The second studio to enter Amsterdam, the "de Pijp" location offers an additional opportunity for yoga pursuits. The practice room features windows overlooking the canal, and an updated heating system efficiently distributes heat throughout the room. Changing rooms feature one shower stall each and plenty of storage space for your belongings. The studio is only 1.5 miles from most of our featured hotels, located on the canal between Brouwersgracht and Haarlemmerdijk. Take any tram line to Central Station and walk about 1.5 blocks south.
A single class is 20 euro and includes 2 towels, mat rentals are 2 euro, and bottled water is available for 2 euro.
Call the studio for class schedule and more information, but unless there is a holiday, there are 3-4 classes offered each day with the earliest beginning at 6:30a and the latest at 8p.
ABOUT BIKRAM YOGA
Bikram Yoga welcomes beginners. This 90 minute class consists of 26 beginning postures and is conducted in a hot room (approx. 110 degrees) with, hopefully, high humidity. But don't be fooled into thinking beginning means easy - it doesn't! Iron men and couch potatoes, alike, have found themselves floored in "dead man's pose" just minutes into this challenging workout. You don't have to be strong or flexible or in excellent shape to do this yoga - you simply have to be willing. What we also really like about Bikram's is that every studio teaches the same sequence of postures so you always know you're going to get a full-body workout, a great benefit for travelers.
