“I have been practicing for about 4 years and practiced in at least 2 other countries and have tried other yoga too; some hot, and some not. What is consistent and outstanding is the calibre of instructors at Bikram Yoga Marda Loop. Each and every one is Excellent. We are fortunate to have the quality of instruction available right here in Calgary.”  Cheers, P.W

"the feeling upon entering byml is warm, welcoming, and healthy. good vibes surrounded me, as did community that radiated happiness and health. you know, the kind. the bikram kind.  when you sweat that much, cleanliness is, as they say, next to godliness and the studio is well-maintained.the practice first changed my mind, then my heart, and now slowly my body. see for yourself."  sabrina

Participants say:

The Yoga Therapy for Spine & Mind class has improved circulation & feeling to my hip, and my injured leg feels so much better after only 2 sessions. My body feels lighter and more flexible!``` Roberta

"I ran a half marathon after not much preparation.  I was tired, in pain, and increasingly stiff as the day progressed.  My mobility became almost non-existent and my back pain was kicking in.  My walking style was similar to that of a penguin.  I was very reluctant to go to yoga that evening – after all, I couldn’t really move, let alone stretch. However, I did go and it wasn’t a walk in the park for me to go through this session.  I thought holding Shoelace or Baby Dragon poses for 4 minutes would increase the considerable pain I already had.  The pain was there during most of the session, and I was having not so nice thoughts about Hannah.  I was hoping that at some point she would let go and say ‘Let’s do Shavasana for 15 minutes’ and let me rest a bit.  Thankfully she didn’t say such a thing; and to my surprise, after “Yoga Therapy for Spine & Mind” session my body fully recovered.  I slept like a baby (not Baby Dragon, but a human one)."  Denis


Testimonials

"After losing a lot of weight I found I had hit a plateau and was becoming really discouraged with my path to a healthier lifestyle. My sisters had been telling me about Bikram for a while and how much they love the class. I decided I needed a push and after doing the introductory 2 week offer I decided to push myself and do the 30 day challenge. Not only did the challenge improve my overall fitness physically, mentally and emtionally, but it gave me the motivation, strength and positive outlook I need to keep bettering myself on a daily basis. I know I can do anything if I set my mind to it!"  Tiffaney
"Bikram helped my lower back pain by strengthening my spine" Bre
"While the physical aspects of practicing Bikram Yoga have made me feel much stronger, the greatest benefit has been the mental and emotional aspects. Before starting Bikram Yoga, I experienced insomnia most of every night. Since attending classes, I often sleep through the night, or wake up just once and am able to return to sleep. My outlook and attitude has become very positive since attending Bikram Yoga." Bruce
" The 30 day challenge is changing my life." Graham

"I started yoga because I was doing a lot of weightlifting and I was always stiff and sore when I played basketball because I never stretched after my workouts.   Once I started Bikram yoga, my vertical increased, I got faster, and I was able to lift heavier weights due to the breathing & strengthening exercises in class, plus I was stretching properly which helped me gain muscle mass. The yoga also helps me to recover faster after a work out because of the amount of blood flow to the muscle group, it also cleanses out my joints which has helped prevent injury.   When I ruptured my ACL in my knee yoga helped clean out the knee and gain full range of motion. I made a full recovery and was playing basketball 6 months after surgery. I can now squat and dead lift over 300 pounds and I've managed to gain the muscles back in my leg!"   Daniel

"I was just thinking about the meditation session and again, I found it so fitting. When asked what I would say/do/be...it was an almost immediate response to be kind and love and accept myself as freely as I do others. Something I continually work.  What a great thing to meditate on. Thank you for this."   Nina

"My shoulder & arm pain has improved after only 4 classes.  I no longer need physiotherapy."   JJ

"The breathing exercises have improved my poise in front of an audience at work; which communicates confidence and authority.  Coincidentally, I lost 8 pounds in 2 weeks of consecutive yoga classes."   Sam

"I mean it - I love the class - the teachers are inspirational.  I feel better physically and mentally when I can force myself to come.  Sometimes the classes are still really hard, but I have had a few relaxing ones.  My knees are way better than they were when I started. I am a convert for sure."   Shelley 

"When I can't fall asleep I do the dialogue in my head and visualize myself doing the asanas. By eagle pose I'm usually back asleep! Also, visualizing myself doing the postures improves my postures."   Carmen

"I tried Bikram Yoga because I was experiencing pain in my hips and knees. I have been a competitive athlete most of my life and had found myself at a stage where I was experiencing pain simply in my day-to-day living. The results of practicing yoga 3x/week have surpassed my expectations. Not only has my joint pain disappeared, I have benefited in ways I couldn't have imagined. Most notably, the lengthening of my torso and strengthening of my core has made a difference in my daily living. I've been practicing yoga for a year and a half and can't imagine life without it!"  Trish

"Practicing Bikram Yoga makes me feel better than anything else I have done in my entire life. The best part is that calm, clear, happy feeling after class. After many classes, I also enjoy greater flexibility and mental focus."  Marla

"Thanks for providing me with a space to take care of myself. No matter how frequently I attend, or how long my absence has been, I always feel like I am being welcomed back with a great deal of support and lots of smiles. You and your team have created a wonderful, safe environment that I continue to return to, to mend and grow - thank you for this!" Jennifer

"I had been a casual attendee of Bikram Yoga for several years when I suffered a back and hip injury in a car accident. Although my injury had partially resolved with treatments, I was concerned about returning to the rigours of the Bikram classes, so I registered for Hannah's 4 week Yoga for Spine and Mind. The small class atmosphere and individual focus not only helped to improve my hip pain significantly, it left me with other benefits: the knowledge I can stretch my hip out on my own when it gets tight (I have a love-hate relationship with flying dragon), AND I have successfully returned to the regular BIkram classes, after almost 2 years away! Hannah's teachings and encouragement helped me get where I was meant to be. Thank you Hannah!"  Tara
