Bikram Yoga Capital Area (BYCA), located in East
Lansing, is mid-Michigan's first and only authentic Bikram Yoga studio. BYCA is a 100% locally-owned and operated small business, affiliated with and approved by Bikram Yoga Headquarters in Los Angeles,
California. The owner was trained by Bikram and Rajashree Choudhury, Emmy Cleaves, and Craig Villani in 2004.
Bikram Yoga is The Original Hot Yoga! Many studios around the world have tried to replicate, approximate, or improve upon it, but the same deep, therapeutic, life-changing benefits simply cannot be achieved without the exact sequence of postures, the professionally certified teachers, and the ideal environmental conditions (heat, humidity, fresh air circulation).
Our core values are Safety, Accessibility, Inclusiveness/Non-Discrimination, and Professionalism.
BYCA's mission is to bring the highest-quality hatha yoga experience - in a beautiful, spa-like, state-of-the-art studio - to everyone in the Greater Lansing area who is interested and dedicated. Our facilities include showers in both locker rooms; custom wood carpentry; and a practice room equipped with excellent fresh-air circulation, a powerful humidifier, and a furnace capable of heating the room to the ideal practice temperature and humidity!
All of our teachers are highly experienced in the Bikram Yoga series and have been trained personally by Bikram Choudhury and his senior staff of teacher trainers at the 9-week, full-time, international teacher training program.

All classes are designed for beginners of all ages, with no prior yoga or fitness background required. Many students begin this practice in their 60s, and more men practice Bikram Yoga than any other style. Please join us.
