About Us

Bikram Yoga Leeds is the first dedicated hot yoga studio in Leeds, and the first Bikram studio in Yorkshire. We offer classes throughout the day, seven days a week. Our heated yoga room utilizes state-of-the-art technology and building materials, to create an environment and temperature that is ideal for the practice of hot yoga.

Bikram Yoga

Bikram yoga is a series of 26 hatha yoga postures, performed in 40°c heat, suitable for new and advanced practitioners alike. It was developed by Bikram Choudhury, who is the founder of the worldwide Bikram Yoga College of India™.

Bikram Yoga is an intense and challenging yet gentle form of exercise, suitable for all ages and all levels of ability. Bikram’s Beginning Yoga Class consists of a set series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises, performed in a room heated to 40 degrees Celsius. The heat allows the muscles and ligaments to relax, and will help you attain a deeper stretch and a more effective full-body workout.

The Studio

Our yoga room has been designed in collaboration with experts from the US and Scandinavia to achieve a state-of-the-art hot yoga environment. Drawing upon the Scandivanian experience of creating well insulated spaces in a hostile climate, the walls, floor and ceiling have all been insulated, to create a 'hot box' that will maintain a warm temperature, even in between classes.

The heating system has been carefully constructed to create a constant and even temperature of 40c, with a humidity level of 40%. The exchange of fresh air is carefully monitored throughout every class with the help of a CO2 meter, making sure that there is plenty of fresh, oxygenated air in the room at every given moment.

The flooring of our yoga room is slip-safe and has sound reducing acoustic properties. It is ergonomically designed for underfoot comfort and anti-fatigue benefits. The flooring material contains antimicrobial agents, giving it antibacterial as well as antifungal properties. And most importantly, all floors are cleaned in between every class.

"Your true duty lies in the struggle for what is right, that is your Karma Yoga."

Keeping It Green

At Bikram Yoga Leeds we are committed to environmental sustainability and ethically sourced products. This is reflected everything we do, from our choice of building materials, to the cleaning products we use, to the products we sell in our retail section.

We do not sell bottled water as we do not like to add to the usage of disposable plastic packaging. Instead we provide a bottle filling station where you can fill your own bottle with cold, fresh, filtered water. We provide paraben-free, eco friendly shower gel in our showers and we sell delicious locally brewed Kombucha, that has only travelled the short distance from Hebden Bridge. And we love it when you walk or cycle to the studio. In short, we do our best to keep the planet green, clean and healthy.
