I love Bikram Yoga..it's a great form of exercise, coming from the girl who didn't like regular yoga. Personally, the heat really helps me focus, which prevents boredom. THis is a great studio to take a Bikram class, I don't recommend taking Bikram classes at a studio that is not deemed as "Bikram's Yoga College of India"

I love Bikram but won't be going here!! When I called to make sure the online schedule was current, and to make sure the class that I wanted was taught in English, I was spoken to in an unbelievably rude and sarcastic way. Apparently he was unaware that other studios do classes in languages other than English, and was shocked to hear the question. I will be going back to the studio in Redondo Beach where everyone is friendly and informative, and I already know the schedule!

The man at the desk was so rude, I left. I really love Bikram Yoga and I used to take classes in Arizona in a great studio in Scottsdale and everyone was so polite and fun...Here, the first contact was so horrible, maybe they have enough business, they did not need me...very sad because I need them recovering from Moersh-Woltman Syndrome, I really needed to work out, just could not handle the stress at the desk. Maybe if he knew I was a famous artist, his mood will have change...

I admired you Los Angelists. I have practiced Bikram yoga in Hong Kong for over two years and loved it much. Bikram visited Hong Kong few months ago. However, two weeks ago Bikram yoga Hong Kong suddenly ?renamed?? as Planet Yoga (hosted by a Master Kamal) overnight. Then there is no more Bikram teacher and no more Bikram postures which are now replaced by unknown and random hot static yoga postures.

I've practiced yoga at over a dozen facilities in the last 6 years and Bikram's location on La Cienega is by far my least preferred. My main complaint is regarding the facility. For the amount of money that they charge you would think that basic maintenance would be preformed to keep the place from looking like an inner-city YMCA. The carpet is covered in stains (and stinks), 50% of the amenities in the locker-room are broken (i.e. lockers, soap dispensers and bathroom stall doors) and the awful fluorescent lights in the yoga room are constantly flickering.

Every class has the exact same format and despite this fact most of the teachers are unbearable. These particulars along with the fact that the people working the front are less than friendly make it a rather unpleasant studio to visit.

Bikram is Hatha yoga performed in a very hot room. It is, in my experience, that fastest way to get in shape and you can feel yourself becoming healthier (I even voluntarily cut down on coffee when I regularly attend)...mainly because it is very difficult to do the yoga poses in 110 degrees. It's forced meditation and therefore bliss not thinking about anything but how far you can take a stretch. I love it but I realize it is not for everyone. Drink lots of water before you go. They tell you this and they mean it. Bikram himself teaches class sometimes and it almost feels like a movie star visiting their restaurant. No yoga epiphanies but fascinating all the same.

PROS: the hardest and most rewarding excercise for body and mind
CONS: expensive

I have been practicing Bikram yoga for 2 and half years now, and have never felt better in my life! The heat can be intimidating at first, but once you get used to it, you wouldn't think about doing yoga in a non-heated room. There are several Bikram yoga studios around L.A., but the studio on La Cienega (Headquarter) is the best, because Bikram himself teaches a few classes a week (at least one class a week).

I am a pretty avid yoga fan, so when my friend became a Bikram instructor, I figured I'd give it a whirl. Well...it's definitely not for everyone, let me put it that way. The room is just above 100 degrees; you do the same 26 poses every class without variation (sometimes you do more, but they are still never-changing); most of the people are scantily clad (mostly middle-aged Speedo-ed men) and the sweat smell was nearly enough to asphyxiate you. I know many people who swear by this kind of yoga, so I vowed to give it another try, but give me my power yoga class; its way less stinky.
