The holiday season is filled with peace, love and goodwill. Unfortunately, as much as we hate to admit it, the holidays can also be filled with stress, strife and self-doubt. There are many ways people relieve stress over the holidays. They overeat, they drink too much or they get plain grumpy and forget what the holidays are all about. There is a better way to de-stress this year.

Bikram Hot Yoga is a proven technique to relieve stress all year long and the holiday season is the perfect time to start. The yoga class will not resemble the North Pole, as temperatures climb to 105 degrees and the humidity is about half. Bikram Hot Yoga has been shown to relieve tension, relax muscles and give you a much needed sense of peace.

The practice is also good for your health. It may seem like everyone gets sick at the holidays and this is a great way to fight back. Bikram Hot Yoga promotes health throughout your entire body including your joints and organs. Your liver will be much better off with yoga then it will with a bottle of wine.

Bikram Hot Yoga can release toxins from your body. Toxic build up can leave you feeling awful. Releasing the toxins, including the stress reducing hormone cortisol, can simply sweat the stress right out of you. You may feel as if you are melting but if all the angst melts away too then it could be the best tool in your arsenal of holiday tricks.
