Led by Dr. Stacy Hunter, research director for Pure Action, the Bikram Yoga Heart Study will determine if Bikram Yoga can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease in middle-aged adults at elevated risk.

Data collection is now complete and we hope to publish our findings soon. Stay tuned! To hear more about the Heart Study on SoundCloud, click here.
