Bikram Yoga Toronto East
When Bikram Choudhury shattered his knee, his rehabilitation quest led him to therapeutic yoga. As he followed his regimen, he substantively tweaked it, inventing his own eponymous yoga style: a series of 26 poses executed in a hot yoga studio. At Bikram Yoga Toronto East, the certified instructors are not only well-versed in Bikram’s style, its therapeutic benefits, and human anatomy—they have also trained under Bikram himself, studying for more than 500 hours with him and his staff. This experience pays off as a majority of the studio's classes heavily feature Bikram's sequences of repeated poses. Aiming to share Bikram's teachings with as many students as possible, the studio also offers donation-based classes.
