Heated air seeps into students’ pores as they enter Bikram Yoga Burnaby’s two heated practice rooms, preparing muscles for workouts filled with deep, therapeutic stretches. Mindful of new and old faces alike, the instructors begin to demonstrate the 26 Hatha poses meant to promote health, longevity, and a youthful appearance. Each beginner-friendly pose builds upon the next, summoning cleansing beads of sweat as students flex and bend atop antimicrobial flooring and near wall-length mirrors. Focused breathing exercises help students expel stress with each exhalation, clearing minds of fog and worry.
Before and after classes, students may explore the 11,000-square-foot facility’s other amenities, which range from child care and towel service to showers and a juice bar. Fresh flowers add a hint of nature to the clean, modern lines of marble countertops and lounge tables, where students gather to socialize before heading to the nearby SkyTrain or a flying monkey parked in the studio’s free lot.
