Bikram Yoga is a form of hot yoga. It is named after the founder Bikram Choudhary. It was discovered in the late ’70s. Bikram yoga is practiced in a heated room with a temperature of about 40 degrees Celsius. Bikram yoga contains 26 poses and 2 breathing exercises. Each session lasts for 90 minutes. The yoga instructor tells the students what to do. The instructor announces the pose to be done and students are expected to follow in that manner.

Moksha yoga was created by Jessica Robertson and Ted Grand in 2004. It is also a form of hot yoga. However, the room is not as heated as much as it is in Bikram yoga. The classes are usually 60 to 90 minutes long. Moksha yoga has about 40 poses which the instructor calls out for the student to practice. Moksha session is more calm and composed compared to Bikram sessions.

Moksha and Bikram are known to be two types of yoga that people may do. Bikram is created by Bikram Choudhary. This type of yoga will require people to do different yoga positions in high temperatures. The sessions are normally very precise so people have to do what is being asked by the yoga instructor. The poses will be announced so people would need to know the next steps that they have to do.

Moksha is a newer type of Yoda created by Jessica Robertson and Ted Grand. The temperature will be a little bit lower as compared to Bikram. The main goal of this yoga is to make people become calmer and more composed so that they can relax.

Yoga, a Sanskrit word, originated in India, was meant for having a way of leading a disciplined life mentally, physically, and spiritually. The two most popular types of yoga are Moksha and Bikram. An Indian named Bikram Choudhary founded Bikram yoga. He popularized a form of yoga where practitioners are in a room with a temperature of 104-1050 F with an instructor that has a demanding tone. Its aim is for the yogis to adapt to the hot temperature while doing yoga.


This yoga has 26 complicated yoga poses(2 rounds) to complete in one class. The Moksha yoga, on the other hand, was founded by Jessica Robertson and Ted Grand in 2004. The room is heated to a maximum of 950 F, and the instructor is calmer and gentler compared to Bikram yoga. Forty postures must be completed in a Boshka yoga session.
