After cranking temperatures as high as an equatorial 40 degrees Celsius, Bikram Yoga New Westminster’s instructors lead students of all skill levels through 26 rejuvenating poses in a sanitary, heated room that facilitates deep stretching and detoxifying perspiration. Pose sequences were deliberately developed by Bikram Choudhury to stimulate circulation and target particular muscle groups while the heat loosens joints and wrings out any toxins throwing strobe-light parties within the body’s internal infrastructure. The 90-minute classes are scheduled throughout the week, and rental yoga mats are available ($2), although instructors advise students to purchase or weave their own. Nonporous, antibacterial flooring in each of the two practice spaces and on-site shower facilities ensure that students leave class feeling as clean and refreshed as an angel bathing in Sprite.
Bikram Yoga New Westminster also equips yogis for future flash-yoga sessions with an array of items at its boutique, including yoga-mat sprays and washes ($12.99 each), no-sweat soaps ($10.99), and coconut water ($3+). Additionally, the $20 credit can be applied toward the purchase of a class card ($149+) or a one-year unlimited pass ($888).
