Bikram Yoga is a heated hatha yoga class. It is designed to be accessible for a beginner and challenging for a veteran practitioner. Our teachers will lead you through 26 postures and two breathing exercises that work your entire body from head to toes and bones to the skin.
The postures are taught step-by-step so each student can find their therapeutic maximum each day. You will see students of all ages and in all phases of each posture in class. As a student, your job is to listen carefully to your teacher and your body and do the best you can each day.
New students are welcome in all classes. Don’t be surprised if you can’t do everything on the very first day or if you need to sit down to rest during your first class or two. Remember, every student in that room had their first class, too.

Bikram Yoga Portsmouth is truly a magical place. It is transforming, challenging and motivating. The studio is clean, modern and inviting; there is a warm and welcoming community of individuals that practice at the studio. I began practicing Bikram Yoga over 16 years ago and I have practiced at numerous Bikram Yoga studios across the country and there is nothing like the one in Portsmouth. The instructors are motivating, inspiring and have a personal approach that is unlike any other studio I have ever been. They positively reinforce, and share all the benefits and reasons of each posture and why we want to do them properly. It is absolutely a unique and motivating approach that sets BYP apart from many others. It keeps me coming back and craving more.
The energy and community at this studio is amazing. I came here on vacation and was welcomed immediately. Students are kind, helpful, and hard-working. I loved how each class was full of "normal" people of all ages, shapes, and sizes.
I love the teacher’s voice in the hot room. They are so clear and simply tell us what to do you, moment by moment. It’s the best feeling that I don’t have to think for 90 minutes. I can just listen and be present in my body.
From my first class, I was hooked. Bikram Yoga is unlike any exercise program I’ve been involved in. This studio offers strengthening of the body and the soul. When I began I had neck issues from two auto accident, bursitis, and bunions. I amazed at the healing in all areas of my body, but also at the soul healing!
From my first visit at the old studio, I knew BYP was a special place. Without it, I would have had a much harder time re-locating to Portsmouth. You have built an amazing community of caring and loving people and that’s what keeps me coming back.
After surviving meningitis, I was told I had to strengthen my immune system to stay healthy. I came to Bikram Yoga Portsmouth to do just that. While Bikram Yoga has helped me accomplish that goal, it has done a lot more for me as well. For years, I worked in a very stressful job, but found that showing up for yoga was the best de-stressor I had ever experienced and guaranteed me a good night’s sleep. BYP represents even more with the quality and professionalism of its teachers who reflect the character, humanity, and community spirit of Sara and Jaylon.
The teachers here have created a space where people can feel accepted, supported, and encouraged to be unique. They all demonstrate the courage to be vulnerable, which allows others to do the same. I’m so grateful to be a part of this community.
I’ve lost weight, my blood pressure is down, and my bum knee feels great!
