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 April Student of the Month, Janet!

     
     
    Janet's been a Bikram Yoga staple around town for many years. She has had a dedicated practice both in the room and on Zoom with us throughout the pandemic. She's an amazing cheerleader for everyone around her, proud dog mama to Mojo and Lionel (who have also done more Zoom classes than most) and continues to be an incredible support to our studio. We are so fortunate to have her as part of our community! Read more about her experience below:
     
    "Where do I start? There’s a million and one things I could say…how do you encapsulate something that has quite literally changed your life into a few paragraphs? I will do my best to keep it brief-ish, but bear with me 😊 
    You know the saying “when you know, you know.”?
    11 years ago I began practicing Bikram yoga. The studio was a small space on the third floor in a building in the city, with carpeted floors that you could smell when you came in on the first floor. Yes. Carpet. Sweat. Eww. New students were quickly identified by the face we made when encountering the full power of that smell upon entering the hot room. 
    But I knew. From the very first moment I took Kyle’s class, and she told me my thumbs were not very flexible, I knew. And I kept coming back.
    My practice quickly grew from one day a week, to three, to daily, to 9 to 10 times a week at one point. I even competed on stage in a yoga competition- TWICE. This girl who does not like to be the center of attention, who has had body and self-esteem issues most of her adult life, got up in a leotard on stage to be judged on the quality of her postures. I don’t regret a second of that time, I learned so much during those years and I met some of the most amazing people, who remain my best friends and I would never have known them if not for yoga. But I remember being in tears that I didn’t get the scores that I had hoped and worked so hard for in that last competition. Rather than feeling empowered by doing something so scary to me, and proud of my accomplishments, I felt broken. The competitive aspect and the constant desire to have the picture-perfect asana had become an obsession and had taken over the true benefits of this practice for me. 
    It was at that point that I realized my relationship with yoga had to change. It was becoming toxic, and I did not want to lose something that had truly enriched my life in so, so many ways. It was not too long after that, that Lynne opened the Catonsville studio. And from the first day I walked through the doors, for that very first class on their opening day, I once again knew. This was my new yoga home. 
    My relationship with yoga has continued to positively evolve and change over the past three years with BYC. The attention to detail of our fearless leaders and their dedication to helping us to improve our practices is second to none. I don’t know how they can see my eyeballs and where I’m looking all the way from the back of the room, but they call me out on it. every time. I’m not sure how they can so successfully balance teaching a room full of students and a zoom screen equally as full and still provide each of us with personal corrections, but they do it. every time. Move your toe an inch to the left, tilt your hip down, tuck your butt ever so slightly, shift your weight back…the subtleties of these seemingly picayune corrections have made all the difference in my practice and healing my body and injuries from the past. 
    Life circumstances do not currently allow for practicing daily like I was pre-COVID. And while I’m looking forward to the day when I’m back to that daily practice, I am grateful for every moment that I get to spend in the studio or over zoom with the beautiful community that Lynne and Kyle have built. 
    Today, I rarely see my toes over my head in standing bow. My thumbs are still stubbornly inflexible. But I’ve finally (11 years later!) learned that the pose is not the goal. Flexibility is not the goal. The number of classes I attend in a week or day, the number of calories I burn…none of these are the goal. Serenity. Balance. Finding comfort and peace in my own skin. That’s the goal. I’m a kinder, stronger person because of this yoga and the amazing people it has brought into my life. Thank you, Lynne and Kyle, for helping me to get to this place and understand that."
