- Choudhury accomplishes this by getting you into a 90-minute class that involves performing a sequence of 26 poses and two breathing exercises in stifling 105-degree heat. Bikram says the heat helps foster your muscles' flexibility, so it's easier and safer to stretch. He also says the heat promotes detoxification through sweating and provides a more intense cardiovascular workout. – Julie Deardorff, Chicago Tribune

Bikram Yoga Dallas
When Karen and David first met at the Bikram College of India in Los Angeles, they could barely believe that they had grown up within spitting distance of one another in their hometown of Houston, Texas. Through their intense nine-week, 500 hours of training, they grew closer, swapping stories about the unfulfilling corporate lives they had left behind. It wasn't until David returned to Texas and Karen to Portland that they realized they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. After Karen returned to her home state to be with David, the pair embarked on the biggest adventure of their lives: scouring the earth for scissors big enough to cut the grand-opening ribbon to Bikram Yoga Dallas in tandem.
The duo outfitted their spacious studio with soft, eco-friendly flooring and gigantic windows in the heated, ventilated space. They corralled a troupe of passionate, Bikram-certified instructors to help lead the 60-minute and 90-minute classes that strengthen students with 26 postures. To keep the space community-oriented and students engaged, Karen and David offer offer special events like posture workshops, 30-day and 60-day yoga challenges, and more.
