Bikram yoga became popular after a study concluded the high heat was the main reason grandpas normally emerge from gym saunas feeling relaxed, limber, and totally nude.

Students of all skill levels and lifestyles can glisten their way through 26 yoga postures and two breathing exercises during classes at Bikram Yoga St. Augustine, which take place in a room heated to 100 degrees and hotter. Bikram's beginning series provides a posture flow that exercises every muscle, tendon, joint, and ligament while challenging each student according to his or her level of ability, from beginning yogi to asana-master. During the 90-minute sessions, certified instructors guide students through a series of poses designed to promote a balanced system, healthy weight, muscle tone, and mental clarity.
Yoga mats, towels, and water bottles are required for Bikram yoga—students can bring their own posture-panoply or rent or purchase items from the studio. Bikram Yoga St. Augustine also features an onsite child-care center to help lend yogi-like flexibility to busy schedules ($4 per child, per class).
