CLASSES TAUGHT

Bikram Yoga

Bikram Yoga is a sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing excercises. It has been proved and experienced by many that these 26 postures + 2 Breathing exercises systematically work every part of the body, to give all the internal organs, all the veins, all the ligaments, and all the muscles everything they need to maintain optimum health and maximum function. Each component takes care of something different in the body, and yet they all work together synergistically, contributing to the success of every other one, and extending its benefits.

Tibetans

Tibetasn are described as the Fountain of Youth, The Tibetan Rites are a short series of easily accessible movements designed to leave you looking and feeling younger. Implementing these movements into your daily practice will help you feel stronger, leaner, and more alive in your Yoga practice.

Yin Yoga

A sequence of postures designed to compliment the movements of the Bikram Yoga series. Held for longer periods of time, this series will help you unwind while opening up hips, hamstrings, and lower back.
