Bikram Yoga Dallas (BYD) on Mockingbird in East Dallas is thinking up “new ways to sweat” in the coming new year.

Marking its 15th year in business, Bikram studios plans to offer condensed, 60-minute classes beginning in the New Year. The hour-long session will still include a compact version of its “magic formula of postures and sequence,” which BYD has become known for.

BYD has also launched a non-profit program called Positive Postures, which will be kicking off in January. The initiative will select one local charity per quarter as a partner, and it will be the recipient of 100 percent of the fee from the 6:30 p.m. Positive Postures class on the second Tuesday of each month at the West Village studio.

Sign up online or drop-in and try out a class for $25 (includes mat and towel). To learn more about BYD or these new programs, visit
