We are fans of the studios operated by Hot Bikram London because of their close attention to detail in design. The London Bridge studio is welcoming and staff try to please. It does get crowded so keep this in mind. The carpeted studio holds over 80. There are 3 pillars, but they don't really obstruct the view. There are showers and lockers, but again it can be chaotic with the crowds.
DIRECTIONS/DETAILS The studio is located a mere 2 minutes from the London Bridge station in the basement of a warehouse building. Don't fret that you have to go "down" to get to the studio. It's a pretty nice space.
A single class is 16.5 pounds, mat and towel rentals are 2 pounds each and a variety of regular and flavored waters are available for around 2-4pounds.
Call the studio of check the website for more detailed class information. Classes start as early as 6:30a and run as late as 9p!
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. ** Note they don't call it "sweaty stinky yoga" without reason. Often smaller studios will have a very distinct fragrance. Don't fret and just do the yoga.
