Pilates exercises provide strength and non-impact cardio work that nicely compliment your yoga practice. And … they are just 60 minutes long at 15 degrees COOLER than you are used to in Bikram class!

Our students have been enjoying the deep stretching provided by our Yin classes immensely. The next Yin classes will be held:

Tuesday, Sept. 6th, 12:15-1:15 pm
Tuesday, Sept. 27th, 12:15-1:15 pm

Yin classes are free to AutoPay and Annual members.

If you haven’t yet tried one of these classes, please don’t hesitate! Yin postures are all floor stretches (no standing work), and they are designed to promote greater flexibility. In this 1 hour class, beginner postures are held for long intervals to enable the deep, penetrating stretch of muscles, tissues and facia. Yin stretching is a great compliment to your Bikram practice, enhancing your flexibility in all postures.

New Time for Regular Nidra Classes: Every Wednesday at 12:15

Yoga Nidra — also known as “Yogic Sleep” or sleep with awareness — is an ancient practice that is rapidly becoming popular in the west. Its purpose is to induce complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation, and create a deep meditative state of consciousness. Yoga Nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining fully consciousness. The practice can be used to tune into your intuition, to set intentions, or to merely set the rest of the world aside for a while and sink into deep relaxation.

Yoga Nidra Details:

20-30 minutes long
Every Wednesday at 12:15
Room is “cooled” to about 85
Practitioners lay still on their backs (a mat is nice)
Sam leads us through the conscious sleep practice


Next Nidra Class is Aug. 31st, 12:15 – 12:45
