All of our instructors at Bikram CoolSprings are certified to teach the Bikram Method of Hot Yoga. Each instructor at Bikram CoolSprings studied the Hot Yoga method for 9 consecutive weeks and received more than 500 hours of instruction from Bikram Choudhury himself, along with his senior staff. Bikram instructors are required to recertify every 3 years; and currently, our teachers are the only instructors in the Middle Tennessee area who have fulfilled all their requirements to earn and maintain their good standing with Bikram Choudhury as certified Bikram instructors.
Bikram Certified Instructors
It takes more than a hot room and a list of postures to make your Bikram Method Yoga practice a safe, rewarding experience. Bikram Method Yoga is a specialized form of yoga, requiring appropriate training and knowledge to teach it effectively.
Bikram Choudhury, the creator of Bikram Yoga, personally trains and certifies his hot yoga instructors to ensure that his methods and philosophy are preserved and properly taught. To be certified as an instructor in the Bikram Method of Yoga, an instructor must complete an intense and consecutive 9 weeks of on-site training requiring more than 500 hours of study (all studio owners have successfully completed a 6 month apprenticeship under the direction of a Bikram certified senior teacher). A hot yoga studio guided by a Certified Instructor provides the best possible instruction in the Bikram Method. The Bikram CoolSprings instructors have a continuing connection to Bikram Choudhury and his training staff, allowing our studio to draw from all of the resources Bikram's training center has to offer. This includes special seminars, posture clinics, guest instructors, and answers to questions which may arise in a particular practitioner's Bikram Yoga practice.
Many can claim they teach "Bikram Yoga," but unless there is a Certified Bikram Instructor supervising how and what is taught at that studio, you are not getting true Bikram Yoga.
