Bikram Yoga Natick was founded by Maria McBride, opened on September 30, 2010 and has always been independently female owned and
operated. We welcome anyone who wants to try Bikram Yoga: beginners, advanced students, elite athletes, couch potatoes alike! We have a strong community, and the studio's skilled teachers will encourage you along your yoga journey.
We are proud to be a part of Natick's network of small businesses. Your money goes toward keeping our yoga room one of the juiciest (and most envied) hot rooms in the area and toward paying our compassionate and talented teaching staff. Your support helps to grow our local economy.
We have never been a franchise, and we never will be.
Our mission is to bring healing to you every time you walk into the hot room. We require our teachers to train and mentor with us as well as our local mentor, world-respected Diane Ducharme. Keeping the postures and the yoga pure to their original healing prescription is what keeps us going. Bikram Yoga is hot, 26 postures, 2 breathing exercises, and consistent.
We refer to Bikram Yoga as a noun, not a person's name. We have always felt comfortable using the title because Bikram Yoga is a brilliant and life-changing style of yoga. Furthermore, it connects us worldwide to a wonderful and unique community of teachers and students.
The studio is conveniently located at 6 Huron Drive, which is in the East Natick Industrial park half a mile from Route 9 and half a mile from Route 30. We have ample parking on the street as well as in the South Parking lot (located to the left of the building).
Bikram Yoga is a 90-minute series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises done in a specific order in a heated room. The yoga works every muscle, tendon, ligament, and joint in the body and is an extremely healing form of exercise. The benefits of Bikram Yoga include:
Increase in flexibility
Increase in strength
Why the Heat?
Practicing yoga in a heated room allows to body to stretch more easily and safely. The heat increases sweating so the body can cleanse its largest organ – the skin – and helps to detoxify the internal organs. In addition, the heat allows more oxygenated blood to move through the entire body.
