The traditional Bikram 90 minute class and the 60 Minute Express Class are suitable for all ages and level of ability.
Bikram Yoga Express
The 60-Minute Express class consists of the same 26 postures as the Traditional Bikram Yoga class which are held for the same amount of time, however this sequence consists of only one set of most of the postures.
Power Vinyasa (Flow) Yoga
Power Yoga will move you through a series of core-building postures using the calming strength of breathe. Typically, classes will include Sun Salutations, Back Bends and Twists, and a core-strengthening series – each posture flows from one into the other.
Yin/Deep Stretch Yoga
Yin Yoga consists of a series of slower-paced poses held for longer periods of time – anywhere from 3 minutes to 10 minutes per pose. This class will compliment your regular Bikram practice by giving your body a chance to stretch in a new way.
Hatha - Warm
Hatha is a combination of the traditional Bikram and the Power Vinyasa class in that you practice the foundation of postures used in the Power Vinyasa class, but you hold the asanas (postures) for longer - focussing on alignment, stillness, and breath. In this class, you will expect joint mobility and preparation while maintaining a deep connection to your breath.
