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!
    Courtney
  • 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.
    Amy
  • 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 November Students of the Month, Christa and Riley!

We normally save highlighting a couple for February, but it's 2020 so why not do something different?? They've both been regular students for a few years now, but since the pandemic, they've become almost daily staples and it shows! We are a diverse group of people as highlighted by these two eclectic 20-somethings.They are super smart, and super creative. Add in a regular yoga practice and they will be pioneers in this new post pandemic world. Read more in their own words:
Christa:
"It was a long time before I managed to drag myself to the Bikram Yoga Studio of Catonsville. I’d invite Riley to a play and he’d accept. Then he’d invite me to yoga and I’d respectfully decline, reminding him patiently, yet again, that I have high-temperature intolerance. Besides, I'm the sort of person who walks around with an umbrella on sunny hot days. Each degree is just another ingredient for misery as far as Pale Toes is concerned. Who knew there was an indoor space someone would deliberately heat to over 100 degrees?
Looking back, I see in myself that hesitancy to begin something you secretly suspect will become the kind of demanding ally you actually want around.The kind of meaningful, high-effort habit that lowercase, lazy you is gonna have to die a little to make room for.
The first time I went, I was just so happy it didn’t kill me completely. Then I kept coming, and it kept not killing me. If it were merely unpleasant, I’d have dropped it, but it was so dynamically engaging and challenging. The calm intensity of showing up for every movement and breath in a non-judgmental way brought me back over and over.
Physically, the practice is beneficial for balance, strength, and flexibility. My body tends right-dominant, and I’ve suffered periodic debilitating sciatica following a bicycle accident in my early youth. It seldom rears its head these days. Cognitively it’s been an exercise in patience, acceptance, and focus.
It’s been such a delight to participate in this happening. Incremental enhancements and fluctuations of depth, all relative to the day. Sometimes honing the control of fine movements to such a tuned-in layer that, in the moment, you wouldn’t second guess your own divinity, or anybody else’s. Other times, the goal is just to meet yourself where you're at. So if you just need to hold still and drool, at least you won’t distract anyone behind your pandemic mask!
The teachers bring energy and personality to every class, and each time feels like a new original with their humor, attention, and skill. You can expect to be encouraged, nurtured, and lightly amused whenever you attend a class at the reliably immaculate BYC."
Riley (RoRih DawtCawm):
"Wow! Hard to believe it's been over 3 years since that fateful August day. I was wistfully celebrating turning 27. Torn between treating myself to BBQ or Chinese food for lunch, I tripped over the curb and nearly put my head through the glass front door of Bikram Yoga Catonsville. They herded me into the hot room where I shuffled uncomfortably, fully clothed, wondering if the A/C was broken or what.
Then my whole world got turned upside-down - literally. The sequence seemed perfect, like it was refined by billions of years of insight. It's rigorous and complete, but accessible even for someone who's not very flexible. It's the same every time, but constantly challenging in new ways. I picked up the habit like chocolate cake, and now it's hard to imagine going without. If I come into class stuck on a problem, I usually leave with a new way forward. It's like a secret power.
Before this practice, I had never done a back bend. Let alone a "camel". It turns out these spine activities really work some magic in the old nervous system. I didn't know how good we have it at BYC until I ventured to try other studios during a visit to my family out West. The facility/etiquette/culture here are as good as it gets, and I'm grateful to everyone that works so hard to make this such a cool community!
While I'm Student of the Month, I'll make the most of my reserved mat spot and VIP icemaker access!"
