What Is Hot26?
Autobiography of a Yogi

Hot26 is a system of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises that are performed in a specific sequence and order to flush out every system of the body while creating strength, flexibility, focus, and endurance.  This system was designed scientifically and systematically to help heal and balance all body types- no matter your experience, skill level, or current state of health.  The yoga postures performed in this sequence are from the Ghosh lineage.  

Paramahansa Yogananda's little brother, Bishnu Ghosh founded the College of Physical Education in Calcutta, India in 1923 and was Bikram Choudhury's teacher.  Bikram Choudhury added heat to the postures he had learned from his guru while teaching in Japan in the 1960's when he discovered the benefits of heat therapy.   He brought the class of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises to Hollywood in 1974 where he started the Yoga College of India.  

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

-Bishnu Ghosh

Over the past 40+ years, the Hot26 class has helped millions of people all over the world heal their bodies, strengthen their minds, and gain a better self-awareness.  This class has lasted for this long because it works.  Not only does this class help you develop balance, strength, self control, and flexibility, it also teaches you patience, self-acceptance, endurance, and focus.
