Mayu was amazing. It was my first class after years and years off. She was very encouraging to all new and old students. I had to rest multiple times and I never felt judged by Mayu. Instead, she encouraged us to go at our own pace and join when we were ready.
Well I can’t say anything about other studios because I’m a newbie but as a first experience of the full 90 minute Bikram Lili was great as an instructor, not too crowded. I’m pretty used to extra high temp dry saunas 160-180F but that is sitting very still. I would say I’m relatively fit but i could barely finish the last 15 minutes. I’ve practiced martial arts for years and have had many injuries and have no idea why I haven’t done this sooner. Long story short I LOVED it!! Do yourself a favor and come in here and feel amazing
The Long Beach Bikram Yoga staff are friendly, supportive and detailed when we are guided through our postures. I especially appreciate the comments to take care of our bodies (not to do more than we're able to) with each posture.
