"Core 26" is our basic "26 Postures" class modeled after the Bikram Yoga sequence. It combines standing postures for the first 45-50 minutes, and floor postures for the remainder of the class. The room is heated to 100-104 degrees, with plenty of humidity. The heat is helpful in allowing the body to go deeper into the postures safely by increasing the elasticity of the muscles, ligaments, tendons, allowing greater flexibility with a lower risk of injury. The heat also facilitates sweating and detoxification through the pores and skin - the body's largest eliminating organ. The heat also greatly increases the challenge to the cardiovascular system, allowing for a challenging workout and greater fitness levels to be achieved. Finally, the intensity of the heat deepens the need for concentration and focus, strengthening the student's willpower and self-control both in the classroom and beyond. The postures are beginner friendly, and it is ideal for all levels of practice. The combination of this sequence with the heat is a perfect blend for your body to heal, reset, recharge, and gain strength and flexibility. This class can help improve immunity, detoxify the muscles, lungs and organs, regulate and maintain healthy weight, and help prevent injury, arthritis and pain. The self-control and focus developed in the consistent practice will be transferred to all areas of one's life to improve overall mental and physical health,

"Restorative Yoga" Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. During the long holds of restorative yoga, your muscles are allowed to relax deeply. It's a unique feeling because props, rather than your muscles, are used to support your body. Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices (as well as our busy lives) and an excellent antidote to stress. Stillness is a powerful practice. Clinical research into restorative yoga has found that it can decrease depression in cancer survivors; improve symptoms of anxiety, depression, and pain symptoms in cancer patients; and help patients manage the toxicity of cancer treatments
