True Bikram Yoga provides a clean and safe environment for you to get maximum benefits from a regular Bikram Yoga practice. Your mat and towel is always complimentary the first time you come to True. If you do our Introductory Month your mat rental is included for the month at both locations. After the first day, towels are $2 to rent or you’re welcome to bring your own.

True Membership gives you total access to both studios and the full schedule of Bikram Classes as well as discounts on other class types we offer and other special discounts on events and products.

Membership at True comes with the following packages:
6 month autopay
6 month unlimited
Annual package

Amenities: Both locations have showers (stocked with shampoo/conditioner and body wash) and changing rooms. We sell our delicious fresh pressed juices at both locations. The New Haven location has lockers and locks available to borrow with an ID. Madison has extended services including Zumba classes, waxing, facials, massage services, childcare for select classes and event space for your next meeting or seminar.

Lost and Found: We are not responsible for your personal articles while you are in the studio but we do our best to reunite people with their left items. We will only hold articles in lost and found for a couple of months and then we will donate them to charity. People who forget their yoga clothes will sometimes ask to borrow something from lost and found. We are happy to do that but there is a $4 charge for this service as we have to wash every article before returning it to lost and found.

New Haven Entrance: The True Bikram studio is located in the lower level of 59 Elm Street, New Haven, CT 06510. (Corner of Elm and Orange Streets) Tel 203-785-0844.

THE APP
There are two apps that make parking downtown in New Haven a little easier. You can extend the time on your meter from your smartphone and enjoy your time in the yoga studio with less stress.
"Park Mobile" http://us.parkmobile.com/

THE TECHNIQUE
Put coins in the meter when you park, take a photo with your phone of the badge on the meter and then set a timer on your phone for however much time is on the meter (minus a few minutes in case you want a heads up with enough time to return to your car). With an iPhone and Siri it’s easy, just press and hold the home button and say “set a timer for 1hr 55mins”. Then when the timer ends you can decide if you want to extend the session with the ParkMobile app or high tail it back to your car.Bikram New Haven Entrance
