Overpower enemies with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one month of unlimited yoga classes at Bikram Yoga Dallas (a $180 value).
The instructors at Bikram Yoga Dallas guide students through a series of invigorating poses in a welcoming, comfortable environment. Before leading classes, each teacher undergoes a nine-week intensive residential training with the founder of the Bikram school of yoga himself, Bikram Choudhury, mastering complex body shapes and advanced thermostat control. The 26 different traditional poses (asanas) team up with two breathing exercises (pranayamas) to strengthen muscles and joints and build sustainable health and wellness. As students limber up in 90-minute sessions, the well-ventilated, high-ceilinged studio is kept at a balmy temperature, boosting metabolism, increasing circulation and detoxification, and banishing argyle yoga sweaters.
Bikram Yoga Dallas’s sleek studio boasts 2,300 square feet of softly lit legroom, peppered with artwork from local painters such as Michael Ledoux. Before and after each class, students are invited to enjoy the comfort of the welcoming lobby, the convenience of the men’s and women’s changing rooms and showers, and the intricate contortions of the Bikram yoga secret handshake.
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.
