HOT 60, 75, 90:
This signature class is 26 classic, therapeutic and strengthening postures performed in a precise order, in a room heated to approximately 105 degrees. The heated yoga room loosens your muscles and joints maximizing their stretching and strengthening capacity while preventing injury. As the heat loosens your body, your mind adjusts to the heat by eliciting a heightened state of focus – hence why we often refer to this yoga series as a moving meditation.
This class systematically works the entire body, toning your muscles, promoting weight loss, reducing stress and increasing your overall vitality. Incorporating strength, balance and flexibility, 26 Hot teaches students how each pose stimulates the mind and restores and shapes the body. All instructors for this class are Ghosh lineage trained. This class is ideal for the absolute beginner and still challenging for the seasoned athlete.
Barkan Hot Yoga:
This sequence includes vinyasas (flows) that are sprinkled with postures that you will recognize from a Bikram class. It is a more fast flowing class that will include the option for more intermediate versions of Bikram's beginning postures that you are familiar with. This class is for all levels.
This dynamic class gathers the best of all worlds and is designed to build strength, stability, transform your body to create strong lean muscle, evolve your flexibility, and develop new skills while increasing body awareness. Fusion combines aspects of toning and strengthening from fluid and constant movement through power Vinyasa yoga and works deep into the fascia to condition and cultivate flexibility and range of motion.
The spiral and functional lines of the body impact our ability for mobility. This slower paced flow class will also guide you through mobility exercises and stretches that will open up the body in a deep and therapeutic way to leave you feeling centered, energized, and well balanced.
Slow down and dive deep into a 60 minute FUSION FLOW that will take you out of your normal patterns and bring consciousness and mindfulness into your movements. This class will challenge you, relieve tension, leave you with gratitude and self love. Give yourself plenty of space to flow, awaken to the beauty around you, and have fun!

YOGA (VINYASA) FLOW:
The word "vinyasa" refers to the alignment of breath and movement. This relationship turns static asanas or poses into dynamic movements called "flow." The connection of the breath and movements, heats the body internally, builds strength in the breath and ultimately builds strength in the body. Flow classes are 60 or 75 mins which include a great combination of a brief meditation, energetic postures, long-holding stretches, and inversions. Room is heated between 90-95 degrees.
Yin yoga is a powerful practice which targets tendons, ligaments and fascia within the body. Each posture during a Yin yoga class is held for long periods of time to encourage the slow and safe opening of connective tissues, leaving the athlete with an overall feeling of lightness & spaciousness. A Yin yoga class is the perfect antidote to stress and a great counter balance to more active fitness regimens. The room is dimmed and not heated.
Yin yoga classes involve a relaxed practice of floor postures that are held from three to five minutes at a time. There are far fewer postures or asanas in the yin style of yoga as are found in more active styles of yoga.
This is also a great class for crosstrainer, lifters, runners and team sport athletes. Range of motion is the key!
