Dear Bikram Yoga Community:
It has come to my attention that some Bikram Yoga studios are offering 60-minute or 75-minute classes. We have received many unhappy complaints about these shorter classes from students, teachers and studio owners in our Community all over the world. I would like to reiterate that Bikram Yoga Beginning Series means 26 postures, 2 breathing excercises performed in minimum 105 degree Fahrenheit temperature and 38 percent humidity for 90 minutes. I am hereby asking all Bikram Yoga studios who are offering such shorter classes to stop within two weeks, otherwise I will be forced to seek all remedies available to stop these classes, including but not limited to legal action. BIKRAM YOGA CERTIFIED TEACHERS are only licensed to teach 90 minute classes at official affiliated studios. Teachers who are teaching at illegal, unaffiliated, copy cat studios or teaching shorter classes will have their Bikram Yoga teaching certification revoked and may face legal action for copyright violation.

Dear Students and Studio Owners,
I just spent some quality time with my niece Manali, in Kolkata. I told her she had the longest vacation in her life and that it is time for her to go back to work. So I said welcome back.
Manali is available to teach Bikram Yoga at any Bikram studio around the world and is capable of helping in the following areas:
- Prepare trainees for teacher training
- Help studio owners with their new studios as well as existing studio owners, from promoting the studio to assisting with marketing as well as social media.
Should you require Manali’s assistance and expertise, please contact her directly via email email@example.com
If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact me directly as well via email, firstname.lastname@example.org

Nobody is authorized to offer advance classes anywhere, in the USA and around the world. Bikram Teachers are not allowed to teach advance or charge for advance classes.
No studios are authorized or licensed to offer, advertise or charge for advance classes. Studio owners are only permitted to practice the advance class on their own.
My Dear Studio Owners,
If you are thinking of contacting Esak Garcia for any kind of seminars, lectures or anything whatsoever in a Bikram Yoga school, please e-mail me.
