Bed of Nails - Bikram Choudhury

This is an old video of a stunt often performed by Bikram and Bisu Ghosh (Bishnu Charan Ghosh's son). Performance, contortion, feats of strength, and stunts like this were a common way they would advertise and demonstrate the effectiveness of the yoga.

Hell-Bent: Obsession, Pain, and the Search for Something Like Transcendence in Competitive Yoga

Hi everyone! We're getting ready to launch some live classes through zoom starting next week.

• Wednesdays 4:30 Bikram

• Saturdays 9:30 Hatha

• Two live posture clinics- one on the standing series and one on the floor series.

We need use help! Now that life is so different in quarantine we would love some feedback as to what times would work best for live classes, posture clinics, and groups? Weeknights? Weekend mornings? Afternoons?

We are also starting a book club. I'll post with more details about that soon but the first book is going to be "Hell-Bent" by Benjamin Lorr. It's a great read about the world of Bikram Yoga. It's a really fun, quick read and will be great for sparking discussions. It also starts to bring in some of the history of this lineage so we will be able to incorporate some education about that as well.

Your feedback is appreciated. In the meantime order your copy of the book! Author Benjamin Lorr wandered into a yoga studio―and fell down a rabbit holeHell-Bent explores a fascinating, often surreal world at the extremes of American yoga. Benjamin Lorr walked into his first yoga studio on a whim, overweight and curious, and quickly found the yoga reinventing his life. H....

Thinking of everyone this morning. It’s hard to believe that just one week ago so many of us were gathered in this room for our Sunday morning practice. There are moments where it feels like a lifetime ago. We miss you so much and can’t wait for the day we walk into this space together again. We have a YouTube page and a private Facebook group set up where we are sharing yoga classes and more. We’re working on a new page on the website where you’ll be able to access all of the content in one place as well. Please know that we are here from you beyond the yoga. And remember: If you’re thirsty, drink. If you’re tired, rest. If you’re hungry, eat. If you’re lonely, come to (virtual) yoga. #yogacureny #enjoytroy #hotyoga #yogafamily #weloveyou #hydrate #takecareofyourself

Yoga Cure

We are excited to announce a new home for Bikram Yoga in the Capital District! Yoga Cure will be coming soon to the 16 North Plaza in Troy. The first of its kind in the area, the studio will be fully focused on the therapeutic benefits of the hot yoga practice. Along with Bikram Yoga we will also offer Ghosh Yoga classes which is the broader lineage that the Bikram (26+2) series comes from. Ghosh Yoga uses simple therapeutic exercises to mobilize and strengthen every are of the body, from the eyes down to the toes, including the internal organs and systems. In this way, it resembles physical therapy. It uses postures (asana) to bring grace and control to the body and stillness to the mind. It uses breathing exercises (pranayama) and meditation to reduce stress and anxiety. Other offerings will include Yin Yoga, Breath work, Meditation and Bodywork.

Our goal is to help you create a better quality of life while building a diverse and inclusive community. We want everyone to feel comfortable practicing with us regardless of age, size, ability or condition.
