It takes an extensive, nine-week training program—during which one must attend yoga lectures, practice Bikram yoga in a 105-degree-room at least twice a day, and complete a comprehensive training regimen—to achieve a license to teach Bikram yoga. Renowned yogi Bikram Choudhury passes down his wisdom during this program, and every single member of Bikram Yoga Memphis’s staff has been there to receive it. Today, in classes taught seven days a week, they share the exercises and lessons they learned in that fiery classroom.
The recently renovated 1,400-square-foot classroom at Bikram Yoga Memphis features industrial-heating equipment capable of melting stiffness in muscles as if it were a popsicle on the sun.
