"Never too old, never too sick, never too late to do yoga and start from scratch once again"
Hello! Thanks for visiting our website. We are a Bikram Yoga studio, the original Hot Yoga. The 26 postures of Bikram Yoga are held, with stillness between each posture, for 10 to 60 seconds each. This is vigorous yoga, challenging for all levels but accessible to all levels. It is beginning-level yoga that is practiced throughout a lifetime for continuing development and benefit.
The class starts with breathing and ends with breathing. A series of warm-ups, balancing postures, and stretching postures are done standing. The floor postures include a series of spine strengthening postures, stretching and compression postures, and the final breathing leaves you completely relaxed, worked from the inside out, bones to skin, fingertips to the toes.
Class is 90 minutes in a hot room. We also have 60 minute classes for the way we really live now, noon Monday through Friday and 6:30p.m. Tuesday and Thursday. The room is 105 degrees, with controlled humidity. Bikram calls this his torture chamber... but don't worry, don't be scared, you can do this! The heat protects you from injury and helps to eliminate toxins by making you sweat - a lot!
Our teachers are Bikram certified teachers, well qualified to lead you through the most fun and effective yoga class in the world. Work your body from the inside out... every muscle, joint, ligament, tendon, gland and organ.
Anyone can do this. All fitness levels are welcome, all ages are welcome. You are only expected to listen, follow instructions to the best of your ability, and stay in the room. You will quickly find yourself gaining amazing strength and balance, doing things you would never have believed you could do, and feeling better in your body than you ever thought possible.
If you meant to get started but for some reason you are waiting to begin, how about now? It is never too late. Think you need to feel better first? Practice, it will make you feel better -- never too sick. Think you can't because you're not so young any more? You are never too old. Feeling the pinch and think you can't afford it? See our rates page for amazing prices. We trade for classes, too. Scared a little? Lots of us felt that way to start out. See the class schedule and preparation page for how to prepare.
Time passes, everything changes. Everything will always change. It's your choice, change for the better, practice Bikram Yoga. Begin your practice, pick up your practice. Practice every day. See your life unfold and renew.
