Bikram Yoga Classes


Bikram Beginners Yoga Series
90 minutes (105°/40%)
All Levels

is a system of yoga that Bikram Choudhury synthesized from traditional hatha yoga techniques and popularized beginning in the early 1970s. Classes run exactly 90 minutes and consist of a set series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises, and is ideally practiced in a room heated to 105°F (≈ 40.6°C) with a humidity of 40%.

Practicing the twenty-six postures you will systematically move fresh, oxygenated blood to one hundred percent of your body, to each organ and fiber, helping to restore all systems to healthy working order, just as nature intended.  Proper weight, muscle tone, vibrant good health, and a sense of well being will automatically follow.

Individual weight loss results will vary depending on frequency of your practice and your calorie intake.

BENEFITS OF CHAIR YOGA

Intro to Trapeze Yoga (75-80°)

Benefits are:

1. Glowing skin.. flush nutrients & oxygen to face and hair follicles of the scalp, giving you a natural ‘face lift’ and healthy glow.
2. Natural anti-depressant.. flushes adrenal glands stimulating the release of endorphins making you feel uplifted.
3. Aids digestion. When you invert, it allows gravity to work in a way that gets things moving along.
4. Improve Immunity.. Inversions help stimulate lymphatic cleansing and drainage, clearing toxins from tissues.
5. Promotes sounder sleep… studies have proven that EMG activity, (a measure of muscle tension) declines by 35% within 10 seconds of inverting. Muscle tension can contribute to feelings of anxiety & insomnia.

Yoga mats required.

Individual results will vary.
