Bikram Brickell, located at 90 SW 8th Street touts itself as Miami’s largest Bikram yoga studio setting out to detox and purify individual’s bodies from the core-out allowing the heat to soften for the metamorphosis of the body. As the only studio in Miami that offers Spanish classes, the studio promotes yogis’ body flexibility in their 105 degree luxurious and relaxing yoga rooms. Designed by Nacho Garcia Vinuesa the studio is set up to make students feel as if in their own home. Swaying away from the traditional studio, Bikram Brickell houses eight private dressing rooms and showers to boot.
The opening festivities kick off with the founder of Bikram Yoga, Guru Bikram Choudry performing a traditional Indian lamp lighting ceremony symbolizing luck on Saturday night. The evening then moves from the studio to Dolores but you can call me Lolita for a reception hosted by the yoga studio owner Nacho Cano from the Spanish band Mecano. Mayor Tomas Regalado will make an appear and present a key to the city to Bikram Choudry. Choudry has also donated his classic Rolls-Royce, once belonging to Gypsy Rose Lee, to a special auction with all proceeds benefiting earthquake relief in Japan. The VIP party goers will get to bid on a new pair of wheels and dance up a sweat to DJ A-ROG or practice their flamenco moves to a live flamenco guitarist scheduled to perform that evening.
