Classic Bikram – 90 min

The 26 postures and two breathing exercises combined with an intentionally heated studio are what make a Bikram Yoga class uniquely therapeutic and effective.

The heat helps to warm the muscles and increases circulation allowing students to more safely move into the postures. It also promotes sweating which helps to cleanse and detoxify. Our studio is kept at a comfortable 40C. which in just slightly higher than normal body temperature.

Each posture is performed twice allowing the student to explore their body on the first set and then try to go a bit deeper on the second set.

This class is challenging but accessible which makes it our first choice for beginners.

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a somewhat different practice to the more yang yoga styles we typically offer at Club Stretch. However, Yin yoga is a great compliment to any yang style yoga and serves to complete your yoga practice.

Yin consists of three principles Duration, Stillness and Intensity. Suitable for all levels of students, this practice of yoga requires students to be ready to get intimate with The Self, with feelings, sensations, and emotions. It requires calming and balancing to both mind and body, restoring deeper relaxation and ultimately allowing a better Yang practice. Incorporating both Yin and Yang Yoga will create a more well-rounded practice as well as a better-rounded version of yourself!
