I’m perennially grateful for the warm and welcoming community that is the staff and students of the Pure Sweat studio. I’ve practiced Bikram yoga almost daily for 8 years and at this point, I really think of it as a life-long practice. I feel better than I ever did when I was in my twenties, and I’ve always been an active person. Many people find the idea of “hot yoga” daunting—and it’s definitely a challenge! There’s an adjustment period, and it can be quite humbling. But the difficult days are as important as the days that feel easy: There’s always something new to learn about yourself, even when you’ve practiced a posture literally hundreds of times. Kitty Liu

This is a fantastic Bikram Yoga studio with excellent, caring instructors. They have all have made a real effort to work with me and help me find modifications to the postures that will allow me to get the most out of class. I have dabbled in yoga elsewhere before, and even recently when out of town, and can say without reservation that the instructors at this studio are far and away the most helpful I’ve encountered anywhere. Class sizes are usually relatively small and make it possible for the instructors to really try to help everyone, from the complete novice like me to even the most practiced participants. The atmosphere is very warm (both figuratively and literally) and welcoming. I highly recommend that you check out Pure Sweat – Bikram Method Yoga.

I entered Pure Sweat Yoga studio a skeptic on a one week pass gifted to me. I was in for a pleasant surprise! The staff is incredibly helpful, motivating and knowledgeable. That coupled with the incredible detox I felt after my first practice, I knew I was hooked. 

Staff called me by name on every visit that week, even before I signed in. There was no pressure, just caring and encouragement to try harder every posture and practice.

In many years as a triathlete and runner,  I’ve never felt as good as after a session at this studio. Its the toughest workout I’ve done but the rewards are priceless. Get in here and change your life! I did.
