Yoga at BYC
Bikram Hot Yoga (90/75mins, 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.
Wednesday evening Yin Yoga is candlelit
Hot Vinyasa Flow (60mins, 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.
Hot HIIT (Inferno Hot Pilates) (60 mins, room heated to 36°C): IHP is a challenging, full body, low impact, high intensity workout. It strengthens muscles and burns fat, all without the pounding of a high impact workout. It is designed for all fitness levels. This is not a classic Pilates class, it is a high intensity class based on pilates principles.
All our classes are open to all levels.
