"Torture chambers"—that's what Bikram Yoga's founder Bikram Choudhury calls his yoga studios. It's an apropos name for places set at a blazing 105 degrees that feature students twisting their bodies into 26 yoga postures as Bikram shouts: "Lock the knee!" "Lock the knee!" at someone who isn't quite into the desired position.
It might sound unpleasant, but Choudhury believes that if you follow his instructions, which were passed on to Bikram Yoga Dallas's teachers through intense nine-week courses with the guru himself, you'll "live a better, healthier and more peaceful life.”
Bikram Yoga Dallas helps people follow Choudhury's teachings in 2,300-square-foot rooms with 18-feet-tall ceilings, soft, eco-friendly flooring, and a state-of-the-art heating system that circulates fresh air throughout the room. After students tackle the 26 postures, they can gaze at the walls filled with artwork from local artists such as George Foster and Michael Ledoux, who was commissioned to provide the art for the Dallas Omni hotel.
Bikram Yoga Dallas
When Karen and David first met at the Bikram College of India in Los Angeles, they could barely believe that they had grown up within spitting distance of one another in their hometown of Houston, Texas. Through their intense nine-week, 500 hours of training, they grew closer, swapping stories about the unfulfilling corporate lives they had left behind. It wasn't until David returned to Texas and Karen to Portland that they realized they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. After Karen returned to her home state to be with David, the pair embarked on the biggest adventure of their lives: scouring the earth for scissors big enough to cut the grand-opening ribbon to Bikram Yoga Dallas in tandem.
The duo outfitted their spacious 2,300-square-foot sanctuary with soft, eco-friendly flooring and gigantic windows that flood the heated studio with sunlight. They corralled a troupe of passionate, Bikram-certified instructors to help lead the 90-minute classes that strengthen students with 26 postures. To keep the space community-oriented, Karen and David offer special events such as new student orientations, posture workshops, yoga challenges and celebration parties.
