Fuel Hot Yoga + Inferno Pilates - Glenview, IL

Bikram Yoga North Shore - Glenview, ILDid you know that many yoga studios and gyms offer hot yoga classes, but none of them are Bikram Yoga.  If you would like to try Bikram (and become hooked like I have) than you should seek out a  Bikram Yoga studio. And luckily for us, there is a studio in Glenview IL which opened in the summer of 2012.

Sisters Heidi Bernover and Holly McGregor have been practicing Bikram since 2005/06. They decided to leave their careers behind (Heidi as a financial planner and Holly in advertising) to become certified Bikram instructors a few years later.  Training is an arduous 9-week session with the still-living Bikram Choudhury that all instructors must complete.  

They chose Glenview for two reasons:  because there were no Bikram studios between Evanston and Milwaukee and they felt it was a good central location. They also grew up in Northfield and wanted to give back to the area that they knew and loved.

Bikram is a very specific type of yoga practiced in a room heated to 105 degrees and 40% humidity.  There are 26 poses, done twice, and performed in the same, specific order each time over a 90 minute period.  The reason? By completing the class, you will have systematically worked all  your muscles, joints, tendons, glands, circulatory system and also improved your balance and strength. There are seven reasons for the heat and humidity but the two most important are for detoxification (sweating) and helping the body be more malleable.  Bikram says "you can't bend cold steel."

And after cooling down you walk out of the studio feeling physically and mentally refreshed and reinvigorated.

Fuel Yoga and Pilates GlenviewIn 2018, Bikram Yoga changed its name to Fuel. The change came about because a more varied course schedule was introduced that included 1 hour Bikram class as well as Inferno Pilates.
The Inferno Pilates classes are 60-minutes  and guaranteeed to work every single muscle of your body.  There are classes with or without weights. The heat is on but much lower than the Bikram yoga class.   
The hot pilates classes have become very popular. One of these workouts Interno hot pilates(I've only done one without weights) will also work every muscle of your body. Even though I work out in a gym, I still felt the effects of this class!
And for the 4th year in a row, Bikram Yoga North Shore received the Best of 2016: Fitness from Make it Better! 

Give Fuel a try - either Bikram Yoga or Pilates - or as some people do - both!

Insider Information:   
  • Classes start promptly and doors close 2 minutes before class begins 
  • Bring large towels along with your yoga mat - they are mandatory.  They are offered for rent if you don't have them.
  • Please remain quiet in class - no fidgeting or talking
  • Wear light clothing
  • Try not to eat for 3 hours before class
  • New students should arrive 20 minutes before class time

  • Hydrate your body - my routine is to drink 8 oz. of water one hour before class and then another 8 oz. 30 minutes before.  Do what works for you.

Margaret, I too fell in love with Bikram!  Lucky for me we have a studio in S. Naperville.  Always good to know where there are other studios!  Went to Playa del Carmen in Mexico and even found one there...but it was so hot...I just decided to try a different type of yoga and found an instructor who came to my vacation villa and we did the sessions facing the sea!  Thanks for sharing!

Margaret, any kind of yoga is incredibly good for the body soul and spirit! I took it up when in '92, I had a surgeon tell me he would perform surgery on my neck, cut/fuse, lose mobility, yadayada. NO WAY!!! I took up yoga instead. Still haven't had that surgery. 

I use videos (yes, VIDEOS, still!!) from a yoga instructor who used to be on public television for years. One of the things she always says, is if it HURTS, don't do it. Protecting knees, elbows, necks, she was so kind about her instruction. She is now like an old friend that I look forward to seeing when I do my yoga.

Deb - it really is!

Ronald - you're welcome

Sarah - it's the hardest workout I've ever done!

Joanna - helps shed pounds too

Evelyn - it is incredibly hot, but the more you do it, the less hot it feels.  I would love to do yoga someday outside facing the ocean . . .

Judi- it's only been around since the 1970s although it's all yoga poses

Gayle - I used to have these knots in my neck all the time and they are completely gone after doing yoga for several years.  I know there are some online sites that have yoga classes and I've been meaning to give it a try

I love yoga too. Actually I don't have preferences.

An hour of yoga practice is the best anti-stress you can find for your body and mind. Yoga reveals intelligence and beauty that lies withing us.

Inna Ivchenko - I know people who have given up all other forms of exercise to do just yoga.  It's a great anti-stress form of exercise.

Yoga is a beautiful practice and you do need to be flexible( even it is beneficial for any body) to practice yoga:)
