Hot vinyasa yoga is a flow based style that leads the body from one point to the next linking the movements of the body to the breath. Through the flow of breath and body, we draw the mind to stillness and create a meditative experience.

Power Yoga is a vigorous, physical approach to vinyasa-style yoga. Based off the ashtanga method, Power Yoga can be modified to be accessible to students of all fitness levels and abilities. Flow and steady holds are combined to strengthen both the cardiovascular system as well as the skeletomuscular system. Get ready to sweat!

Hot Vinyasa / Power Yoga

The bikram method of hot yoga is a series of 26 postures (asanas) and 2 breathing exercises (pranayamas) practiced in a room that is heated to 105 degrees. The sequence of asanas is designed to move the spine in all directions, thereby lubricating the joints between the vertebrae and increasing spinal health. The movements of the body create what we refer to as the tourniquet effect. This improves blood flow and over time increases endocrinal function, joint mobility, muscle strength and overall body wellness. This class is appropriate for all levels.

26&2 – Bikram Method

Yin yoga consists of long holds (2 to 5 minutes) done on the floor, that stretch and open the connective tissues of the body and allow space into the joints. Yin works to promote flexibility in areas often considered nonmalleable—the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. The energy pathways of the body known as Meridians are stimulated allowing the energy of the body to flow with freedom and ease. With longer holds, we create space to go deeply into the inner landscape of body and mind. Connect with your breath and physical body in a way that allows energy, intuition, creativity, presence, peace and freedom to move in and around your life.

In the Words of Our Members

“There is always time for balance and for hard work. There is always room to improve your physical and mental health. Bikram yoga is one of the best investments I have ever made in myself.”

“Now, I am content. I am more kind, I am more patient. I am part of a wonderful community. I am brave. Every day I seek out another piece of myself and am proud to share this practice with fellow yogis.”

“I felt good. Tired, but good. In fact, I felt better than I had in years. I had forgotten that it was actually possible to feel that good. Endorphins? Maybe, but whatever it was, I liked it.”

“The workout is amazing. You get cardio, strength, endurance, and flexibility, all in one routine. The heated room helps you sweat out all the nasty toxins that build up in your body. The instructor walks you patiently through each move, so you always know what to do. And, unlike those weight workouts at the gym, there’s very little muscle soreness and pain.”
