Bikram Yoga Birmingham

Bikram Chaudry is famous for starting his classes by saying, “Welcome to Bikram’s Torture Chamber.” And while that may be true for Bikram’s classes, there’s nothing tortuous about a visit to Bikram Yoga Birmingham. Located in the picturesque Vestavia Hills suburb of Birmingham, BYB offers hot yogis a fun, friendly, downright soothing experience.

Studio: A classic Bikram studio, meeting all the specifications to proudly boast the status of Birmingham’s only Bikram-certified yoga studio. The studio space can hold up to about 75 practitioners. Three of the studio’s four walls are mirrored for maximum alignment-checking.

Classes: Nothing but Bikram. Owner Kate Jenkins is a passionate Bikram yogi. Her love for the style is obvious from the moment class begins until the final Savasana.

Flooring: Forbo Flotex vinyl flooring, which feels like carpet to the touch. It’s antimicrobial and doesn’t get slippery during sweaty 90-minute classes.

Amenities: Spacious men’s and women’s locker rooms with multiple showers, cubbies, and space to hang out (or cool off) after a sweaty class. There’s also a patio out back where yogis can enjoy the view   of the beautiful creek that runs behind the studio.

Parking: Lots.

Boutique: Bikram-related books, DVDs, and cds. Also t-shirts and yoga clothes.

Vibration: Clean, simple, hip, and welcoming. It’s obvious that a lot of love and thought went into the construction of this beautiful space. The studio space itself is all business, with mirrors on three sides and a small stage for the instructor to stand on. The rest of the space is bright, yet soothing, and encourages sweaty yogis to stay for a while after class and and enjoy each others’ company.

the yoga circle

 

Experience space and unreal instruction at Birmingham's Yoga Circle.

Making her home in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Birmingham was once known as the ‘Magic City’ because of her unparalleled growth in population and industry.  This is a place full of rich and tragic history, character and wonderful people, and often referred to as the cradle of the American Civil Rights movement.

When you come here looking for yoga, look no farther than The Yoga Circle.  Prepare yourself for a warm space, a place to ‘inspire, love and believe’ … with and in yourself and the Yoga Circle community.  You’ll find Yoga Circle in the Five Points South district of Birmingham, just a few blocks down from the iconic statue of Vulcan.  This community goes full circle, no doubt, from travelers and regulars to beginners and teachers that are all certified and truly inspire.

Massage is on site and on the menu too.  Workshops hosted by studio instructors and visiting Alabama teachers and beyond fill the schedule.  Yoga Circle is a warm community that is truly immersed in the study of this practice that we all love so much.

Studio: Hard-wood floor, mirrors for the music of alignment and focus, and a space for collective breath … this is the place to inhale and exhale in unity and peace.

Classes: Hot, Vinyasa, Meditation, Kundalini, Ashtanga, Meditation.  All classes are open to beginners … come in and find out what it’s all about.  Check your worry at the door, there are modifications for everyone and benefits for the full circle.

Inspired magic at Birmingham's Yoga Circle.

Flooring: Wood

Amenities: Women’s and men’s walk-in showers that are spacious, graceful and so welcome after a hot class.  Additional changing rooms and bathrooms are also on site.  You’ll have everything you need at Yoga Circle.

Parking: Plenty available.

Boutique: Now selling Archipelago candles, Yogitoes and AOL brand clothing.  Also featuring local artist Gabriela Pomplova’s hand-made yoga wear.  Come take a class and find what you need.

Vibration: This is a place that goes beyond simple asana instruction.  Yoga is taught here.  You’ll find yoga philosophy and disciplined schools of yoga that can work for all of us.  The good and blissful vibration at this studio just can’t be explained without taking a class … these people are practicing yoga and they want you to join them.  Yoga Circle is part of the magic of this city indeed.
