Beginning Wednesday, February 1st, we’re getting with the times and offering 100% of our spots available for online reservations. Please take a moment to read this important announcement to insure you are guaranteed a spot in class.

This policy change primarily impacts our busier class times, such as weekday evenings and weekends. In the past, we’ve allowed two-thirds of a class to be booked online, and have left one-third of spots available for walk in students. For example, in a room that holds 30 people, 20 can book online and 10 spots are left for walk in students.

With the demand for space in our classes growing, we wanted to offer more of you the opportunity to guarantee a spot ahead of time, instead of arriving at the studio unsure if you’ll get a spot. With this change, we ask that you book your classes in advance using our free mobile app or on our website.



If a class you want to take indicates “Waitlist Only,” you can add yourself and we’ll notify you if/when the space becomes available. All automated waitlist notification emails and text messages will be delivered 1 or more hours before the class is due to begin. If you have not received a notification less than 1 hour before a class begins, you’re welcome to come to the studio and see if there are any last minute cancellations.

Walk-in bookings are always welcome when space is available

Once sign in has begun (30 minutes before class), all clients from the online waitlists will receive priority over clients who are not on the waitlist if there are any cancellations or no shows as long as they are at the studio. Reminder that Bikram Yoga NYC requires all students to check in no later than 7 minutes before class begins or their spot will be given way. Unlimited memberships holders (For example, Auto-Renew, Yearly, etc.) will be automatically charged a $10 no show fee, and class card holders (5 class card, 10 class card, etc.) will be docked one class, when reserving online but fail to cancel online 1 hour before class or don’t show up for class.

For more information about waitlists, click here.

If you’re unable to secure a spot online, you’re welcome to walk-in, however we wont know if we can offer you a spot in class until 7 minutes before when we release any no show reservations.


Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at any of the numbers listed at the bottom of this page, or click here to send us an email.

What does the word surrender mean to you?

instument We live in a world that doesn’t recognize the amazing power of surrender. As a result, we are anxiety ridden, unbalanced, and stressed out. In this fast paced society, our central nervous systems are on constant overdrive, which can create mental, emotional and physical illness. We run too fast, too hard and for too long creating stress, anxiety and tension in our minds and bodies. When we take the time to gift ourselves with moments of surrender that is when are able to heal and when we heal we are able to receive and let joy and abundance flow freely.

Join Instructor Yarrow Bucans – and Sound Healer Hiko Konami – as they guide you on a powerful journey to surrender. In this workshop you will experience deep energetic, emotional, and physical release through yin postures and sound healing.


Yin yoga postures are designed to open up the body by prolonged holds of deep stretching techniques – typically between 1 to 5 minutes in length. These techniques put both your body and mind in a state of deep relaxation. Sound baths move the brain into deeper Alpha and Theta brain wave frequencies, inducing meditative and peaceful states that allow for clarity of mind and intuition. A few benefits of sound healing are: Improved sleep; deep sense of tranquility; relieves stress, anxiety, depression and emotional pain.

Put together – Yin led by Yarrow and Sound Healing by Hiko – this event will guide you into a meditative state, allowing you to surrender, release, let go, and heal.

Yin Yoga Sound Bath – The Power of Surrender
Sunday, February 26th – 5:30pm to 8:00pm
182 5th Avenue – Flatiron
