Each member of Bikram Yoga Canada’s talented team of instructors possesses a sage yogic know-how borne of their participation in a 10-week certification course taught by Bikram Choudhury in California. Over the course of this rigorous program, the posing pedagogues learned the essentials of heated movement modality, spending hours stuffing their brains with wisdom ranging from yoga philosophy and anatomy to a detailed study of each pose. While the world-renowned course provides the team with an unshakable foundation, the instructors—firm believers that learning is a never-ending endeavour—undergo re-certification every three years to ensure that they remain abreast of current practices. With this impeccably trained and passionate staff at the helm of every sweat-inducing class, Bikram Yoga Canada offers students of all experience levels a chance to experience the physical detoxification afforded by stretching sessions within their balmy studio. During each class, the instructors put their hard-earned teaching skills into practice as they lead pupils through a series of 26 postures, known as asanas, designed to warm and stretch muscles, ligaments, and tendons while melting away tension and the frozen dinners stored in the hearts of pupils.

In addition to bolstering the body, these programs strengthen the will to achieve, propelling exercisers toward goals faster than an espresso-fuelled hockey puck. Calming fitness classes such as yoga and Pilates unite the mind and body with deep stretches, focused core exercises, and measured-breathing techniques. Club members can torch calories with solo sessions on the clubs’ cardio machines or during boot camps, cycling routines, and Zumba dance parties that cultivate friendships while boosting energy and endurance. Post-workout, spa-like locker rooms and couch-lined cafés invite exercisers to relax and recharge.
