Bikram Yoga San Antonio’s crew of enthusiastic instructors patiently perfects poise and eases tension during challenging Bikram yoga classes at three studio locations. During the 90-minute Bikram sessions, yogis limber ligaments and tone muscles in a heated room, which helps facilitate flexibility and triggers cleansing perspiration to detoxify the body. Experienced instructors patiently coach students through 26 sinuous asana poses, including spine-stretching forward bends and seated poses performed alongside two pranayama exercises to invigorate breathing and intimidate all birthday candles within a 200-mile radius. Bikram Yoga San Antonio allows first-time students to borrow bath towels and yoga mats on the house, though subsequent rentals incur a small fee. To ensure safe perspiration, participants stay amply hydrated by sipping from personal water bottles brought from home, invaluable for getting into the proper spirit for Cactus pose.
Though Bikram Yoga San Antonio sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The Union's instructors like to remind their students that for every expert yogi, there was a first class. They hold on to this humble philosophy at three studios, where high temperatures help both old hands and newcomers stay limber. The staff cautions their students against aiming for perfection during the 60 and 90-minute courses; instead maintaining that, by simply trying each of the 26 postures and two breathing exercises, bodies and minds achieve the maximum benefit.
To highlight the value of consistent practice, they encourage visitors to take the 60-day challenge, which charges students to attend one yoga or Crossfit class every day for 60 days. Beginners are welcome and everyone is challenged based on their ability and fitness level. Those who accomplish this task are immortalized by writing their name on the Challenge Wall, which doubles as the police force's superhero directory. The studios also honor individuals in their class community with the yogi of the month feature, a series of interviews with students about their Bikram yoga practice.
