Inside a steamy studio, the experienced yogis at Bikram Yoga Westbank spend 90 minutes leading students of all skill levels through a series of 26 poses developed by Bikram Choudhury. Bikram brought his system from India to the U.S. at the request of the American Medical Association. Since then, he founded the Yoga College of India and has taught both actors and athletes. During each class, poses massage internal organs, stimulate nervous systems, and release deficient enzymes and hormones—a process that brings balance to the body, increases flexibility, and enables the average person to sleep inside a sock drawer.
In Classic Yoga mythology, the Tandava is "the dance of life." It's a fitting namesake for Tandava Yoga. While yoga isn't mythical, it's as rooted in age-old traditions as many myths; while yoga isn't dance, it's as flowing and expressive as many dances—at least the way it's practiced in the studio's classes.
The eclectic mix of classes ranges from gentle yoga and meditation sessions to a core-strengthening workout infused with cardio. Regardless of the specific class, though, the instructors hew to a holistic philosophy, one that encourages conscious breathing, mindfulness, and feeling present.
It isn't just the instructors at Karma Yoga + Fitness who help students connect with their bodies: the studio space is also vital. Their state-of-the-art Zebra flooring makes the whole studio like a giant yoga mat, maximizing comfort on the knees and other body parts, making difficult postures safer, and allowing students to practice without using their own yoga mat. Another important amenity is the infrared heat—it penetrates deep into muscles to warm students from the inside. The high-end studio also provides full change rooms with four showers each, and even has its own massage room with a qualified RMT.
