Bikram Yoga Grand Central's Bikram-certified instructors preside over three to six classes each day inside an eco-friendly, 1,200-square-foot studio in Midtown. During the detoxifying yoga sessions, thermostats climb to a sultry 105 degrees in order to limber limbs for 26 different poses. As Half Moon poses loosen obliques and Cobra poses arch backs, a poly-extruded floor accelerates evaporation to keep the space dry and bacteria-free, preventing yogis from having to don uncomfortable hazmat suits during class. Changing rooms and showers help students to smoothly transition between the studio's balmy domain and their next engagements. An expansive, wind-kissed terrace and panoramic windows gird a foyer equipped with Flotex flooring that boasts antimicrobial and waterproof properties.
