  • If you have special considerations, please tell the teacher before class, but have an open mind to try the Bikram way.
  • Review our Yoga Etiquette Page.

  • Do not start Bikram Yoga while pregnant. But do talk to us. We can give you some helpful info and postures you can do!

What to expect after class:

  • You might feel very tired after your first few classes. This is normal.
  • You might feel very energetic. This is normal too; yoga fills you up with energy!
  • You might feel sore or stiff the next day. Just come back to class as soon as possible allow your body to open up!
  • You might feel dizzy, nauseous, or have a headache. This is usually due to lack of proper hydration. Drink lots of water and avoid alcohol and caffeine. Also, be sure to breathe throughout class—never hold your breath during a posture.
