THE STUDIO

Fresh air all the time!
Have you ever experienced the feeling of “short of breath” during Yoga practice although is not hot in the room? Have you asked yourself why?

The lungs and respiratory system get rid of carbon dioxide in the air by breathed out, allowing oxygen in the air to be taken into the body by breathed in. When there are more than 10 people in a room about 80 square meters without an air treatment ventilation, the level of dioxide of carbon increases and the level of oxygen reduces and it is created an unbalanced and unhealthy environment for breathing. In that case you feel dizzy, fatigue, even exhausted due to lack of oxygen.

This is not the case in our hot room!

Our hot room is designed with the best, advanced high - tech heating system. The heating is computer controlled to bring you exactly 40°C and 40% humidity, the ideal environment to practice Bikram Yoga. The air exchange system ensures that fresh treated air is being ventilated during the entire class from outside. The ventilation system is the most important part of the practice, therefore it will always be oxygenated air during the entire class.
The latest generation equipment that makes the difference between amateurs and professionals.

CLARA HUZU

My first contact with yoga, precisely Bikram Yoga, I considered it a "mistake" and this happened in 2011. Although that “mistake” has been proven to be the perfect practice to bridge the gap I had been looking for.

 

When I've discovered yoga, 9 years ago, I was working as a flight attendant at Emirates airline, having the advantage of traveling a lot and was able to practice different styles of Yoga, with different teachers, on different continents. At that moment I was not aware of the benefit and advantage would bring me later in life, being able to accessed to such world wide variety of information about yoga, both practical and theoretical; therefore, today I look back with gratitude and joy that I had such unique opportunity.

 

Then over the next several 4 years, I spent significant time developing a constant personal practice and allowed myself to enrich this practice, both at the cognitive and emotional level, to integrate theoretical knowledge from different workshops, international teachers but also personal practical knowledge.

With all these experiences and with an open heart, I chose to complete my studies and certification at international level directly from the source - in the mystical country of India.

 

The first certification in Ashtanga Yoga was obtained in Mysore, India, March 2015

The second certification in Hatha Yoga in Mysore, India, September 2015.

 

♦ To fulfill my desire and perfect my first most beloved practice "BIKRAM YOGA", in the autumn of 2016, in Thailand, I attended the authentic training course in the institute "Bikram Yoga Collage of India" under the guidance of one of the most Great Yogi of today, Bikram Choudhury, the original founder of this style of yoga.

For the time being, I am the only instructor that offers the original Hot Bikram Yoga, in Bucharest, at the studio I have opened with great enthusiasm, Hot Yoga Romania, in order to bring my humble contribution into this world, thru this magical healing practice.

My true yoga practice is to be useful to others; I am grateful for anyone comes along and gives me the opportunity to fulfill my passion, teaching from the heart a unique therapeutic and original Bikram Yoga session.

 

Few years of teaching yoga I’ve been inspired by the desire to offer more to my yoga classes; that motivated me to attend the university of medicine in Bucharest "Carol Davila" with the profile of balneophysiokinetotherapy, to combine the yoga "mystic" at the emotional level, with "science" at the knowledge level, which have the role of refining and fulfilling my passion regarding the human body and soul.

 

As a teacher, together, YOGA and SCIENCE have amplified my talent to recognize and empathize with each practitioner in my yoga classes, being aware of the physical level of each person and offering posture alternatives. On the other hand, YES, it is true that sometimes, I might take you out of your comfort zone…but then again, my teaching is authentic and active, aiming to balance the mind, body and spirit in each practice. Therefore, if you are looking for "easy and quick fix" - this is not it 😊

 

As a practitioner, at a personal level, during my constant yoga practice I started to connect the dots between physical asana, energetic pathways and emotional aspects of the practice, combined with functional anatomy, mindful movement and understanding of the western sciences to access the physical and energetic systems of the body. Truth has been living and breathing Yoga since I discovered it in 2011, trying my best to ensure to live yoga off the mat as well as the practice on the mat.

 

At my yoga classes you will experience, first, a passionate teacher leading from the heart; second, holistic healing and much FUN, complemented by TECHNICS and PRECISION.

My motto: #HappySpine #HappyMind #HappyLife

 


THE YOGA & THE HEAT 

The Yoga -  yoga practice is well known for healing powers: physically, psychologically and emotionally. Once your physical body feels better, then the energetic body heals and you regain your inner balance.

The Heat - Sweating for health and transformation is something well known from ancient times. There are plenty of examples of people using heat in order to create transformative, healing environments. In fact, Ayurveda makes use of steam baths to induce sweating, both for general health maintenance and to treat other conditions.

When Heat & Yoga blend together the results are guaranteed to maintain a healthier and stronger body, mind and spirit!


BIKRAM CHOUDHURY

The founder of the worldwide Bikram Yoga, Bikram Choudhury born in Calcutta, India in 1946, began learning Hatha Yoga poses at the age of three. At five, he began studying with Bishnu Ghosh, the younger brother of Paramahansa Yogananda (Author of the most popular book on Yoga, The Autobiography of a Yogi). At age thirteen Bikram’s intense practice paid off when he won the first of three consecutive National India Yoga Championships in his teens.

After a catastrophic injury on his right knee at the age of 20, Bikram created a form of hot yoga performed in a series of 26 hatha yoga postures done in a hot environment of 40 °C (104 °F) and 40% humidity. He brought his curative methods of Yoga therapy around the world for more than four decades. There are now over 1650 Bikram Yoga studious worldwide and our studio is the first one in Romania.
