YO BIKRAM 90 and YO BIKRAM
Bikram is the original hot yoga. The practice is an unchanging sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. We offer 60 minute and 90 minute classes in 40°c heat. The practice was designed as a rejuvenating exercise to strengthen the entire body from head to toe. The organs, glands and nerves are stimulated and the heat allows for the release of toxins through sweating. The muscles, ligaments and joints are also able to stretch much deeper than normal, without the risk of injury. All of the 26 postures have incredible benefits for the spine.
Yo Fit is a goal orientated practice that incorporates intervals of high intensity exercises combined with yoga recovery poses to increase cardiovascular fitness, full body strength, muscle toning and overall body mobility, alignment and balance. It is a body resistance based training practice done in 32 degree heat and is suitable for people of all shapes and sizes, all fitness levels and pretty much anyone who wants to get fit, flexible and strong.
Flow yoga is a dynamic and playful practice, with the studio heated to a fairly hot 36°c. The flow practice is primarily identified by breath-synchronized movement. Strongly influenced by Ashtanga and power yoga, the practice of flow yoga has become one of the most popular practices in the west and is an intense, full body workout. Each flow class will be slightly different to the next, depending on who is instructing, what music is played and what the instructor offers on the day.
Yo Recovery is a non-heated class in which the body and mind is invited to deeply relax through postures that open and release. As in all yoga practice, breath is key as we extend our exhales to further encourage the capacity of the whole body-mind system to tune in and be present with the sensations that arise. Through its explorative nature, this class will support the body through any activity from intense sport to walking.
