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!
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.
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 March Student of the Month, Aphaia!
We love the diversity of our studio, and that also includes what you might think of a typical yoga girl when you look at Aphaia. But like everyone, she has her own unique story. And like many others, she has a similar story of not thinking this class is for her after trying it once. There is a unification in what we all experience in those 90 minutes. Underneath all the layers of diversity that come to the studio, our common humanness connects us. This is one place where, from the outside you might see differences or some religious routine, but stick around, and you see the unity of humanity, diversity of experience and creativity of each individual class in this amazing system.
"I took a Bikram class for the first time on a very cold day while I lived in Burlington, Vermont in 2014. It wasn't for me at the time, and I went on with life. When I moved to Catonsville in July of 2020, I was looking for a local studio to jump into and that's where I found Bikram Yoga Catonsville. I took one class in the summer of 2021, but didn't return until January 2022. Since then, I have been hooked on the practice, its challenges, and the sense of peace and reset I feel each time I walk out the door. I would be remiss not to mention I am a Kyle groupie, her teaching style and presence are a big part of what keeps me coming back.
Initially, Bikram felt like a way of returning to a regular yoga practice while challenging myself physically in a whole new way. Now, it is all that and more- it is a way of returning to my authentic self. Kyle once described the final breathing exercise as a "skull cleanser." I wrote that down the next day because it captured the feeling I had been experiencing. Every time I finish a Bikram class I feel cleansed in one way or another- there is no other practice I've done that gives me that feeling of freedom. I've practiced vinyasa styles of yoga since I was in high school, but I've found a deep sense of connection to Bikram.
I feel very grateful to have Bikram as a foundational part of my health and well-being. During my years in Vermont I was having a lot of fun, sometimes too much fun, and it’s really thanks to coming home to Maryland and finding this studio that I’ve begun to find a real balance in my life. The work continues in this area and all others. But I know I can show up better for myself and for others in my life thanks to this practice.
I remember during my first class my goal like many others was simply to stay in the room. I recall Kyle instructing me personally throughout the class to adjust my form- that this was not like other forms of yoga. It was refreshing and puzzling all at once to reconsider my abilities and just be present. Like others, I value the need to be present in the practice each and every time a healing practice in itself. The practice asks us to leave behind the inner chatter and be there in the room, to do so with ease, and to treat each practice as its own. You may not feel as flexible or as strong as you did a day or week prior but focus on the now. That's the lesson I feel grateful to relearn and practice every time I go to class.
I cherish this studio and community and feel blessed to be a part of it. Thank you Lynne, Kyle, and all the teachers who show up for us everyday."
