Bikram Yoga

Bikram Yoga is a local yoga studio that fits in great in the "Famously Hot" city of Columbia. They are unique because their studio is designed to improve the body with heat; quite literally. All their various yoga classes are hosted in 105 degree temperatures and with 40% humidity following the traditional Bikram characteristics. There are a variety of class types including 90 minutes, 75 minutes, 60 minutes and Inferno Hot Pilates throughout the week consisting of the 26 postures. You can fit any of these classes into your busy schedule and ensure a great whole body workout.

They also offer another unique option called Torched Barre. See their description below for more information!

Torched Barre

As if Columbia, SC was not hot enough, Torched Barre raises the temperature even higher, 95 degrees to be specific. Bikram Yoga offers a great alternative to traditional barre with this class. You are not only getting a great strengthening workout but also cardiovascular challenge due to the heat to burn even more fat and calories for a productive workout. The idea is to shape and tone your body with high repetition and low impact.
