As long-time practitioners who have studied directly under Bikram, we understand that Bikram Yoga represents more than a means to achieve flexibility or get lean and toned - those things definitely come. The hot Bikram Yoga room is where you will quickly find your initial limits, then learn to exceed them.
From the day we took our first class, we have been in love with the power of the yoga, its benefits, its beauty, the challenge and the feeling of accomplishment and empowerment it provides to the practitioner. Having completed our comprehensive teacher training course in 2003, we were hoping to eventually open our own studio, which would provide a state-of-the art, comfortable place to which people would want to come again and again to develop their practice and surpass their own expectations.
Yoga means "union" in Sanskrit, and this studio has been designed to bring harmony to your practise and provide an invigorating experience for your body and mind. To us, "union" also means utmost consideration for the environment in everything we do.
We are excited to be able to offer something so enjoyable, healthy and fulfilling to the Canary Wharf community we live in.
As far as Bickram studios go this one is rather good. The changing areas and WC’s are spacious and clean. They are a little on the cold side however this is nice after the class. If you go expecting a high street gym studio then you will be disappointed however if you are familiar with the standard of bickram studios in London you will be pleased. The studio is a good size and as I attended the women’s only class on Sunday and there were only 7 people in the class there was plenty of room. The air in the studio is regular and it is not too hot.
It is a little difficult to locate the studio from the outside. But after walking around twice I found out that there is a bell on the main front door which lets you in. As soon as you enter you know you are in the right place as the smell of sweat and shoes hits you
A negative is that you are charged £1 for a mat, this is a bit cheeky when you have paid for the class.
I will definitely go again !
