In four intensely heated studio spaces across Manhattan, Bikram Yoga NYC’s instructors lead more than 250 rigorous yoga classes every week with a dedication that moved Details to name the schools to its Best Bikram Studios in America list. With recently updated flooring at each location, the studios’ classes often meet as early as 6 a.m. and continue late into the evenings, allowing students of all ages, fitness levels, and sundial-building competency to make it to sessions. Each 90-minute session consists of two breathing exercises in addition to 26 standing, seated, and reclining poses, which methodically strengthen muscles across the entire body. Meanwhile, the studio spaces’ tropical heat helps to promote healthy organ function by facilitating safer stretches, wringing out toxins through sweat, and pushing freshly oxygenated blood throughout the body with the urgency of an Olympic sprinter trying to catch a bus.
The studios cater to their students’ comfort by renting out yoga mats before class ($5) and opening up their onsite shower facilities, in newly renovated locker rooms at most locations, afterward. New students should prepare for their first session by completing the mandatory waiver and drinking enough water to sink a Spanish galleon.
Bikram Yoga NYC
Way back in 1999, Bikram Yoga NYC opened Manhattan's very first Bikram yoga studio. Word of Bikram yoga's benefits spread as people began experiencing enhanced flexibility, toned muscles, and an improved sense of well-being, and the studio opened three more locations. Now, Bikram Yoga NYC's team of more than 40 certified instructors hosts nearly 300 classes each week, teaching clients how to flow through BIkram Yoga's 26 Hatha postures and two Pranayama breathing exercises.
The 90-minute classes—which start as early as 6 a.m. and end as late as 11:15 p.m.—take place in studios with Flotex anti-microbial flooring. This waterproof flooring protects against germs more effectively than wood floors or cooties shots. Hygiene is particularly important when practicing Bikram yoga, as the 100-degree temperatures cause participants to work up a healthy sweat.
After working every muscle, tendon, ligament, joint, and internal organ in the body, guests can shower off in the locker rooms, which are equipped with organic soap and shampoo and more than 40 lockers. Before they leave, they can grab a cold beverage or pick up some new yoga accessories from the onsite boutique.
