Traditional Yoga - like Bikram Hot Yoga – reveals to us our human condition. Like most truths this can be bitter. That being said, the best thing about the truth is that it gives us a starting point! As Bikram says:

It's never too late, it's never too bad, and you're never too old or too sick to start from scratch once again.

It’s true, as a newbie, Bikram Hot Yoga can be challenging. You will feel, a lot, during your first classes (actually all your classes), and of course as a newbie you won’t know what to do, how to do it, the yoga etiquette, anything. Still none of this is a good enough reason not to do Bikram Hot Yoga. Any excuse you may come up with may also be the #1 reason you NEED to be doing this Yoga!

The list of benefits that come from regularly practicing Bikram Hot Yoga are sometimes hard to believe because there are so many! But here are a few general, guaranteed ones

  •       Improved Flexibility
  •       Weight Optimization (different than weight loss)
  •       Increased Strength
  •       Relief of chronic physical stress & pain
  •       Better mental clarity & focus
  •       Give you the grand studio tour
  •       Explain the basics of yoga therapy
  •       Talk about the best ways to prepare for a Bikram Hot Yoga class
  •       Cover the best strategy to get the most out of your first times in the Hot room
  •       Trouble shoot the most common postural issues for newbies
  •       Answer any question you may have
  •       Set you up for continued success

As a long time Yoga teacher I always strive to help my new students to get through their first trials because I know without a doubt that EVERYBODY (YOU!) can tremendously benefit from a Bikram Hot Yoga practice. A huge tool for both you the newbie and me the teacher is Bikram Yoga Red Deer’s

Bikram Basics Sessions

The Bikram Basics session is specially designed for Hot Yoga newbies as a boon to help set you on your way to success as a regular Hot Yoga practitioner. It has been launched specifically for those of us (like I once was) who are nervous, even scared, of getting in the Hot Yoga room. I know, and have felt, the benefits, and I want you to as well.

Bikram Basics run every Saturday at 12pm for 90 minutes. (May-August: Basics runs every OTHER Saturday.) Only Hot Yoga newbies are allowed access – experienced practitioners will not be allowed admittance.

During a Bikram Basics session we:

If you follow my instruction and do my yoga postures Sequence to the best of your ability, you will live a better, healthier and more peaceful life. - Bikram

 

Do you know a Yoga Virgin, Fraidy Cat, or a Nervous Nelly? Bring 'em on down to our brand new Bikram Basics session Saturdays 12:00-1:30pm starting in September!

We'll spend 30 minutes outside the hot room going over everything Newbies need to to know about the studio and the Bikram Hot Yoga practice at a slower pace than usual. Then we'll spend 60 minutes in the hot room to try some postures at a LOWER INTENSITY. We'll really slow things down and break down the basics step-by-step so Newbies who may need a little bit of extra attention are set up for success in the regular Bikram Yoga classes. We end with refreshments and the opportunity to ask questions and swap war stories with fellow Newbies.

Bikram Basics is for NEWBIES and INTRO STUDENTS only! Fill out the New Student Registration and Sign up for Bikram Basics NOW!

Investment: Introductory Special pass (currently 1 Month Unlimited for $39)
 Students are welcome to attend as many of the Bikram Basics sessions as they like, as long as they are on the Intro Special.

*Bikram Basics will run every OTHER Saturday May-August
