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 so you can do it 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 Red Hot Seafood & Poke and The Beauty Store.
It's healthy for you!
We use Prestyl FAR infrared panels. FAR infrared has been found to eliminate heavy metals, poison, and carcinogenic material from our bodies. It increases blood flow and relieves sore muscles. It increases enzyme activity in the digestive tract, boosts metabolism, and heals scars (and this before you even do yoga!).
It's 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.
Our HVAC for the yoga room is a breath of fresh air. Literally! We have a UV light air filter that kills bacteria when circulating the air in and out of the yoga room. We also have an ERV unit that sucks out CO2 and pumps in fresh oxygen without disrupting the temp of the room.

“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 Yogi of the Month, Michelle!
This practice is for someone who has never done any physical activity. It's also for long time practitioners like Michelle! Some of us have been doing this for so long, it's just become some of the fabric of our being. It's like taking vitamins to those of us like Michelle. We aim to do it daily. When we miss a day, we know there's a class to get back to tomorrow. It's just part of what works. We all need these things in our lives. Read how these 90 minutes are a daily time to incorporate mind, body and spiritual health to her..
"How do you show up for yourself? Have you ever had to recover from a place of debilitating pain, injury, surgery or face crippling anxiety or depression? I have. Distinct parts of my life have been filled with overwhelm and regret, where shame and bitterness were all I could see, where grace, kindness and forgiveness for myself and others was lost and forgotten. How do you battle back from such a place and regain peace, clarity, and self respect?
What tools do I use to battle back? Nothing profound. Getting enough sleep and eating what fuels my body to be at its best, drinking enough water, heart to hearts and deep belly laughs with real friends, ice baths and therapy, journaling and prayer. All this helps. There is however one constant that has been my saving grace for over a decade now, a safe harbor from the storm you may say and that has always been a consistent yoga practice and the community I have found while practicing.
This 26 and 2 practice over the years we have come to know and love (or love to hate). A sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises when done twice and practiced in a heated room (105f, 40% humidity) with intention, mindfulness and community helps optimize my mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health so that I can be at my best for myself and others, despite my struggles and limitations.
The first time I showed up for class over a decade ago, I wasn’t convinced it was for me. I couldn’t imagine how hot yoga could fulfill my need for a challenge and yet at the same time bring me peace and exhilaration. By the end of class, I was hooked. I felt truly accomplished and exhilarated ready to learn everything I could about this sequence. At the same time, I felt more centered and grounded and in a state of deep relaxation. So, I went back. And, I went back. I kept going just about every day and this predictable set of postures healed my back pain and my insomnia! (Just ask Kyle, she was one of the reasons I kept on coming back - way back then. An amazing teacher both then and now.) Showing up consistently, I found the heat melting my tight muscles which then allowed me to relax. The heat also worked to cleanse every organ, every system, every cell in my body while resetting my spine and nervous system, calming my mind and boosting my spirits.
I took Christina’s class last night which was amazing! Her calming presence and nurturing cues you have to experience for yourself. Focusing my attention on the teacher’s guiding cues, my mind quieted down and I settled into a moving meditation being present in the moment and reminding myself to embrace challenges as they arise.
