About Craig Villani
Former Director of Education and Teacher Training for Bikram Yoga Worldwide, Craig explains that the Bikram Method of hatha yoga integrates Raja Yoga – the yoga of the mind – into the physical practice, with “emphasis placed on the healing benefits attained through maintaining depth of expression relative to proper application of form.” In other words: the body, not the posture, is the object.
By experiencing faith, self-control, determination, concentration and patience within the hot room, Bikram Yoga practitioners not only transform their physical bodies, but also learn to effectively regain control of their minds. “Concentration, meditation and awareness of breath – these are the fundamental skills that are to be continuously evolved and applied through the mindful practice of Bikram Yoga,” he says.
