Question: A student has shingles. Are there postures that help with this?

Answer: Everything to tolerance. The yoga will help build the immune system.

From another teacher: Shingles can be extremely contagious. Someone who has not had chicken pox or vaccination for chicken pox can get chicken pox from exposure to the shingles virus. Be sure the student is beyond the contagion phase.

So interesting. A teacher recently came down with a case of shingles and couldn’t find anyone that knew whether he should be doing the yoga or not. So he called Bikram. Bikram said the heat is fine, BUT no yoga until the rash is all gone because Bikram said he needed to relax his spine.

Awesome information I wanted to share with you all.
