Bikram Hot Yoga (90mins, room heated to 40°C): The classic Bikram series: a fun and challenging 26 posture series performed in a heated room. Bikram Yoga is a series of Hatha Yoga postures, suitable for new and advanced practitioners alike. There are unlimited benefits to practising Bikram Yoga. It has helped countless people with old injuries. It helps improve posture, lose weight, tone up, and achieve better balance and focus. During class you will work every single muscle, gland and organ in your body. The twenty six postures systematically move oxygenated blood to one hundred percent of the body (including each organ), restoring all systems to healthy working order, just as nature intended!
Each posture stretches, strengthens and prepares specific muscles, ligaments and joints needed for the next posture.
Yin Yoga (75mins, not heated): Yin Yoga is a slow, mediative style of yoga practised mainly on the floor. Postures are held for several minutes at a time, so practitioners can access the deep connective tissues of the body. It is a gentle, deep form of yoga, which can be a beautiful compliment to your hot yoga practise or stand alone practise.
Sunday Yin Yoga (90 min class, not heated) 75 min Yin ending in a 15 min guided yoga nidra mediation. Yoga Nidra, also known as yoga sleep, is a form of guided meditation. The practitioner simply lies back, allowing themselves to be gently guided to a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, enabling the body to deeply relax.
Hot Vinyasa Flow (75mins, room heated to 36°C): A constantly moving & flowing sequence of postures that change class to class, including downward dogs, sun salutations & arm balancing postures to focus on the upper body, as well as core & leg strength. Like Hot Bikram Yoga it is an all round body/mind workout.

“Not only has Bikram yoga healed this ( climbers/ tennis elbow) and endless other injuries, it has provided me with a sense of well-being and new direction in life. Just get in the room! I promise you won’t regret it. And, if there is one thing I could say to all of you new Bikram yogis/inis, it would be: make the most of your introductory offer, come as much as you can, and the rewards will be endless."
“I feel calm, focused and have developed an inner strength, which I did not believe I would ever regain. My confidence has returned and I feel that, at last, this is the real me – Mind, Body and Soul. Bikram has brought a calmness and inner strength into my life and has also helped me with my preparation for the major spine surgery, due in September."
“ I came to BYC for the first time just over a year ago and have been coming regularly since. It has had a profound affect on me and my life. I am no longer suffering with my sinus problems and breathing.... I am no longer suffering with sciatica like I was when I first came. The classes have helped my sciatic nerve to slowly recover and I have had a lot of support and guidance from the amazing teachers... Overall Bikram Yoga has had a phenomenal affect on me mentally. I have more peace of mind and I’ve developed emotional stability. I feel happy, content, free and physically my body has changed dramatically"
"I’m definitely not the cheesy sales person who will say something just for effect, but if my experience can help even one person, I’ll be happy. After only 3 months of Bikram, the results are just incredible."
“Bikram yoga has been a fantastic tool in my training and competition, allowing me to be at my best and compete against the best. I strongly recommend Bikram yoga to all runners as an excellent cross-training and recovery tool. I will certainly never be without Bikram yoga in my life, even after I hang up my running shoes and retire from international athletics."
