East Side Yoga and Fitness Reviews
I love, love, love this studio. Megan has built so much more than just a set of walls for practicing yoga, she has built the foundation for a strong, wonderful community of yogis. Through hard work, sweat, laughter, and maybe even tears, you will find what you need here. I never thought I would be going on six years of Bikram practice, but for me it's the perfect combination of strenuous exercise, physical therapy and meditative restoration. The studio itself is bright and airy, and the teachers are wonderful, each bringing their own unique perspective to the practice. I highly recommend practicing yoga at this studio and getting to know its community!

If you are like me, a life long athlete who never appreciated the benefits of being strong and flexible, I strongly recommend you give it a try.

Well, here I am now, practicing yoga regularly, in the best shape and fe...
About 7 years ago I experienced debilitating back pain. I found no way to alleviate the pain. I was not able to sit and a large portion of my day is driving. For more than 3 years, I am a regular for 90 minutes of Bikram and by strengthening my back, I have been pain free. Of course, with the intensity of the beginner class, I have muscle aches but not the extreme pain that led me to try Bikram. I love the focus on alignment, the core and flexibility!!!
