Yoga has been around for thousands of years, as a relaxing exercise for the mind and body. Recently a newer form of yoga has been gaining in popularity, Bikram Yoga. For those who do not know, Bikram Yoga, also known as hot yoga usually consists of a 90 minute session in a 105 degree room!
As hard as the heat may be on the participants, it is even harder on the flooring. That is why PEM Surface Creations has become a leader in providing flooring for many Bikram Yoga studios.
Because of the humidity and perspiration associated with the high temperature studios, not every flooring can withstand the wear and tear of regular use under these extreme conditions. Surpassing the requirements in such an environment, PEM is resistant to environmental and chemical degradation, withstanding temperatures of up to 180 degrees, making it a perfect fit for hot yoga studios.
The flooring is easy to install and easy to maintain and clean between yoga sessions. The flooring contains an antimicrobial biocide protecting against the growth of mildew, fungi and bacteria.
PEM’s textured surface and soft construction provides padding for points of harmful contact and comfort to bare feet. And because slips and falls are concern at Bikram Yoga studios, the flooring reduces slippage, lessening the chance of injuries during a yoga session.
PEM Surface Creations has already supplied flooring to Bikram Yoga studios all over the world, including Hot 8 and Red Hot, a few of the largest studios in “Bikram Capital” Santa Monica, California.
