We’ve got some exciting news to share with you – Bikram Yoga River North was named by Chicago Magazine as the “Best Hot Yoga Studio” in Chicago for 2013! The selection was featured in the Chicago-centric magazine’s August issue, also known as the “Best of Chicago” issue.
Chicago Magazine features local businesses each year that they feel deserve “best of” recognition in specific categories. For 2013, the magazine chose 102 places that they touted as being the absolute best things that the Chicago metro area has to offer. Bikram Yoga River North was selected as the best hot yoga studio in Chicago, in a broader category titled “Best Yoga Studios”, which also featured the best traditional yoga studio, the best prenatal yoga studio, and the best hybrid yoga studio (a yoga studio that also combines other fitness trends along with yoga) in Chicago.
In addition to Bikram Yoga River North’s “best hot yoga studio” designation, Chicago Magazine selected “best of” recipients in a variety of categories, ranging from Food and Drinking & Nightlife, to Culture & Fun and Style & Shopping. Readers of the magazine can be inspired about anything from where to enjoy the best dim sum to what the best place is for a first date in Chicago.
We are proud of our designation as the best hot yoga classes offered in Chicago and are excited by our inclusion in Chicago Magazine’s annual Best of Chicago issue. We strive to provide a premier yoga experience in Chicago, focusing on everything from our experienced and personable Bikram certified yoga instructors to our state-of-the-art facility, which features over 6,000 square feet, making it one of the largest yoga studios of its kind in the U.S. Additionally, we offer a hot room spanning more than 2,000 square feet, which is heated to 105 degrees Fahrenheit and is kept at 43% humidity. The studio is well ventilated and features an odor-repelling floor to combat the effects of our hot and sweaty yoga students. We also have expansive locker rooms with individual lockers, changing rooms and showers, as well as a spacious and comfortable lobby.
If you are already one of our Bikram yoga students, we hope you have been enjoying your experience at Chicago’s best hot yoga classes, as determined by Chicago Magazine this year. We are committed to providing you with the best possible Bikram Yoga experience possible, and hope you also believe we deserve the recognition we have received.
If you are new to our studio, or even if you have never before tried Bikram Yoga, we invite you to give us a try! We offer a FREE Bikram yoga class each week on Sundays at 4:30pm, and are the only yoga studio in Chicago offering free yoga classes! We do so to honor Bikram Choudhury, the founder of Bikram Yoga, and also as a way to let those who have never experienced Bikram Yoga, or who have never experienced hot yoga at our studio, to see what it’s all about!
We’d like to thank our incredible staff – and our students – for helping to make Bikram Yoga River North the “Best Hot Yoga Studio” in Chicago!
