The other day I popped down to check out a fantastic new Bikram yoga studio that opened in Auckland earlier this year. Bikram Yoga Britomart is located down the bottom of town in an old character building in Fort Street. I met up with Rebeckh the owner of the studio to have a chat about how things have been going and to get a tour of this great new studio. Rebeckh reports the studio has been open for 7 months and it is getting busier and busier as more city dwellers discover it. Bikram yoga Briotmart has a great inner city location which is ideal if you live or work in town. Also if you are not too far from the city Rebeckh has organised for handy parking options nearby. Located upstairs from the road as you climb the stairs from the street to the studio you literally do feel like you are being transported to another world. The studio has a distinct Balinese feel, and careful thought has obviously been put into everything from the seating in the reception, to the lighting and changing room fit-out... all the elements work to create a beautiful relaxing space. I love how the studio also works in harmony with the buildings character features; the yoga studio has high ceilings and exposed brick walls and in the reception the large windows look out over the hustle and bustle of the street below. It really does feel like an escape from the busy city below. Currently they have 4 classes a day, an early morning class from 6am till 7.30am, lunch time classes and then the more popular after work classes at 5.30pm and 7.30pm. However there are exciting things to come. Rebeckh reports that they are currently in the process of opening a second studio so they can have two classes running at once. So if 5.30pm is too much of a stretch to get to from work, keep an eye out for the 6pm class starting soon. The second studio also means that classes won't be as full so you don't have to worry about whether you'll be able to find a spot if you are running a little late. This Bikram yoga studio is an exciting addition to Auckland's yoga scene and I can't wait to get back and try a class there. It is definitely worth checking out - so I will see some of you there very soon :-) Click here for more information about this great new Bikram Yoga Studio.
