Certified regular and guest instructors at Bikram Yoga Greater Portland guides groups through yoga poses and breathing exercises inside rooms heated to a temperature of 105 degrees or higher. Flow through up to 26 postures of varying difficulty in each 90-minute session, taking slow breaths through the nose and focusing on stillness so as not to disturb temperamental motion sensors. By encouraging perspiration, the practice of Bikram yoga may help to facilitate weight loss, lower high blood pressure and stress, and reduce pain from physical injuries. Bikram Yoga Greater Portland threw open the doors of their newest location, in Tigard, in May 2013; the spacious studio floods with natural light from a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows on one side of the space. The Portland studio's 2,500-square-foot space is guarded by a lobby decorated with subtle colors and natural light from large windows. Both locations are equipped with showers for men and women, each stocked with robes to keep post-workout skin from huddling up under the hair upon encountering cooler temps.

Bouldering differs from other forms of rock climbing in a variety of ways, such as its heightened social element. When top roping, for example, climbers are more isolated, relying on a partner below to maintain rope tension. But because bouldering is done on lower courses that don't require a rope or harness, climbers are free to scale walls at will, often resulting in people sharing walls and striking up conversations in between surmounting terrain such as verticals, slabs, and roof climbs?overhangs that put climbers' bodies parallel to the floor. That's how The Circuit Bouldering Gym got started. Some bouldering enthusiasts crossed paths at a local gym and found they all wanted to expand Portland's bouldering options. Today, they welcome guests to surmount courses?including a hanging boulder?ranging from 8- to 17-feet high and surrounded by crash-pad flooring. Boasting three of the largest bouldering-only gyms in the world, they also designed many of their simulated climbing stations as top-out boulders, letting guests experience what it's like to stand atop a boulder in the Rockies or on the moon. Additionally, they instruct guests with programs such as 90-minute intro courses, advanced clinics with professional climber athletes, and programs tailored for kids including birthday parties,summer and winter-break camps. Between climbs, a lounge area lets visitors relax and swap tales of defying gravity's relentless bullying. The third and newest location in Tigard offers more than 19,000 square feet of brand new boulders. To further build the bouldering community, the gym's team organizes an annual fundraiser benefiting local charities. All locations also have a full weights area, allowing for workouts and CrossFit training between climbs. .
