Hot News...New Ownership of BYTP 

It is my pleasure to announce that beginning next week, Bikram Yoga Takoma Park will re-open under new ownership and management.  It is time for me to turn the reigns over to the next generation.  Bikram Yoga Takoma Park 2.0! will be owned and managed by Kendra Blackett-Dibinga, who also owns Bikram Yoga Riverdale Park and Bikram Yoga Ivy City.  With this change, you will see new wood flooring as you enter the studio.  You will see new flooring in the hot room.  You will see new colors and various other up-grades to maintain the wonderfully warn and community oriented environment that you have come to know as Bikram Yoga Takoma Park.  I'm excited by and fully supportive of Kendra’s expanded vision for continuing to provide this healing yoga in Takoma Park.
This ownership change will bring expanded benefits to existing Takoma Park members who will now have the choice of three different studios with unique membership options and a range of classes to fit your busy schedules. You will receive an email soon from Kendra as to what comes next and her vision for continuing the tradition of high quality yoga instruction in a peaceful setting. With all these bold and exciting changes in place, the studio will re-open next week.

As to what’s next for me .... well how do you spell vacation!  It has been almost eight years (and I’m not a day older) since that very first class at Bikram Yoga Takoma Park.  I remember an African proverb I learned as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Liberia that goes something like this, ‘the days go by like months, and the months like days.’  It has been quite a long journey for me that has included many ups and downs, but most of all it included a whole lot of love.  I am very proud to leave behind such a mark in the community and people’s lives.

“When in the course of human events….” all things must change.  And as with the Declaration of Independence, we are bringing in the new with fireworks!  You will see many exciting changes at Bikram Yoga Takoma Park but one thing won’t change....my love and affection for all of you who have been a part of the journey during BYTP’s first eight years!

I’ll continue to be around and you’ll be hearing from me from time to time about what my next (ad)venture(s) will be!  And, I'm sure I will be seeing you on the mat.

Love, Stephen

icon-student Welcome New Students



New to Bikram Yoga? Welcome and thanks for starting your practice at Bikram Yoga Takoma Park.  Here is the basic information you need to know to get started: no previous experience necessary, no flexibility needed, no appointment or reservation required.  Finish eating whatever you eat 2 – 3 hours before class starts. Hydrate well throughout the day. Classes start on time, so please arrive at least 15 minutes early.  Wear something cool as if you were going to the gym. The studio lobby opens 30 minutes before every class. We expect all yoga students to be in the yoga room before class starts.  Read here for detailed information on how to prepare for class and what to expect.






Bikram Yoga is a therapeutic 90-minute series of yoga postures that improves flexibility, strength, and balance of the body and improves mental clarity and focus.  It is practiced in a heated room (105 – 110 degrees) that warms the muscles and joints, improves circulation, detoxifies the body through sweat, and significantly reduces the risk of injury during stretching. Come join us for a class! We are open 7 days a week.  Read here for more information on Bikram Yoga.  We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and look forward to seeing you in the
studio soon.
