Inside 26Hot’s steamy studio, a band of certified Bikram instructors lead more than 30 Bikram yoga classes each week, helping students of all abilities hone strength and flexibility. Students gather in the 1,800-square-foot, 105-degree practice space for all scheduled classes, where they begin the 26-posture Bikram practice with a deep-breathing exercise. For 90 minutes, students work through a series of standing and seated poses in a specific order, working muscle groups across the entire body and pumping freshly oxygenated blood to glands, internal organs, and internal blood-filtering stations. The humid heat helps limbs sink deeper into twists, binds, and balances, helping to improve flexibility and raid the body’s toxin cabinet. Each 90-minute session concludes with a final breathing exercise before yogis hit the locker rooms for men or women, where they can catch a hydrating shower to rinse away sweat, grime, and stubborn birthmarks. Instructors recommend drinking plenty of water before class and toting along the necessary fitness accouterments, although the studio stocks mats ($3) and towels ($1) to rent or adopt.

The certified Bikram yoga instructors at 26Hot draw students from all over the western suburbs to their facility, conveniently located near the Roosevelt Road exit of I-355. Within the 1,800-square-foot space, which is kept at 105 degrees and 40% humidity, yogis move through 26 postures designed to build muscle and cardiovascular health. The one-legged balancing stick pose, for example, puts bodies into a T formation, and the tree pose encourages birds to alight on squared shoulders.
The studio's reception area appropriately greets students with fiery-red couches and warm-yellow walls. At the desk, students can rent yoga mats and towels or purchase beverages such as chilled coconut water.
