Find a location in your home that you can isolate heat and humidity. For most people, a bathroom works well.
Turn the shower on hot and let the room begin to steam and heat up. If you have a humidifier turn it on as well. The room should become very hot and humid. Another option to increase the temperature is to turn on the heater. This though is up to you as it will heat up the entire home unless you have specialised heating.
Dress in warm clothing to increase the heat intake of your body. Long sleeves and socks are recommended.
Turn on some soothing music. Begin the Bikram yoga routine as learnt in classes or DVDs. If you have a portable DVD player you can place that in the room and follow it.
Relax at the end of your yoga workout by laying or sitting down and breathing in the hot, moist air.
