I practiced Bikram regularly for 2 1/2 years, 1 1/2 of those years was at the Hall Street studio before delivering my son. The instructors are friendly and they care about helping the students feel better and have a better yoga practice.

Incredible workout!\r
Life as a stay at home mom can be stressful and unpredictable. It can be hard to make time for yourself, much less get a workout in. This is where Bikram Yoga comes to the rescue!\r
There are lots of classes starting

I've been taking classes here off and on for about the last year but have recently made it a part of my regular routine. I love it! I was hooked after my first class. Some of the thing I love about this studio: 1. Great instructors.

I was skeptical to try Yoga at first, especially being a 29 year old man. I thought of Yoga as something for Women. My girlfriend and I decided to give it a shot. The very first class was a real eye opener! Bikram's Yoga is an incredible

I have been going ot Hall Street Bikram for 2 years. Overall, i like it a lot - great instructors, and lots of classes. 2 negatives i can think of: 1) when it is cold outside, the morning classes are often "cold" (maybe 80-90 degrees),

I took two yoga classes here and was satisfied with them but not astounded like I thought I would be. I heard they were the best from multiple people but found them to be average and a bit over priced.

I've been a Bikram Yogi for over 10 years. Contrary to a lot of people's notions of what Yoga is about, this is a demanding and surprisingly aerobic form of exercise. The Hall Street studio is one of four Portland studios offering the full on Bikram method. The big studio is pleasant and the Bikram-trained teachers are smart, steeped in the knowledge of anatomy and the science of exercise. Most are quite compassionate and willing to give individual attention to students. Twenty years ago, an orthopedic surgeon told me i would have to have hip replacements in 20 years. There is no doubt in my mind that my yoga practice has made that surgery unnecessary.

There is nothing quite like doing yoga in a warm room. You don't feel all cold and creaky, allowing you to relax into the poses. But not only does the heat help you to loosen up for the yoga stretches, but its great for detoxing!!! With all the toxins we have in and around us, bikrams yoga is the perfect thing to counteract it! All the yoga poses are designed to compress and then open every muscle, joint and organ in your body. This helps to flush toxins from the tissue...but then it has to get out. well, add some heat and you are sweating up a storm! and sweating is a great way to detox. sweating regularly is known to be great for the body and it beautifies the skin! Then you want to drink tons of water afterward which is also excellent for your body! The first few times might take a little getting used too, you might feel light headed or feel like its hard to breathe. During my first couple classes I took lots of breaks and would sit or lay down often. but soon your body adapts and you find you are able to do more and more! so don't be discouraged if it is your first few times. Please, just try it for a month. they have a great 30 days for 29$ intro which is a ridiculously awesome deal. if you aren't convinced after a month, then fine. but give it at least that. a lot of people just try it once and say, forget it, it's too hard or hot. but stick with it and it will take you further than any other yoga class would. I have seen 80 year old grandmothers and grandfathers in class. if they can do it, so can you! I reccomend bikrams hot yoga to my massage clients as a great way to stay healthy. I can't say more about how much greater hot yoga is than anything else. there is NO COMPARISON! love it!

Pros: excellent for detoxification & increasing flexibility

Cons: heat takes a lil getting used to, but WORTH it!!

I've been coming to Bikram Hall Street since 2005. I had never tried any type of yoga before, so I had no expectations. My friend who brought me said it was going to be hot. Well, I made it through the 90 minutes without leaving the room, sitting down, or passing out. Then I was completely hooked.

I originally tried Bikram yoga to help with my disabling tennis elbow. I almost had to quit playing tennis, even after many months of physical therapy. After just a few short months of Bikram yoga, my elbow was virtually pain free.

It also gives me a sense of calm after a stressful day with my 2 kids. Bikram yoga has taught me how to breathe and feel better about myself, inside and out. My friends tell me I look good, and ask me if I have lost weight. Maybe only a few pounds, but my body is much more toned than it was 4 years ago. It really has been worth it!

I was on a path to early grave or at minimum cranky hurting old lady. In a honest effort to reverse this and take charge of my health and happiness, I have committed to 60 consecutive days of Bikram Yoga at the Hall Street studio. 10 days in and I am already a believer. As a former college swimmer and all around athlete, I've been suffering from chronic ankle injury for 15+ years. I finally succombed to ankle fusion 2 years ago. My ankle is now solid, but the rest of my body is so off balance. Without any action on my part, things are just getting worse. The good leg is overstimulated, weak yet extremely tight. The bad leg is just weak.

