Bikram Yoga North Scottsdale

9301 E. Shea Blvd.
Scottsdale, AZ 85260
Area: Scottsdale

As compared to the Bikram Institute on Indian School (also in Scottsdale), this studio is more homey and cozy.  We like the no-fuss, no-frills yoga experience, and Bikram North Scottsdale delivers. Massage is also offered at the studio, a nice perk for weary travelers. You'll find the studio on the southeast corner of 92nd and Shea Streets, in a shopping center with a Chompie's deli and Starbucks. As most Bikram studios are, this one is hard to find in the clutter of the strip-mall; it's tucked in the back corner, so don't give up if you can't locate it! And you'll have no problem finding parking, always nice.

If you are traveling light, the studio has you covered with mat and towel rentals for $2 each and water for purchase at $2. Single visits are $17. There is also a traveler's special. 1 week for $50. Locker rooms feature showers (with soap & shampoo dispensers), and storage for your personal effects. We suggest drinking plenty of water and not eating 3 to 4 hours prior to arriving. New students will want to show up at least fifteen minutes ahead of time.

Check the website for class schedule and more information, but unless there is a holiday, classes are offered: M-Thurs: 5:30a; 9a; Noon; 4:30p; 6:30p. Friday: 5:30a; 9a; Noon; 4:30p. Sat/Sun: 8a; 10a; 3:30p


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.
