Bikram Yoga Series – 60 and 90 Minute Classes
The Bikram series is the single best form of yoga to achieve and maintain optimal health, a sharp mind and your ideal body.
The Bikram series is an intelligently designed sequence of 26 postures (asanas), practiced for 60 or 90 minutes in a hot room. The increased room temperature aids in warming the muscles and increasing the flexibility of the body tissues, allowing for deeper stretching and helping to prevent injury. Toxins are released through the breath and skin by sweating. The end result is an unparalleled feeling of mental and physical well-being and relaxation.
The Bikram series is the best way to lose weight and get in shape for people of all ages and abilities, especially beginners. You can burn 600 to 1,000 calories per class at Hot Yoga 101, depending your work rate.
The Bikram Series works 100% of your entire body, from the inside out. The series of stretches and compressions exercise your muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, organs, nerves and glands. Upon release of a posture, fresh oxygenated blood travels through and rejuvenates the vessels and tissues that were being compressed.
The Bikram series is an effective lifestyle component for losing weight and increasing your overall health and well-being. It is also effective in rehabilitating old injuries and complementing peak performance training.
Warm Hatha Class
The warm hatha yoga class is designed for those who are new to yoga. This 60 minute class consists of 26 postures (1 set each) practiced at a slower pace and in warm room to provide a safe environment to stretch, strengthen and tone muscles.
