The traditional Bikram 60-min, 75-min, and 90-minute classes are suitable for all ages and levels of ability.
Each class consists of the original 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. Each posture is designed to stretch and strengthen specific muscles, ligaments and joints required for successive postures in the sequence. The 60-min and 75-min classes consist of the same postures as the 90-minute class practiced at an accelerated pace and condensed format. These are ideal for practitioners who have a busy schedule but would still like to achieve the maximum benefits in a shorter amount of time.
The Bikram yoga method stimulates the organs, glands and nerves, by moving fresh oxygenated blood to 100% of the body, restoring a natural balance to all of the body's systems. Flexibility, core-strength and balance are just some of the benefits that participants can achieve, not to mention the increased mental clarity and stress- reducing benefits that are byproducts of the Bikram method.
Bikram yoga is practiced in over 900 yoga schools worldwide and remains the most popular style of yoga offered on the globe.

Vinyasa Yoga is one of the country’s most popular forms of yoga. And what’s not to love? It’s sweaty, powerful, connected and can allow for a yogi to have a very deep and even spiritual experience.
During a Vinyasa class, expect to move, sometimes vigorously, from pose to pose. Whether the class is fast or slow, includes advanced poses, or is very alignment-oriented will depend on the individual teacher and the particular style in which he or she is trained, but each class will be quite challenging in its own right.
Some classes include some warm-up stretches at the beginning while others launch straight into standing poses.

Yin Yoga consists of a series of slower-paced poses held for longer periods of time – anywhere from 3 minutes to 10 minutes per pose. This class will complement your yang-like Vinyasa or Bikram practice by giving your body a chance to stretch in a new, highly effective way.
Yin Yoga applies moderate stress to the connective tissues (the tendons, fascia, and ligaments) with the aim of increasing circulation in these joints & improving flexibility. This class features minimal dialogue and relaxing music.
