90 minutes seems like a long time, but this workout is worth it!!! It’s like giving all your organs, muscles and lungs an internal massage!
Marina is VERY helpful and encouraging. Be sure to advise of all issues you may have because after one class I feel a difference in my lower back. Can’t wait to continue and see the progress my body will have!
After 9/11, my husband sought something enlightening and tried Bikram Yoga. Knowing nothing about different yoga styles, he only picked Bikram Yoga because it was listed first in the Yellow Pages. I thought he was crazy when he described the postures and the heat. But after a few months of listening to his enthusiasm and…
I am visiting from MA and my local friend asked to do a bikram class (her first) and took the class with Marina. The studio smells of heavenly sage when you first walk in. We were given a tour, the studio is beautiful. There are no rugs in the yoga room. What a great idea!…
I’ve been to a few studios in Sarasota, and I have finally found my home at Thavma! I’ve been a student here since they opened and I’ve always felt welcomed and encouraged. All of the instructors are uplifting and caring. Whether it is your first time trying bikram, or you’re a pro– I wouldn’t suggest…

During & After Class
The classes are a demanding series of Hatha yoga postures suited for both beginners and more experienced students. The room is heated between 95 degrees and 104 degrees depending on the class. Each class is 60-90 minutes in duration.
The first 15 – 30 minutes after class is the most crucial time to recover. Take it easy and drink plenty of water. Come back to your next class within 24-48 hours.
Thavma is a combination of the first letters of our names Thano and Marina . The –V- with the flame in the center, stands for Vikrum in Sanskrit which is for Victory. The Flame, on the top symbolizing the heat we use at the Thavma Yoga studio.
In Greek, Thavma means; “miracle”, and its exactly what I have experienced after doing 20 years of Hatha yoga. After walking out of a Thavma Yoga class, a true victory is accomplished and miracles begin to happen.
It is our intention to provide a space that nurtures and supports you on your journey of life changing experiences and good health.
