Bikram Yoga Riverdale Park
The three instructors behind Bikram Yoga Riverdale Park each followed their own path to mastering the discipline. After knee surgery, Kendra thought she would never be able to practice certain forms of exercise again. She defied this prognosis by devoting herself to Bikram yoga. Her fellow certified instructor, LaShone, shared yoga with children through courses in basic postures, storytelling, and music. She has also been trained to help students on the Autism spectrum apply yoga to their unique needs. As the studio's community engagement specialist, Lee relies on her background in marketing to spread the word about yoga as she pursues her own practice. Though they each come from different backgrounds, they're united in their belief that Bikram yoga offers the most versatile, wellness-driven exercise out there.
During the 90-minute class, temperatures soar to 105 degrees and 50 percent humidity. This keeps muscles limber, releases toxins, and encourages empathy for rainforest animals. As heart rates increase, students move through 26 challenging poses and two breathing exercises.In addition to classes, the studio works to ensure that students arrive with stress-free minds; their childcare program keeps kids entertained while parents find their center, and their juice bar refreshes thirsty yogis with healthy post-class drinks.
