The 26 postures and two breathing exercises are well defined, systematic, and meticulously designed in such a way that makes the class suitable for all ages and levels of ability and agility. Each posture stretches and strengthens specific muscles, ligaments and joints needed for effective transition to the next posture. This method also stimulates the organs, glands and nerves, moving fresh oxygenated blood to 100 percent of the body, restoring all systems to a healthy working order. The 90 minute program can restore and/or deliver total health through the balancing and strengthening of every system in the body in order to prevent illness, injury and limit the negative effects of aging. In addition, the series of postures combine skills of concentration, patience, determination and self-control, which lead to increased mental clarity and reduced stress.

Why the heat?
There are many reasons. The heat helps flush out toxins, improves metabolism, dilates blood vessels to enable greater blood supply to all of your body. The heat also helps you stretch more safely, hydrates discs, helps increase heart rate, and makes you sweat to de-toxify. We have a beautifully maintained hot room with perfect conditions to better maximize your results.
As a newcomer, coming to as many classes as possible during your intro will help you adjust. Take it easy and take breaks as you need to start. The most important thing about your first class, is taking your second one within a day or two afterwards.
Paramahansa Yogananda

Paramahansa was the older brother and Guru of Bishnu Gosh, Bikram Choudhury’s direct Guru. He founded the Yogoda Satsanga Society of India, and wrote Autobiography of a Yogi, introducing many Westerners to the practice of Kriya Yoga, which uses various breathing techniques to accelerate spiritual development. In 1920, he moved to America and founded the Self-Realization Fellowship to extend his teachings of philosophy, yoga, and meditation.
