Bikram Yoga Study

The American Council on Exercise (ACE), known as “America’s Workout Watchdog”, commissioned an independent study from researchers at the University of Wisconsin, LaCrosse to evaluate the physiological responses associated with participating in a Bikram yoga class. Led by John Porcari, PhD, researchers recruited 20 apparently healthy female and male volunteers who all regularly practiced Bikram yoga, and monitored their heart rates and core temperatures throughout a Bikram class. After analyzing data, the researchers observed a steady increase of core temperature, which can pose concern for some participants.
