The Hot Room!

Here it is, almost done! The room will have mirrors along the left side wall and the wall directly behind the camera. The wood framing on the top left will house our custom-built heating/ventilation system, which will also include built-in air purification and humidification. It's going to be hot!

Faith. Patience.

Concentration, determination, self-control...

Bikram Yoga UCP is nearing completion! We're putting drywall up right now, picking out paint colors this afternoon. The hot room should be done by the end of the weekend. We'll have pictures and more updates soon.

Right now we are aiming for a grand opening in the beginning of August (who says you can't do hot yoga in the dog days of summer?), keep checking back for more information.

Thank you all for your patience as we move forward, we can't wait to start teaching classes!

Back in Business

Hello friends! Our sincere apologies for dropping off the radar for so long, we hit a snag with the city authorities and went into a bit of a lull for a moment there. Regardless, it's all sorted out now and we're back on track. Construction, which had been on hold for about ten weeks (but who's counting, right?) is now rolling forward once again. Here's a picture of Sky and his son Bhima touring the site just yesterday:

Walls and a roof going up! That iron column to the far right of the picture marks the back wall of the hot room. Sky and Bhima are facing the wall for the mirrors. The roof is already built over the reception/lobby area, with the blue tarp hanging across the entrance.

Our projected opening date has moved into the summer, most likely in July. We'll keep you posted on progress as we move forward. Be well, and see you in the hot room very soon!

Up on the rooftop on January 11th, just before construction starts on the roof. This is where our studio will live, once the second floor is put up. Sky's pretty freakin' excited about it.
