  • Bikram’s Beginning Yoga Series is a 90 minute class of twenty six postures and two breathing exercises. We do each posture twice.
  • All classes are 90 minutes, please plan to stay in class the entire time. Please do not walk through class during postures. If you must leave, please do so quietly. This is for your benefit, as well as for the other students in class.
