10 Bikram Yoga Practice Tips from a 10 Year Bikram Practitioner!

Caty’s Top Ten Practice Tips

Bikram Yoga is a lifelong practice. Just like anything else that becomes part of our daily lives, there is an ebb and flow to it physically and mentally. Our very own Caty has been teaching for TEN YEARS (and practicing longer than that!) and has decided to share her top ten Practice Tips to help you stay motivated and inspired!

1.  Have zero expectations of your practice.

2.  Just show up and breathe.

3.  Be open to what is revealed to you about your body, mind and spirit.

4.  When something or someone disrupts you, what is that telling you about your practice? In other words, let no one steal your peace! Practice acceptance of others.

5.  Practice acceptance of yourself. However, don’t define or accept any limitations on your life or your practice. Anything is possible once you change your mind!

6.  Rest if you need to. The hardest thing to do in class is to be still, it’s also ok to take a time off, you’ll experience gratitude when you come back

7.  Your practice if part of your life plan, set goals: add another class, attend a workshop, compete, never settle into complacency.

8.  Share your practice! Leverage the studio, education system, athletes, and your peers to share yoga in the community, youth or in your work.

9.  Share this gift of yoga! Think of how you feel after your practice – encourage friends, coworkers, family to give it a try,  and you will change their life as you have changed your own.

10.  Be and feel accomplishment. 90 minutes is a telltale sign that you understand the importance of self care and in order to help others you must take care of yourself – feel good about that!

Early bird classes begin June, 21st!

6:15AM 60 Minute Express Classes

Same postures, same heat, shorter class time.  All of us at Bikram Yoga Binghamton are excited to announce the addition of early morning class times starting next week. Summer is officially here and it is our hope that these early morning class times will allow you to get your Yoga in early so that you have more time to soak up the sun and enjoy all of the wonders that summer brings. With warm weather upon us, we know that sometimes you have to choose between making it to class or spending time outdoors. Now you can accomplish both. Yoga class and a green juice all before 8AM – how good does that sound? Let’s kick things off with a bang! Save your space for class next Wednesday, June 18th here (existing members – sign in using the email address you receive our newsletter from to sync directly to your membership).

Curious about the 60 Minute Class format? These early morning Express Classes are designed for those of you that need to get your Yoga in before you have to head to class or to work in the morning. You can be in, out, showered, and to the office before 8AM if you need to be. Throughout this sixty minute class you will practice the same sequence of postures in the same heated room that you are used to. You’ll practice two sets of most postures and one set of a select few. You’ll be amazed at how good you feel and you’ll leave class energized and with enough time to get ready for work, school, or play.

Starting next Wednesday, June 21st ….
Monday. Wednesday, & Friday 
6:15AM – 7:15AM 60 Minute Express Class
Beginners always welcome. As always, check out our live schedule for our most up to date class schedule.
