WHO IS BIKRAM?
Born in Calcutta, India, Bikram Choudhury began learning Hatha Yoga poses at the age of three. At five, he began studying with Bishnu Ghosh (Paramahansa Yogananda’s brother) and is reported to have won the National India Yoga Championship for three consecutive years in his teens.
Bikram created a 26 posture series, which he reports restored his health. The 105 degree Fahrenheit heat in which Bikram yoga is practiced is, according to Choudhury, meant to mimic the climate of India.
WHO ARE WE?
BYK is a community of students and teachers who are passionate about yoga. All of our teachers have been trained and certified by Bikram Choudhury and bring a wealth of experience to the studio.

WHO CAN DO BIKRAM YOGA?
'NEVER TOO LATE, NEVER TOO OLD,
NEVER TOO SICK, NEVER TOO BAD
TO START FROM SCRATCH AGAIN.'
Bikram Yoga was designed for beginners. It is accessible enough for someone who has never done any yoga or exercise before and challenging enough for serious athletes. All of our teachers are trained to be able to teach students of all levels.
