Bikram Yoga Fremont Street is an awesome, professional, friendly, low key and appropriately hot spot to start or continue your Bikram Yoga practice. The teachers, the atmosphere, the amenities, the warm and friendly owner, and the "studio dog" Macy, are great!. The teachers are all adept, approachable and easy to ask for individual tips or feedback after class. I have yet to leave a class without some new and useful tip.There is also at least one very advanced teacher here who provide awesome inspiration. The amenities are very nice: clean, large dressing room with locked and unlocked storage, nice showers and bathrooms,, a big lobby with a water cooler and nice seating where folks can sit on their own or together. The studio has a wall of windows, with a window that even opens (!), humidifiers, two walls of mirrors and smells clean. This place has totally changed my misconception that Bikram would be too stiff and dogmatic for me. It’s serious enough, but there is also humor, warmth and friendliness, and it is easy to feel at home at this studio, and to know teachers and regulars by name. I also enjoy finding folks of all sizes, ages, and experience levels, not to mention, wardrobe choices, here. I have read some reviews of folks who have not liked Bikram, not liked being called by name. No one is here to torture or shame you. Bikram is a tough and excellent workout; it’s not for everyone. ,And, yes, teachers may call folks by name in class to give feedback and encouragement; that’s just how it’s done in Bikram land, it's not personal, or intended to embarrass. For me, the feedback provides invaluable information that helps me improve my practice and the encouragement is awesome. J. Micheal, the owner, is a friendly, caring character with a good sense of humor and a philanthropic heart. He can often be found in the lobby, and teaches class too. I like a business with an involved and present owner. You can see his touch in the shower signs reminding you to take a 2 minute shower "or feel guilty” and in the fun art and daily quote board. He runs one class a month that is a donation class for a non-profit. He has helped me continue to do Bikram,which is life saving for me, after a challenging life change would have made it financially impossible. I started doing Bikram because I could not find a groupon for non-Bikram yoga, so I bought one for Bikram. I am completely hooked, five months into it. Finding Bikram for me has been life changing, and I cannot get enough of it. Bikram on Fremont is my home away from home!

I have attended multiple Bikram Yoga studios in Portland and elsewhere. The majority of classes I have done are here at this studio. The heat is quite thorough, the studio is nice and the staff is friendly. The studio is on the second floor, so what's missing is a lot of street noise/ distraction from the room. The neighborhood is pretty quiet.

I love Bikram Yoga, and the Fremont St studio is my favorite Bikram studio in Portland. Michael, the new owner has made some great changes to the space. It's fresh, clean, and friendly! The quality of instruction here is top-notch! If you love hot yoga, or if you're looking for a way to see and feel improvements in your health, Bikram Yoga Fremont Street is the place to be.

For us working stiffs, it is very nice they have a 6 AM class every weekday. The instructors all are pretty helpful. They ride the line of being very motivational vs. overly militant with skill. The smell doesn't seem that bad to me, but then again, I am too busy suffering under the intense heat and humidity to notice. Can't say much about the facilities because I don't use them. I swoop in, get crushed by the hot yoga, and swoop out (feeling great.) If you want flowers, music, and dim lights yoga, (which is all great) this isn't the place for you (its Bikram.)

I went to Bikram's Yoga at 48th and Fremont today for my first Bikram Yoga experience. It was pretty crowded but I think this was due to it being their introductory class (where members bring a friend), which only happens once a month. I found the facilities welcoming, with showers, changing room and fresh fruit served afterward. As far as bad stuff I would say two things: One, the place stunk like holy hell! The fact that it was carpeted did not seem like a good idea to me. (To their credit they are planning to close the studio for cleaning and revamping soon.). Two, people were NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE if they were experiencing discomfort! There was a young girl who got up to leave at the end and the instructor totally made her return to her spot! I can understand wanting to keep the class from being disrupted by people coming in and out, but there was a strong push to get people to stay and participate for the full 90 minutes. To their credit they do encourage (a little) to kneel and rest if you cannot perform the postures, but I feel as if there is a little bit of ignorance towards those that are really having a hard time. Back to the plus side: The class was fairly excruciating due to my being out of shape, but I have to admit I feel AWESOME right now and haven't felt this good naturally in A LONG TIME! :) Also, I felt so good after the class that I signed up for a month of membership (right now you get 37 days) for $30 which I found reasonable. P.S. Look for a new studio opening up on Alberta soon!

I just noted some negative comments in some of the reviews and had to add my 2 cents. I have been in probably 20 Bikram studios while traveling over past three years, and feel the Fremont studio is a great experience for those who are serious about getting in shape. Certainly the various instructors have different "attitudes" which they convey, but the goal is getting you to do your best. For those who are inherently gifted with flexibility, it may be more stress than desired. I was a skeptic of this hot, exhausting form of exercise, but needed to do something which allowed me to continue an active lifestyle of skiing, rowing, and continuing to work as a surgeon. A rowing instructon on the East Coast checked me out and basically said I better do Yoga if I had any hope of being flexible. The Fremont studio has been a wonderful place to work out the kinks in my aging body, as well as many others who frequent the place.

They must heat this joint with soul coal--I felt so welcome here and the teachers are the real deal. No pretense or snobbery, just people coming together to take care of themselves and each other. Check-out Fremont Street for yourself, and feel good!
