Yoga is the family business for Schuyler and Ammie Ferguson. The couple met at a Bikram Yoga teacher training seminar in California in 2010, later married and had 2 beautiful babies, and now work and teach together in their studios, Bikram Manayunk and University City.
Bikram Yoga is a specialized sequence of yoga developed in the 1970s by Bikram Choudhury, which includes 26 yoga postures done in a 90-minute class practiced in a room heated to about 105 degrees and about 40 percent humidity -- "a healthy sweat," as Schuyler Ferguson said.
"At every studio, we all teach the same Bikram Yoga class," Ferguson said, making it a familiar and welcoming environment for anyone who's ever practiced the technique. There are many Bikram-certified teachers in the area, and several "hot yoga" studios, but theirs is the only official Bikram-licensed studio in Manayunk
