This is a "pure" Bikram studio and it's located a mere 3.5 miles from our featured hotels. A welcoming atmosphere from the instructor and students alike makes for a truly enjoyable yoga experience. But the studio is very small. One shower is installed and another is in the works (2013).

A drop-in is $15. Towels and Mats are available for rent at $1/each. A selection of regular waters, smart water and coconut water, vitamin water and Gatorade are for sale. Always check or call to ensure class times:

ABOUT BIKRAM YOGA
Bikram Yoga welcomes beginners. This 90 minute class consists of 26 beginning postures and is conducted in a hot room (approx. 110 degrees) with, hopefully, high humidity. But don't be fooled into thinking beginning means easy - it doesn't! Iron men and couch potatoes, alike, have found themselves floored in "dead man's pose" just minutes into this challenging workout. You don't have to be strong or flexible or in excellent shape to do this yoga - you simply have to be willing. What we also really like about Bikram's is that every studio teaches the same sequence of postures so you always know you're going to get a full-body workout, a great benefit for travelers.

** Note they don't call it "sweaty stinky yoga" without reason. Often smaller studios will have a very distinct fragrance. Don't fret and just do the yoga.
