Bikram Yoga NYC
Situated in the heart of NYC is a Bikram Yoga studio awaiting your arrival. If you are a newcomer or experienced yogi, we have classes that are right for you. If you saw Netflix documentary about sexual allegations involving the founder of bikram yoga, we are not associated with him at all. We simply use the term bikram to refer to the style of yoga that has 26 postures and two breath work patterns in a hot room. If you are wondering, why does the room need to be so hot? According to the original founder the precise sequence of 26 postures and two breathing exercises must be performed within 90 minutes in a heated room, 100 degrees plus, to allow the body to stretch, detoxify, relieve stress, tone, and heal chronic pain such as arthritis, joint aches, knee injuries, back problems, and more. Beginners are encouraged to show up early and stretch in the room to regulate their body to the temperature. After all, doing Bikram yoga in NYC adds a level of shock to the body. Consider you are running into the studio from a cold storm and jumping into a 100 degree plus room.
