The yoga masters at Bikram Yoga of Santa Rosa guide yogis of all skill levels through a series of 26 sweltering asanas in a newly renovated studio. During body-bending sessions, instructors crank thermostats to loosen muscles and coax sweat from pores, flushing the body of harmful toxins while allowing flexibles to nourish chakras with deeper stretches and reduced risk of conjoined hamstrings. After 1.5 hours of evicting calories, participants can rinse away brackish sweat in the new shower facilities. The studio encourages attendees to bring their own mats and towels, but for those whose supply currently remains tied up in children's breakdance forts, mats ($1) and towels ($2) are available to rent. Check the schedule for class times.
Bikram Yoga of Santa Rosa
A love for the outdoors fuels Rebecca Pennington, Bikram Yoga of Santa Rosa’s owner, who spent eight years as a wilderness adventure guide and backpacked 1,700 miles of the Pacific Coast Trail. When her knee gave out from overuse, she was devastated, turning to Bikram yoga in hopes of healing her injury. Eight years later, the pain in her knee is gone, and she has continued playing sports. Inspired by her experience, she’s taken over Bikram Yoga of Santa Rosa with a goal of extending the practice’s healing benefits to others. Her troupe of certified instructors leads students through 90-minute classes, flowing through 26 postures and two breathing exercises, each building on the previous pose to build strength and flexibility. The studio is heated to a balmy 105 degrees, which helps loosen up muscles, flush out bodily toxins, and identify any students concealing snowballs in their backpacks.
