How Much Do Bikram Yoga Classes Cost?

 
average costGroup Class: $8-$25 Eachhigh costPrivate Class: $90-$125 Per Person

In contrast to traditional yoga classes, Bikram Yoga sessions are practiced in a room heated to 105 degrees Fahrenheit and about 40%-50% humidity. This is designed to deepen stretching and reduce injuries.

Typical costs:

  • Bikram Yoga group classes cost about $8-$25 each for adults and about $10 for children ages 6-16, per lesson, depending on location and level of instructor. During class 26 postures[1] and 2 breathing exercises are each performed twice in a sequence designed by Bikram Choudhury.
  • Private Bikram Yoga lessons cost about $90-$125 per person, depending on location and level of instructor and allow students to learn or sharpen postures with immediate feedback. In California, Laguna Beach Bikram Yoga[2] charges $95 per hour or $75 per person for a small private group of two to five students.

What should be included:
  • Bikram Yoga sessions are 90 minutes long. Light, non-restrictive clothing is recommended. Instructors should be trained and certified through a nine-week course that includes anatomy, posture clinics and lectures.
Additional costs:
  • Mats offer support and a non-skid surface during postures. Most studios require students to buy their own yoga mats, which typically cost about $12-$95, depending on thickness and manufacturer. For example, the Hugger Mugger Tapas Travel Mat[3] weighs about 1.6 pounds and measures 1/16" thick, while the seven-pound and 1/4" thick Manduka Black Mat Pro[4] costs $94.
  • Mat towels cost about $17-$64 and are used to cover the mats and collect sweat. Hand towels cost $10-$15. Some studios include towels in package pricing or offer towel rentals at $3-$4 per class.
Discounts:
  • Buying multiple classes at one time can reduce the per-class rate. For example, a package of 10 classes typically cost $110-$180 per person, depending on location while a one-month unlimited pass costs about $120-$185. Introductory rates can be as low as $10-$25 for the first 7-10 days.
  • Student or senior discounts are available at some studios.
Shopping for bikram yoga classes:
  • BikramYoga.com, the company started by creator Bikram Choudhury in the 1970s, maintains a list of affiliated studios by state[5] . Classes may be found at Yoga Studios USA[6] .
  • Check local community college or adult education catalogs for upcoming sessions.
