Online Pre-registration Quota

We offer 100% of our inventory to be booked online. If you see a class that indicates waitlist only, the class is currently full and students on the waitlist will be added as others cancel. For more information about how waitlists work, please visit this page.

Heat

Our instructors try their very best to cater to everyone, but as seasons change so do environmental conditions. As the humidity changes, so do the conditions of the room. Additionally, at each studio there are “microclimates” in the room – if you want a warmer or cooler spot, please ask the instructor where to go. Students are not permitted to touch any of the heating equipment, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, fans or windows.

Security

Please bring a lock with you to the studio. If you do not have a lock, we have them for sale at the front desk for $5. We do not allow any personal items such as purses, cellphones, etc. into the yoga room. Please plan accordingly. Bikram Yoga NYC is not responsible for your personal property.

Grooming & Cleanliness

Please keep body and feet clean when attending class. Please do not attend class with open wounds. No perfume (as some students are highly sensitive and/or allergic to strong scents). Please clean up after yourself. Laundry bins are located throughout studio. Please use recycling bins for all bottles.

Cancellations

If you need to cancel your reservation, you may do so online at least 3 hours before the class begins, or your account will be debited for the class. Late Cancellations: Students on any unlimited package will be automatically charged $10 when absent for a class that has been booked online, but not cancelled 3 hours before it begins.

Feedback

Any comments or questions should be directed to a manager on duty. Alternatively, you may visit bikramyoganyc.com/contact to ask a question or leave a comment.

Before & After Class

In order for us to keep the studios, dressing rooms and lobby clean, the reception is open 30 minutes before class. The management and cleaning staff need time to have everything ready for you!  After class, we kindly ask that you finish up in dressing rooms within 45 minutes so that we may get in to clean.

Double Classes

Bikram Yoga NYC students are only allowed to take a maximum of 1 class a day. We can make an exception that once a week you may take a double class but only if we are provided a doctors note stating that you are in good health to participate in a hot yoga class for 3 hours in one day. Your health and best interest is our utmost concern.

Dress

Women should wear, capris or shorts and a tank top or jog bra (leotards alone are not permitted). Men should wear shorts (no boxer shorts/briefs or underwear). Women, please no bikini bathing suits or underwear. No shoes or socks.
