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 June Student of the Month, Shannon!

Shannon has been a diligent student for years. She has a wonderful, consistent practice that shows both in the studio and in her futuristic looking Yoga Dome on Zoom. Few have started yoga as early as she has and it shows in all aspects of her life. Read more about her experience below:
"My Bikram yoga journey began 8 years ago. Exercise has always been my preferred form of therapy, but at that time my normal routine just was not cutting it. I was in my first year of graduate school, needed to find a new job, and my grandmother's health issues were all weighing very heavily on me. A couple of coworkers had taken a few Bikram classes and suggested it as an option to me. I have been a yoga devotee for most of my life and started doing yoga when I was 10 years old, but doing yoga in a hot room sounded like a completely foreign concept and I couldn't help but wonder, why would someone want to do that? A few weeks later, thanks to Groupon I decided to give my first class a try. It was a Saturday morning in August, and I went in with very low expectations. I had a surprisingly good class. It did not feel too hot and I surprised myself by doing all of the postures (not well, but I attempted each one). I think what surprised me the most is that for those 90 minutes I wasn't fixated on school, my job hunt or family illness, it was just about those postures and listening to the instructor. I could take a mental break and afterwards I felt calmer and more able to tackle any obstacles.
That good first class is probably the reason I returned the following week for another. A 1-2 day a week practice turned into 5 days a week, which turned into everyday for several years. Particularly those first few months, my practice was my salvation, it kept me sane, energized and focused. Best of all, everyone at the studio was so friendly. I met my first yoga friend, Gabriela, who introduced me to many other wonderful people, including my yoga bestie, Janet. These are the people who no matter how challenging the class always make me smile and I am so grateful for the love and support I have experienced from this community through some of the most challenging times in my life.
This past year my practice has looked very different. I started a new job and could barely make it to the studio at all, then the pandemic hit and everything shut down. Luckily, yoga continued virtually and I have actually been able to practice more than I otherwise would have, which has certainly been my pandemic silver lining. A year and a half ago I couldn't have envisioned doing Bikram in my bathroom or an inflatable yoga dome, and though neither equates the to physical warmth and energy of the hot room, all yoga is good yoga and I wouldn't trade those zoom experiences, as it kept us all connected.This year I have learned to appreciate the times I can make it to the studio (or my dome) and am trying to accept any physical limitations or challenges, and embrace what I see in the mirror, though giving myself grace is still very much a work in progress.
I have learned so much from the wonderful teachers. I remember being nervous to take Kyle's class for the first time, but it was a blast and she has always pushed me to greater heights in my practice, getting me to try things I did not think I could do. Edward for the constant encouragement, blissful savasanas, and the coolest nickname. Cynthia has shown me you can still have fun and talk about tacos while getting your ass kicked, and to Lynne, for building and fostering this amazing community at BYC, while continually correcting my alignment.
Though I may not always feel it at the beginning of each class, I am grateful for each opportunity to get on my mat. It may not be pretty, it may not be comfortable, but I always find what I need and for that I am thankful."
