has been Postponed, Cancelled for now.
We will be issuing full refunds for any tickets bought.
Bikram has begun teaching a Class along with his Lectures,
many people have been asking about that, and we didn’t have that,
so we’d like to bring him back later when he can teach a class here as well.
Certainly we’ll let you know when it’s rescheduled.
We have replaced all of our lighting in the Yoga Classroom
to Full Spectrum color temperature bulbs,
with high 85 color rendition index (colors appear more true).
It’s a more white, clearer light that a lot of research has suggested
is easier on the eyes and nervous system,
allows you to see yourself in the mirror more clearly
and with more definition,
enhances calmness and relaxation as you stretch !!
It may or may not take a couple of classes to get used to
but you’ll love it when you do!!
Like our consistent, controlled heating, humidification, and ventillation systems,
our antimcrobial, ultralok-backing carpet,
our air purification and natural carpet cleaning and steriliziation systems,
we always work to keep it all simple, clean, healthy, and hygienic,
to go with the safest, most scientifically/medically based system
of health maintenance — Bikram’s Beginning Yoga Class,
offered here uncompromised, undiluted, original, authentic,
and taught by the most experienced and qualified teachers in San Diego….

About Our Yoga School
The first, largest, original, and Authentic Bikram Yoga school in San Diego (established in 1998), we offer Bikram’s Beginning Hatha Yoga Class with a full schedule of classes daily. The Class is for beginners through advanced. We encourage beginners to come to this class (even if you’ve never done Yoga or any exercise at all).
We have a beautiful 7,000 sq. ft. facility with large Change Rooms (showers, lockers, etc.), a steam room, and a large Classroom with state of the art controlled heat, humidification, and air purification. We provide 2 complimentary towels to each person, and a yoga mat for first time or drop-ins.
Bikram’s Beginning Hatha Yoga Class is a comprehensive 90-minute class consisting of a series of 26 Asanas (postures) and 2 breathing exercises, developed by Yogiraj Bikram Choudhury in the 1960’s, brought to the USA by Bikram in 1973, and taught and practiced around the world, more and more, ever since. Each posture is done twice with a Savasana (rest pose) between each, holding to the 3 primary principles of Hatha Yoga as explained in the introduction to Bikram’s book. (Click here for more about Bikram’s Beginning Yoga Class).
The class is practiced in a heated room, to promote cellular metabolism, detoxification, and suppleness of the muscular system, providing a greater level of safety when doing the poses. It is a beginning class, anybody can do it — any age, size, shape, condition, background, problem. It’s accessible and non-exclusive. We do only beginning Yoga postures — nothing that can hurt or injure you. The postures are held still at maximum effort, not continuous movement, again a primary principle of Hatha Yoga (Asanas). Although the first emphasis is on the correctness and safety of the postures, the Class is very challenging and you will have to make demands of yourself. It requires tremendous concentration, careful listening to the teacher’s dialogue (precise instructions), patience, determination, trust, and discipline. As these are required of you, they also develop within you.
The Therapeutic, Curative, Preventive, and overall Health Benefits of Bikram’s system of Yoga are legendary. Since Bikram’s 3 year Research Project with Doctors at the Tokyo University Medical School (Japan, 1970-73), studying the effects of Yoga, countless people have practiced Bikram’s Yoga to overcome chronic problems of all kinds. (Please click here for Testimonials) It takes practice, consistency, and a determination not to give up and to “try the right way,” to gain the full life-enchancing effects of the Yoga practice. With Bikram’s Yoga, you develop the foundation for anything you want to achieve and maintain in life — athletically, professionally, physically, mentally, intellectually, emotionally, spiritually.
At Bikram’s Yoga College of India, San Diego, as at all the Schools that teach Bikram’s with the integrity and consistency that Bikram insists his teachers hold to, you will discover the “Key to the Kingdom of Health.” You will be encouraged to challenge yourself to improve, make better, and maintain your health, your spine, and your life. Bikram’s guru, Bishnu Ghosh, said “Never too late, never too old, never too bad” and Bikram added “never too sick…to start from the scratch once again.” Please visit Bikram’s website for more about Bikram and his Yoga system: www.bikramyoga.com.
NEW!!!! Bikram Certified Teachers: Our policy has always been to allow any actively Certified and Re-certified Bikram’s Teacher to be able to take classes for free at our school. Now, with the ever increasing number of people who have gone through Bikram’s Teacher Training Program, and the large number of Bikram teachers who come to practice at our school, beginning January 1, 2013, we will be charging $5 per class, or $50 monthly unlimited for active Bikram Certified Teachers. To get this rate, we are requiring proof of valid and updated Certification. To practice for that rate at our school, we ask that you make a wallet-sized reduction copy of your most recent (within the last 3 years) Bikram Yoga Teaching Certification (or Re-Certification), and show it with a valid picture ID at our reception desk when you come for a Yoga Class at our school, otherwise you will be asked to pay the regular drop-in fee. A scanned copy on iPhone or other device will also work.
