This is an excellent studio. I began about a year ago at age 49 because I knew I needed to do something to be healthier. Bikram Yoga does the trick for me. I've never had a rude teacher. They do correct you but that keeps you from injuring yourself and helps you get the proper form. I also appreciate that they start on time( one should arrive in time to put their things away and be ready to go at class time, not walk in the door at class time). Just know, this is not for sissies. You are hot and sweaty(drenched not glistening), your heart is pumping and your muscles are screaming but you walk away feeling awesome. It's much easier to eat healthy on the days I attend and I have no desire for some of the junk food I used to love a year ago. I can't imagine not going to BYM.

I first try the intro week which was 20 dollar, my first class went horrible the instructor was extremely rude she keep calling me out and making embarrassing comment. I feel horrible when I leave. But I still want to get my money worth so decided to give it another shot. The next time I went to class. I got turn away. The class begins at 4.30 pm and I arrive at the door at exactly 4.29pm the door was lock so I k nock on door and the instructor open the door and told me the class already begins and I will have to come back another day. So I walk to the car and as I walk to the car I saw another lady walk to the door and the instructor open the door for her and kindly let her in!!!! I feel so discriminated against. Just because I was new they treat me horrible.

I have been a member of Bikram Yoga Memphis for over a year. I never liked yoga before because I could not stand the chanting and fanatical people. I have been to all the yoga studios an memphis and they all fit that annoying quality. Then one day I was complaining to my friends about all my issues and how none of the studios in Memphis are normal with cool people and that is when they recommended Bikram Yoga Memphis.

What and awesome experience from the moment I walked in they had everything covered. At first I thought it was strict but after doing the intense 90 min meditation I completly understand why. They are SAFETY first and I LOVE that! ( I felt so safe I even brought my kids 16 and 18 the next time)

This is an awesome workout and meditation. For 90 mins all I could focus on was me and I loved it. They did everything else. I didnt even have to think. My back pain has decreased immensely and the heat helped me touch my toes and do a safe backward bend!.

The instructors and both owners are awesome and are very passionate and encouraging.

I don't understand the other reviews. I have been to studios all over the US now and nothing compares to this particular studio. It is super clean, they change their carpet regularly and are super cool!

I can now see why O magazine (yes, Oprah magazine) did a recent feature on their studio. Dr. Oz even contributed. These guys are kick ass! Check out the article in the January 2010 issue and a follow up in the February 2010 issue!

Come Check them out and tell them I recommended you! (

Pros: Clean, Awesome instructors, Safe, In Oprah Magazine

Cons: NONE

Although the script that the teachers use is always the same, peoples bodies are not. If my thighs are huge, I cannot bring my toes and heels together.If I have tight shoulders, I cannot bring my palms together all the way to the wrists. Look beyond the script, look at the individual.

Pros: Only Bikram Studio in town

Cons: Teachers cant see beyond the script

I am really shocked to read the negative reviews for Bikram Yoga here in Memphis. Here's why - the teachers are all fantastic. The owner doesn't treat anyone like a 1st grader... she is actually really funny and down to earth! All I can think is that these two women below are just jealous... many of the teachers at this studio are very good and very beautiful too. The place was very very clean and I learned so much about yoga, about myself and I just loved it. I'm a Bikram Yoga convert now and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. So, if you are thinking about it, just go and don't let the haters dissuade you from checking this place out for yourself. You won't regret it.

I have lived in Memphis most of my life and like many women, found my self looking for a way to get healthy, not only physically, but mentally too. But my time is limited. I had heard about Bikram Yoga when I was in NY on business, and searched the web to find out we have our own school here in Memphis! I gave it a try and though it was quite difficult (to say the least!), I left feeling so alive! I have since become a regular Bikram practitioner - have reduced my cholesterol, lowered my b.p., and no longer have chronic back pain!!! I have taken many classes all over the US - Los Angeles, Long Beach, New York City, Chicago, St. Louis, Arizona, New Mexico - and I have to say, we here in Memphis are the luckiest people on earth! This school is outstanding, extremely clean, efficient, strong and the teachers and staff are down to earth and awesome.

Those of you reading this review - my advice is to try it for yourself. Don't let someone else's negative sour-puss attitude sway you. If you really want to get in shape, just like me, you will LOVE this school!

Pros: Well Educated Teachers, Certified School, Clean

Cons: None!

This studio rocks! Everyone that goes there is serious, focused and determined. All of the teachers are awesome and cool but they expect you to work hard in class!

I would guess from the comments below that those people dont really do Bikram and probably go to a knock off -take it easy place..Maybe Hot Yoga studio in Nashville...

Just remember if it says Bikram Yoga on the signs it is for real...

Every time I go to Memphis I go to this studio it rocks!

Pros: Best Teachers in Town and Use Dialogue - Allow you to focus

Cons: the air conditioning doesnt work and its hot!

I cannot agree with the reviews more. The owner taught my class and was out to humiliate and criticize me for the entire hour and a half because I was from another city. I have never been treated so rudely - and actually paid for this demeaning experience.

I haven't felt so scolded since first grade. They spend the time that you have paid for to gripe! I love Bikram and I look for a studio in whatever city that I travel to, but this was unbelievable. The poses of course were the same but the militant style of the instructors was not what I'm used to. The studio is unattractive and smells like mildew. I usually look forward to "savasana" but this evidently is there final time to scold everyone or to advertise. Most people just got up and left. What a shame.

I have been to yoga studios all over the country, and this place is one of the worst. Im used to "Bikram" studios and I appreciate the differences, but this place is special. The teacher that I had was rude and nasty. All she did was preach about negative things and she sounded like an auctioneer. The place smelled really bad and everyone had a glum look on their face. Places like this give Mr. Bikram a bad name.
