Inside Bikram Hot Yoga Daly City’s 2,000-square-foot practice space, yogis work through the classic 26-posture Bikram series to strengthen muscle groups across the entire body while centering the mind. The studio’s robust schedule of 90-minute sweat sessions accommodates students of all skill levels, who learn at the flexible feet of a team of instructors certified in the Bikram style. The attentive teachers start 105-degree classes with a deep breathing technique to hone concentration before heading into a sequence of standing poses designed to challenge students’ flexibility, balance, and strength. During the second half of class, pupils perform floor poses, promoting circulation to cleanse organs while purging toxins through sweat, making room for freshly oxygenated blood and fresh donuts. Students must bring a mat, large towel, and water, though rentals are available. So that students can avoid attracting deer as a walking salt lick on the way home, the studio’s spacious locker rooms host roomy showers and space for clean, dry clothes. Parking is also available for four-wheeled friends.
Bikram Hot Yoga Daly City
The instructors at Bikram Hot Yoga Daly City embody a commitment to wellness through the method's 26 postures, having received their certifications from the creator of Bikram yoga himself, Bikram Choudhury. Demonstrating their dedication, the CPR-ready teachers must undergo recertification and win a barefoot-hopscotch tournament on an active volcano every three years, ensuring that they can lead classes in the studio's 105-degree heat.
Their 90-minute sessions bend and stretch through Bikram's poses in a progressive order, a sequence that both warms and limbers up the body's connective tissues. As the steamy temperatures flush out toxins through sweat, newly oxygenated blood refreshes every part of the physique. The staff encourages guests to cultivate a deep understanding of technique rather than a drive to quickly perfect it, reassuring them that "there is no standard of comparison except yourself."
