New from yoga

A unique form of yoga that stretches you out and makes you sweat profusely is now available in the Charleston area. Yoga instructor David Kiser on Saturday opened the first Bikram Yoga studio in a 3,600-square-foot space at 1973 Riviera Drive in the Seaside Farms Shopping Center in Mount Pleasant.

Bikram (pronounced BEEK-ram) is a series of two stretches and 26 poses performed in a room maintained at a low-humidity temperature of 105 degrees.

It promotes profuse sweating to rid the body of toxins, increase flexibility, prevent injuries and relieve stress and tension.

It is designed to restore health to every muscle, joint and organ of the body, Kiser said.

Kiser has taught Bikram Yoga throughout the U.S. and abroad.

With yoga, he lost more than 80 pounds and experienced dramatic improvement in his lifelong battle with Tourette syndrome, a neurological disorder. The business is called Bikram Yoga Charleston.
