about bikram yoga

Bikram Yoga is a scientific and therapeutic form of hatha yoga done in a heated room. It includes 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises to give you a meditative and challenging experience. This system works every part of your body and is restorative to do on a daily basis. Experience the amazing benefits for yourself today!

The Studio

Conveniently located 10 minutes south of downtown Baltimore and 10 minutes north of BWI airport. We are easy to find with tons of parking. Please be aware our studio is on the second floor with no handicapped access. Our front door is located between Urban BBQ and Radio Shack.

The Heat

Healthy for you
We use Prestyl FAR infrared panels. FAR infrared has been found to elimnate heavy metals, poison, and carcinogenic material from our bodies. It increases blood flow and releives sore muscles. It increases enzyme activity in the digestive tract, boosts metabolism, and heals scars (and this before you even do yoga).

Good for the environment:
When you practice in our studio: you leave a minimal carbon foot print. Our heat uses 50% less energy than a traditional forced air heating system.

  • I have been going to BYC since they opened 2.5 years ago. I have never had a bad experience there. In fact, I always feel great after every class. The teachers are top notch and always give good corrections to my postures without being pushy. The place is always spotless because the staff works hard to keep it that way.
  • I travel quite a bit for work and while I am biased as this is my home studio and the teachers are spectacular, this is THE BEST place to call HOME! We at Bikram Yoga Catonsville have a special family relationship, come join us, you will NOT regret it!
  • I am celebrating my two year anniversary at this yoga studio, though I started practicing Bikram almost 12 years ago. I have also visited many different studios around the country, and two in other countries! This studio is superior in many ways.
  • LOVE LOVE LOVE this studio. Great teachers. So friendly and welcoming. It just feels like home. Super clean and temps are always steady. And the fellow Yogi's are the best. Everyone knows your name. Best studio to start and/or continue your practice.

Meet Our September Student of the Month Daina

Like my father, I’ve been a life-long runner.  Up until the age of 40, running in my view was the physical fitness silver bullet.  I believed it was all I’d ever need to take care of any sleep, mood or weight issues that might crop up.  That was until my oldest daughters became interested in vinyasa yoga and dragged me along into the fold. I practiced vinyasa yoga religiously for several years marveling at how good I felt after practice. Don’t get me wrong, I never gave up running, I just added yoga to the mix.

Then one summer when my oldest daughter was home from college, she decided to take a Bikram class. When she described it to me, I thought she and anyone who practices Bikram had to be nuts. Somehow, she convinced me to come with her to her second class. Like Lynne and Kyle say, “You always remember your first Bikram class”. I do, I really do; all the corrections, the heat, my doubts, I remember them all. I even remember being so wrung out after class that when we stopped at Roots for groceries on the way home, I barely possessed the mental wherewithal to figure out the credit card machine at the register. Post practice required recovery time. A surprising thing happened though; I kept going back for more punishment and recovery time became shorter and shorter. My fitness regimen became a mix of running, vinyasa and Bikram yoga.

When Lynne opened Bikram Yoga Catonsville I was still practicing at a different studio. Catonsville seemed too far a ride just for yoga, but then I ran into Margie at the hairdresser. We talked yoga and Margie had such great things to say about the teachers and the heat panels at Bikram Yoga Catonsville that I decided to try it. Once I started at this studio, I found myself practicing Bikram more than I ever had before.  At some point Kyle suggested to me that I give up running. I still haven’t done that, and I don’t expect to. Running is what gets me up and going in the morning, but Bikram yoga is what keeps me going

Last March when the spread of Covid-19 led to stay-at-home orders I was relieved when Lynne and Kyle rolled out daily Zoom classes. The anxiety, restlessness and cabin fever the pandemic produced were alleviated for at least 90 minutes a day. It was reassuring to have Kyle cracking jokes and correcting postures in real time. Lynne’s commentaries, quips and suggestions of disinfecting techniques were evidence that the world as I knew it had not completely disappeared. Seeing all the Zoomers (who Kyle now calls “home schoolers”) in their improvised home studios offered a synergy and connectedness of which the pandemic had robbed us. It was a saving grace. Now at the age of 54 (almost 55) my advice to you is—if life offers you a saving grace, embrace it.

I’ve gone on at length, but I have just one more thing to share. This summer I became a grandmother for the first time. I haven’t returned to in-studio classes because I’ve been traveling back and forth between Maryland and South Carolina to see my grandson. I’m looking forward to getting back to in-studio classes sometime soon. I miss those heat panels, not to mention all of you!
