When should I NOT attend yoga class?

We believe that Bikram Yoga strengthens your immune system. However, if you are sick or have a cold, flu-like symptoms, or fever, please stay home. Students with fever are not permitted in the hot room. Students with open wounds are not permitted in the hot room.

What if I’m late for class?

Each class begins promptly. Our studio has a 5-minute cut off policy. Students arriving more than 5 minutes after class begins will not be permitted into the yoga room.

What should I eat and/or drink before, during, and after class?

Come to class on an empty stomach – but don’t starve yourself all day! Most people find they need to allow 2 hours between eating and taking class. As you practice this yoga, your own innate wisdom will emerge and guide you as to what is right for you.

Please come to class well hydrated. Drink a lot of water throughout the day to ensure you’re properly hydrated for class (half your body weight in ounces). We advise all students to take an electrolyte supplement, and offer a wide variety for purchase at the studio.

How often should I practice?

Aim to practice 3 – 5 times a week. The more often you practice, the quicker you will see results. Sometimes it takes a few classes for your body to get acclimated to exercising in a heated environment.

What if I need to leave early?

Each class is either 60 / 90 minutes. We suggest you select a class time when you can stay to practice the entire class.

Am I allowed to leave the yoga room?

We encourage all students to stay in the yoga room for the entire 60 / 90 minutes; instead of leaving, take as many breaks as needed so your body can acclimate to the heat.

Part of the practice is to build concentration, determination, and self control. If you absolutely must leave the room, make sure the teacher knows you’ve left and come back as quickly as possible.

Can I practice yoga with an injury?

Yes!  Bikram yoga helps heal old injuries and prevent new ones. The heat is therapeutic for your muscles, joints, and tissue.  For existing injuries and medical conditions, the healing process can be supported with the continued practice of Bikram yoga.

We ask that students notify their instructor about any injuries before class.

Can I practice if I am pregnant?

Maybe. If you have been practicing consistently for at least 6 months at Bikram Yoga Dallas and you have permission from your doctor, you may continue to practice. You will be required to bring a release from your doctor in order to continue to practice in the hot room. Please notify our staff as soon as you find out.

I run or do other forms of exercise. Should I do Bikram yoga, too?

Yes!  Bikram yoga is excellent for helping align and strengthen your body, and is a great compliment to all other forms of exercise.  Many athletes practice Bikram yoga to heal and recover from stress their bodies experience performing high-impact sports or other workouts.
