The entire staff of Bikram Yoga Manchester would like to extend our appreciation to everyone for your commitment to enhancing your life through Bikram Yoga. In order to maintain harmony and to preserve the environment, we ask that you read and abide by the following policies:

  • Class starts on time, our doors open 30 minutes before class and we recommend getting here early, all students should arrive in good time at least 5 minutes before class, late comers will not be admitted, no exceptions!
  • Finish telephone conversations and turn off your mobile phone before entering reception
  • Leave shoes in shoe racks provided at reception
  • Please keep body and feet clean when attending class. If necessary, feel free to shower before class. As a courtesy to fellow students, please avoid perfumes and colognes. A kind note to smokers: Please brush your teeth and change your clothing before class as all odours are enhanced in the heated room
  • All classes are 90 minutes, students are expected to stay for the entire duration of the class. It is important to stay until the end of class. Postures towards the end of the series are designed to calm, cool and re-energize you
