music, our Silent Bikram is a 75 minute class done without the instruction of a teacher. Made up of the same sequence as our Bikram class, this practice allows the student to explore the postures on a different level. 

 

Since no instruction is given, some experience with the practice is necessary before taking this class.

 

“Yoga is 99 percent practice and one percent theory.”
