Bikram Yoga Danbury's instructors have mastered Bikram yoga, which pairs 105-degree rooms with the body stretching and contorting of typical yoga. Bikram yogis lovingly call their rooms “Torture Chambers,” due to the sweltering temperature and the 26 muscle-testing, seated, standing, and levitating poses that comprise each class session. The studio schedules morning sessions as early as 6:30 a.m. and fills its evenings with pulse-elevating classes and calming silent fireworks displays. Though the studio rents out yoga mats and towels and sells bottled water, the instructors advise students prepare for class by hydrating thoroughly and bringing along their own mat to allow for appropriate bonding between yogi and sticky mat.
