Barbara Timmins instructs the following:
There are many Hot Yoga styles out there, from Bikram to Moksha Yoga to an class on the beach in Costa Rica at the height of summer! In true dynamic style our Hot Yoga classes are derived from diverse disciplines including but never limited to: YYoga & the Tapasya Hot Series, Bikram, Anusara & Hatha Yoga. The poses in our hot classes along with specific alignment and timing principles are designed to enhance strength, flexibility and balance both physically and mentally. The hot room facilitates deeper, safer stretching while your detoxifying sweat helps flush impurities from the body. The practice is strong and empowering, allowing you to tap into your own internal fire and determination.
A low impact class designed to break down how the body moves. Infusing yoga, Pilates, and conditioning exercises into one easy to follow format. This heated class will help you to develop a greater understanding of your center, or core, and how to stretch and tone muscles at the same time. Suitable for beginners to advanced.
A heated class but with a quicker pace and a stronger flow you will still sweat! Bring a towel and water and be prepared to move for 60 minutes. This class can be challenging due to the fast pace therefore probably not best suited for those brand new to yoga. It is fun and easy going, be prepared to challenge your strength and balance and remember it is all right to fall, we all do.
