I am from Madrid, love the city and want to share my special addresses. Every day a new idea, place or thing to do in Madrid. Everything has been thoroughly tested but it is only a personal opinion.

Bikram Yoga

Bikram Yoga is the most popular form of hot yoga; a series of yoga poses done in a heated room (40°C with a humidity of 40%). Bikram Choudhury invented it in the seventies claiming that blood circulation is affected very positively during its performance. 26 different Hatha yoga positions, repeated twice, you might find it hard the first week but soon you will feel improving shape and well being. In Madrid it is the new trend for exercising, the place I prefer being Birkam Yoga Center at the heart of Chueca district, calle Barquillo 38. You will end up sweating next to celebrities, it-girls and politicians.


  1. Love Bikram and our center BYC is the best in Madrid!

  2. I live in Madrid for the coming three months and I'd love to do some bikram yoga here! I don't speak spanish that well, do they give lessons in English as well? Ps. LOVE your blog!

      Good morning! Almost all the teachers are fluent in english, once you go for the first time ask for the bilingual lessons, the people at the desk front will surely help!

      There are many foreigners attending.. Namaste!

  3. Great yoga title and yoga poses also :D
    Short but very descriptive meaning :)

  4. Do they use essential oils while working on the asanas?

  5. This yoga is one of the best ways to get your body shape back after pregnancy!
