Whether you’ve decided to take up the practice of yoga for fitness, its calming effects, or greater flexibility and control of your body, you’re likely not far from a studio, no matter what part of the greater Memphis area you call home. To help you narrow the choices, we picked one yoga studio per part of town for you to consider.
Bikram Yoga Overton Square
2105 Madison Ave., Ste. 205, Memphis • (901) 907-0187
Bikram Yoga Overton Square opened in March 2014, nearly a decade after the East Memphis location on Sanderlin opened. Bikram Yoga is different from other types of “hot” yoga because it is led by a certified Bikram Yoga instructor. The practice includes a 26 posture sequence and two breathing exercises. A unique offering included in Bikram Yoga Memphis membership is Hot Pilates, which is a combination of Pilates with high intensity interval training, or HIIT. Both Bikram Memphis locations feature Bikram-certified teachers and industrial heating and ventilation, including antibacterial flotex flooring and state-of-the-art sound equipment.
