The previously announced Bikram Yoga Durham will be opening at Golden Belt tomorrow.
Billed as "the original hot yoga," it's a workout in a 40-50% humidity, 105-degree room, with the heat intended to help protect muscles, detoxify the body, and drive demand for Gatorade sales. (We're kidding about that last bit. I think.)
The studio will be accessible via the eastern side of the Golden Belt complex off Belt St., according to the facility's owners and the folks at Downtown Durham Inc. who posted a video tour of the new space to their web site yesterday.
Whether you like your yoga hot or not, the 4,000 sq. ft. space will also feature a retail store with mats, workout outfits and the like.
