Na Hatha Yoga verovert nu ook Bikram Yoga Nederland, Yoga in een ruimte waar het zo'n 40 graden is. Zes jaar geleden kwam de eerste Bikram school, nu zijn het er al vijf in de grote steden. Deze week krijgen ze bezoek van één van de bekendste Yoga docenten ter wereld, Mary Jarvis uit Amerika. Onze verslaggever sprak met haar en zweette een lesje mee.

Born in Kolkata, India, Rajashree Choudhury started her yoga training at the urging of her parents at age four. She was a five-time winner of the All-India Yoga Championship from 1979 to 1983. After studying at Mahila Yoga Byam Kendra, Gosh's College of Physical Education and Yoga Training Institute, she received her Certification in Hatha Yoga Therapy for chronic diseases and disorders.

With over 15 years in the East and 25 years in the West, Rajashree's special focus has been on the emotional side of yoga and how yoga balances the energy of the human body and impacts not only disease, but also affects the body/mind/soul connection which constitutes vibrant health.
