Make shapes through the heat above the buzzing streets of New York City at Manhattan’s first ever Bikram studio, Bode NYC.

I visited the studio to practice a Classic 90 class on a casual pass one weekday afternoon. The class was busy and felt very “New York City”, even practicing some poses sideways to make room with the little space between us. The teacher was upbeat and friendly, offering a fun 90 minute Bikram class.

  1. I tried hot yoga once here in Sydney and nearly melted! That said, I love working out on holidays, we usually go for a run and if I’m staying somewhere for a reasonable time, I’ll join a gym and do some classes too. For me, it’s all part of the holiday fun!
