Bikram Yoga is hot, in more ways than one. It’s wildly popular amongst celebrities, with stars like Beyoncé, David Beckham, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Madonna among its notable practitioners. Bikram yoga is practiced in studios heated to 104°F (40°C) and the 90 minute classes consist of 26 postures and breathing exercises. It’s said that the heat of the room allows the body to better release toxins and increases overall physical performance. The heat causes blood vessels to dilate and tissue to expand, improving blood flow and distribution of oxygen throughout the body and creating an overall sense of well-being.
Bikram Yoga NYC opened it’s first location in 1999 and was the first Bikram studio in Manhattan. Broadway performers flocked to the studio for classes as a way to maintain their fitness. Over the past 15 years, Bikram Yoga NYC has expanded to a total of 4 studios throughout Manhattan serving Broadway divas and regular citizens alike.
With Bikram yoga becoming more popular, Bikram Yoga NYC sought out a way to set their studios apart from the competition as well as create a welcoming, friendly, and encouraging atmosphere. Working together with Air Aroma, Bikram Yoga NYC is now diffusing a fresh blend of eucalyptus and mint essential oils to create a stimulating and refreshing feeling for their members.
Eucalyptus oil has respiratory benefits, as it opens up the airways allowing you to breathe deeper and also has antimicrobial properties, making it ideal for fitness environments. Peppermint oil has been found to increase alertness, perfect for focusing in yoga class. The clean and fresh fragrance and our Aroslim systems can be found at all Bikram Yoga NYC’s locations throughout New York.
