Best Bikram Yoga DVD Options
Wondering if you can practice Bikram Yoga at home? Great idea, right? Seems like you can just buy a Hot Yoga DVD and crank up the heat…or at least get a closer look at those poses and practice in the privacy of your own cool livingroom!
Seems easy. But somehow the search to find actual Bikram Yoga DVDs is surprisingly difficult.
Bikram Choudhury himself doesn’t yet offer an official Bikram hot yoga DVD including his patented 26 postures series.
It is rumored that there is one in production…and one hot yoga blog does claim to have witnessed Bikram himself shooting segments for it. So, when and if that Bikram yoga video dvd is released on the market, we will be the first to let you know about it (sign up for our newsletter on the right to stay in touch!)
But, in the meantime, no worries dear yogi friends. We have scoured the internet for excellent and comparable solutions, and we present you with the best alternatives for your hot yoga home practice.
The Best Hot Yoga DVDs on the Market
Gabrielle Raiz, The Hot Yoga Doctor, has put together several hot yoga products that are exact replicas of the Bikram Yoga 26 posture series. She offers several variations of classes – such as the standing poses only, all floor poses, a special “one-set-no-savasana” 40 minute class, etc.
The soundtrack on her Bikram Yoga DVD is her voice while teaching a live class, however she has intentionally not included video-tape from a live class. The background is white with still photos of a practitioner doing the posture both correctly and incorrectly. It could be described as a book made into a video with an overlay of live class audio.
This is a great option for someone wanting to break down the poses and practice each one at home in her own time. The Hot Yoga Doctor also offers an extensive manual, CDs and MP3 downloads which can be purchased alone or combined in different packages.
These are also a great hot yoga dvd for beginners.
The Hot Yoga Doctor also has an app you may want to check out.. I have not tried it yet but thought I would share.. it sounds like a great tool for when you can’t get to a hot yoga class.
Hot yoga routine for at home.. with or without the heat.
The Barkan Method of Hot Yoga is a very close cousin of Bikram Yoga. Created by Jimmy Barkan, the system is built on many of the poses and philosophies of Bikram Choudhury and Bishnu Ghosh, but also integrates postures from other styles of yoga as well. A Bikram Yoga student would feel right at home with the Barkan Method Hot Yoga DVD, and she might branch out and learn a few new poses as well. See a clip from the video here.
A real Bikram DVD narrated by Rajashree Choudhury (Bikram’s wife) herself. You just have to be pregnant (smile). It also appears that this is an outdated vintage-type item, as it’s only sold “used” from private Amazon sellers, and it’s not cheap.
Other Bikram Yoga DVD Alternatives
Bikram Yoga Audio CD
This is the 90 minute class script, spoken by Choudhury Bikram himself. Load up your iPhone or iPod, steam up your bathroom or head to the beach, and away you go. You can buy first 1/2 of class, second 1/2 of class, both, or each pose individually
Sometimes I’m asked about Bikram Yoga downloads. There is nothing out there that I know about. I know the Hot Yoga Doctor does offer some downloadable products though.
