Rima instructs the following:
26 postures in a hot room
26+2 Music/Candlelight Class
Must be familiar with the 26+2 (Bikram Method Class) since there will be minimal instruction. During this special class we will practice with yoga/meditation music playing in the background and a soothing atmosphere so you can get more in touch with your own practice. This class is recommended to those who know the 26+ 2. Please arrive early to find a spot and so we can start on time.