I encourage those of you who are scared your injuries are too severe for yoga to try it before you decide. And, own your own experience. Show up with time to introduce yourself to the instructor, tell them about your injuries and then in class focus only on doing your best listening intently and following instructions exactly. The reason the instructors may sound so insistent is it's crucial to do the poses with correct form even if you can't move more than an inch. They are not criticizing they are helping. Just listen to your own body and try as hard as you can within your own limits. I personally find the instructors at Hall Street kind and reassuring. It's a practice that requires discipline and through that personal transformation occurs. If you are spending thoughts on how you like or dislike your instructor in class you might consider focusing instead on your own breathing and posture. Listen to the instruction and push away all other negative thoughts/emotions.

Pros: Transformative, restoring, energizing

Cons: None

...when talking about this Yoga, or people would think I'm insane.

This is the real deal though! It's transforming, it's meditative, it's a hardcore aerobic workout (heart rate going crazy!!). As someone who runs in Hood 2 Coast, jumps at any chance for a pickup game of basketball, played football in yesteryear - I have to say Bikram Yoga is by far the greatest thing I've ever done for myself.

It's challenging, but the teacher work you up and challenge you to challenge yourself. It has dramatically improved my discipline in life, focus at work and (here's where I start sounding crazy) the way I think!

I've tried Yoga at my old gym, and pilates too, both of which were "good" but Bikrams is on a whole different level. I'm surprised at how it continues to change me even though I've been goign for almost 8 months steady!

Pros: Feeling than I thought imagineable

Cons: Zero!

I had never taken yoga classes before coming to Hall Street Bikram's Yoga College of India. But they have a $29 unlimited one month offer for beginners.
After 2 classes I was hooked. We do the same 26 postures each time and it takes 1 1/2 hours. The instructors talk us through every step. I never believed that standing, lieing & kneeling in one place could be so aerobic until I started checking my heart rate after class. It was right up there with running 5 miles. The teachers all push, prod, encourage and show by example. They are right there with you but never intrusive. I love it.
Along with feeling healthy and liking myself this has cured my psoriasis.
People come early and hang around after to chat with friends they haven't seen since yesterday. There is a mix of members who come once a week and people who are here every day.
And there is free parking.

I am visiting from northern California, and decided to try a local hot yoga class during my visit here. I have been practicing yoga for many years, (primarly hot yoga) and felt that I should comment on my experience at Bikhram School of India--Hall Street Yoga.

This is a very traditional form of Bikhram yoga. Although my class was advertised as a beginners class, it is really not a good class for someone who's not practiced yoga before. I took only one class here with one instructor, but it was my experience that it was very militant. You must have permission from the instructor to get a drink of water or to take a break. (This may be fine if you are an advanced practioner).

I am particularly concerned if you have bad knees. The instructor requires you to lock your knees, which may cause injury. All in all, if you aren't very physically active and healthy this could be an overly challenging class.

Bikram yoga is done in 105 degrees temperature for ninety minutes. Depending on your physical condition this may be very challenging. Certain instructors are very accomodating and inspire you to try harder and others try to push you into things your body can't do. The introductory special is a great deal so give it a try but go and do the best you can regardles of what the teacher says.

all depends on the instructor. Most of the instructors are good, helpful, encouraging. There is one that likes to call you by name and point out every tiny thing you are doing "wrong", regardless of what your body is telling you. I think i probably had the same person the other reviewer did. So i just don't go to this instructor's class anymore. The good ones did get me hooked on it though.

I love Bikram-style yoga! However my back is not very flexible, something my chiropractor tells me I was born with and 'just is'. Unfortunately with the new management and instructors I've gotten negative comments from two instructors at Hall Street from across the room that I'm not trying hard enough in some postures because I'm not extended to their taste. It's pretty embarrassing to be criticized publicly and any response from me is going to sound defensive. One instructor though came up to me and quietly asked "Do you have issues with your back?" and I gratefully nodded: she observed what was going on, didn't make assumptions and wasn't trying to embarrass me. She told me to keep on doing what I was doing (which was working it hard despite where I was in progress) and left me and my back to our work. Diversity is reality, ya'll! For all the yoga speak at the beginning of the class about honoring your body, some of the'macho' instructors could learn a lot more about respect and what it is to teach.

A great place if you like Yoga and are ready to try 'hot yoga'. ..or do they call it Hatha? Good instructors take the class through poses carefully and clearly (or attend a 'silent' session). Very nice studio -- large, well mirrored. Sometimes crowded. Clean, well equipped, simple shower/dressing rooms. Also have massage available.
