bikram hot yoga
The sequence of 26 postures was scientifically designed to systematically and progressively work every muscle, ligament, tendon and joint, moving fresh oxygenated blood around 100% of the body, into each and every organ and fiber, restoring all systems. Every posture prepares you for the next, and each proceeding posture gains from the previous one, resulting in incredible benefits that include improved posture, muscle & joint mobility, concentration, increased energy, and overall rejuvenation.

Why True Heat
The studio is heated to approximately 105°F/41°C (approximately 40% humidity) to help loosen the joints and improve the elasticity of the muscles, which allows for safer and deeper stretching. It also promotes sweating, resulting in an amazing detoxification.
Best of all it forces your mind to let go. Starting out this can be hard. Once you've learnt to empty the mind your whole mind / body connection becomes electrified. The heat enhances you mindfulness, transforming your ability to connect, listen & feel.
This is the reason why we maintain the true Bikram heat (We don't do warm yoga).
Most of the classes are 90 minutes long with few morning and lunch time classes 60 minutes long. The express class consists of the same Bikram 26 postures and two breathing exercises. Not all postures are repeated twice but those that are not are held for longer. Perfect for a quick fix on a busy morning or afternoon or to fit it within your lunch time break.
