Bikram Yoga Vancouver is announcing the most exciting thing to happen to summer time since the invention of the beach. Starting on June 1, we’re going to be holding the yoga challenge of all yoga challenges! Sure, you’ve seen 30 day challenges before where you practice everyday, take a couple pictures and get your name pasted on the wall, but we realize that not only is this a little boring, but it just doesn’t work with everyone’s schedules, let alone the way that they like to practice yoga. We know that our yogis are often not just committed to the hot room, but that they’re also committed to their other fitness routines, their families and frankly, during the summer months, they’re committed having as much fun in the sun as possible!
So we came up with a different formula for a yoga challenge. The BYV Summer Showdown is 92 days of getting fit, pushing your boundaries and getting the best darn deal on a yoga package that we’ve offered in well, forever! Running from June 1 to August 31, you’ll get the chance to CHOOSE YOUR DESTINY (insert ominous voice of all-powerful God here)!! This means that you pick the number of classes that you want to complete over the summer, we track your progress and help you with any challenges that you may run into, and when the summer is over (sad face) and you’ve completed all your classes, we enter you into a draw for some kick butt awesome prizes! Not only that, you’ll be feeling amazing because you amped up your practice, you conquered the hot room and you look incredible!
“Sign me up, already!!” you say? Well just wait a gosh darn second there buster, let’s make sure you understand just how this party is gonna go down.
Q: What’s all this destiny stuff that you keep talking about?
Four different destinies await you in the Summer Showdown. Each of these are different challenge packages with a different number of classes that will start on June 1 and expire on Aug 31.
Q: Ok… So which destiny is right for me?
Here’s each of the different destinies, take a read, learn a little bit about the different paths and sign up right here as well!

- Super Power: The Super Sweet Sword of Strength!
- How often do I need to practice: 4-5x/week

Q: So how does the contest work?
The premise is pretty simple. Once you sign up to a certain destiny, you have the entire summer to reach your quota. Once September 1 rolls around, we’ll make sure that you completed the given number of classes that you signed up for and enter you into the draw the number of times that you practiced. That’s right, the bigger the challenge, the better your chances of winning.
So, if you choose to practice 15 and complete all 15 classes, you get entered into the draw 15 times! If you choose to practice 60 and complete 60, you get 60 entries. That’s gonna make it a heck of a lot easier to walk away with some gear.
Q: Ok, enough already, tell me about the prizes!!!
So far, we’ve got the following prizes lined up and are working on getting even more gear to throw in the mix. We’ll keep you updated to any new prizes!
- 1 Year Unlimited at BYV (value: $1190)
- IPAD Mini ($329)
- BYV Flex Passes ($199-$299)
- Tickets to BYV Posture Clinics ($40/each)
- Yoga Gear from Onzie, Yogitoes, Traumeel & more!
Q: But I’m already have a package, can I still participate? Because I want my share of those prizes!!
No problem! We want as many people as possible to participate. And don’t worry about losing time on your package because for everyone that participates, we’ll extend your expiry for the three months that you’re challenging yourself (excluding autopays). When you finish your challenge you’ll just go right back onto the package that you’re currently using.
Q: I’m on the AutoPay program, how can I participate?
If you’re on the AutoPay program with us, we’d still love to have you take part in the program. You won’t be charged any extra fees, just let us know which of the different challenges that you’d like to aim for and we’ll keep track of all your visits between June 1 and August 31 and enter you in the contest once the end of the summer rolls around!
Q: I heard I get a free posture clinic with Lisa P. when I sign up for the Summer Showdown. How does that work?
We’ll be getting in touch with everyone after the challenge through email, so make sure we have your current address on file! We will be holding a few clinics that are especially reserved just for participants in the Summer Showdown. These clinics will be first come, first served so make sure to keep an eye out in your inbox for this email to come in the first few weeks of June.
Q: What if I don’t complete my challenge (which is totally never going to happen, jeez), do I still get entered into the contest?
No way Jose! What would be the fun in that, it’s called a challenge for a reason, silly!
Q: I’m dying to start practicing today!! Can I start on my challenge before June 1!
You sure can! We will be letting participants start as early as Wednesday, May 22. Just purchase your package and let the desk staff know that you want to get in on the fun and get a head start!
Q: Alright I’m ready… Well, not quite yet. I’m super nosy actually and I’m dying to know if any of the teachers or staff are going to be pushing their limits with me!
Well alright little mister and miss nosy, don’t you worry your little head. We’ve got a ton of staff that are already signed up and ready to go (there’s even rumours of team t-shirts being made). Here are some of the staff members that are already on board:
