Pure Action with Jeff Chen
Limited Capacity seats available

PURE Action's mission is to connect the benefits of yoga to mainstream medicine through research and education. Formed in 2010 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, we have funded several research studies that we will discuss and share with you. Several of these involve Hot Yoga, including our recent "Bikram Yoga Heart Study," which compared the benefits of heated (105 degrees) and nonheated (75 degrees) protocols. Great for teachers, studio owners, and anyone interested in why Hot Yoga works!
