Why is it important to learn from a Certified Bikram Yoga Instructor?
Bikram Yoga is a specialized form of yoga, requiring appropriate training and knowledge to teach it safely and effectively.
Bikram Choudhury, the creator of Bikram Yoga, personally trains and certifies his instructors to ensure that his methods and philosophy are preserved and properly taught. To be certified as a Bikram Yoga instructor, one must complete an intensive nine-week training session requiring more than 500 hours of study. A studio guided by a Certified Instructor provides the best possible instruction in the Bikram Method. Certified Instructors have a continuing connection to Bikram Choudhury and his training staff, allowing the Certified Studio to draw from all of the resources Bikram’s training center has to offer. This includes special seminars, posture clinics, guest instructors and answers to questions which may arise in a particular practitioner’s Bikram Yoga practice.
All of our instructors also maintain current re-certification qualifications. Every certified instructor must meet re-certification standards every three years by returning to study with Bikram himself. This ensures that our students receive the highest quality of instruction available today. Along with our regular teaching staff, we often have visiting guest teachers who teach at Bikram Yoga, Tri-Cities. You can be assured that all of our visiting instructors are also currently certified Bikram Yoga instructors.
