Name: Bikram Yoga Greater Portland

Location: Portland, OR, USA (Sellwood & Hall Street Studios)

Classes Offered: Bikram Yoga

Amenities: Retail, yoga mat & towel rentals, purified water filters, quality shampoo & conditioner in showers, feminine products in women’s room, hair rubber bands

Owner: Douglas MacReynold

Website: www.bikramyogapdx.com

My Experience:

I visited both the Sellwood and Hall Street studios in the greater Portland area and took advantage of their one month for $29 introductory special.

I enjoyed taking Omar’s class –he spoke with complete confidence and even demonstrated the proper technique for a few poses during class. Omar is a traveling yogi himself, which made me like him even more (he recently taught in the Philippines).

Both studios tend to run on the cooler side, so wear long sleeves if you get the chills from a drafty room (teachers tend to open the doors on occasion as well).

Portlandians must love their Bikram yoga because all the classes I took were packed (which I like because I find power in collective group energy).

The Sellwood studio has one shower for both men and women, so prepare to wait if you need to clean up after class. The Hall Street studio is large and has a shower in the locker rooms.

Portland is a food lover’s town; I’m glad there are several yoga studios (especially Bikram) to work off the dim sum and food cart tacos I indulged in!

    Do you review mostly just Bikram studios or is this just what I’m seeing?

      Hi Sara,
      I review all and as many studios as I can, and there are a few reviews on here that aren’t Bikram, but while I’m on the road and when I typically only have one or two days in a city, I prefer to go to Bikram studios because I like to sweat and detox, and Bikram helps me rejuvinate :) … I love all kinds of yoga but unfortunately I don’t have the time to visit as many studios as I would like and have to be careful with how much I’m spending on yoga.

    Hi nice to find your blog.
    I am just about to leave for India (from Portland Or) where I live.
    I am travelling alone, to begin with but then plan on meeting and travelling with other devotees.
    It was great hearing your experience and I pray that the trip will be a blessed experience.
    I also agree that staying in hotels, even fancy ones, wears off.
    I am going to do something for me and explore myself and God.
    I hope u have fun and where are you now btw?
    Thanks
    Clarity

      Blessings on your travels. I am in Chicago right now, studying to become a naturopathic doctor. Namaste.
