Welcome to the Original
Bikram’s School in San Diego
The first, largest, original, and Authentic Bikram Yoga school in San Diego (established in 1998), we offer Bikram’s Beginning Hatha Yoga Class with a full schedule of classes daily. The Class is for beginners through advanced. We encourage beginners to come to this class (even if you’ve never done Yoga or any exercise at all).
Bikram’s Beginning Hatha Yoga Class is a comprehensive 90-minute class consisting of a series of 26 Yoga Postures and 2 breathing exercises, developed by Yogiraj Bikram Choudhury in the 1960’s, brought to the USA by Bikram in 1973, and taught and practiced around the world..
All instructors we bring in to Bikram’s Yoga College of India, San Diego have been certified by Bikram Choudhury after graduating from his intensive Teacher Training Programs. All are required to Re-Certify every 3 years, and to maintain the integrity of Bikram’s Hatha Yoga system.
