Bikram Yoga is a complete system of wellness, restoration and rejuvenation. Bringing Bikram yoga into your life cleanses the body and calms the mind. The studio is HOT (over 100 degrees) to facilitate deeper stretching, prevent injury, relieve stress and tension and to detoxify the body. Bikram yoga was designed to systematically stimulate and restore health to every muscle, joint and organ of the body. Participants are guided through a series of 26 postures, each increasing in physical challenge. Participants of all ages notice an increase in energy, strength, balance, flexibility and mental focus. The body is flushed of toxins, leaving a deep sense of relaxation and well-being
Yoga is for everybody. Yoga is not about how flexible you are. It is about stretching your body and spine in all directions. All that matters is that you try the right way, go to your personal ‘edge’ and you will get 100% of the benefit. What you get from a yoga class is what you put into it. No matter how old or sick or out of shape, you can still stretch and have a new beginning with yoga. It’s never too late.

E84 Intermediate Yoga
E84 Intermediate class
The intermediate class is a hot 90 minute class that builds on the foundation created by Bikram’s Beginner Class. In this class we will begin to introduce new ideas and develop body parts for postures that require skills like arm balancing, leg over the head, deep backbends and lotus. No advanced skills are needed to participate in this class, but comfort practicing a Bikram class and a desire to expand are essential. Structured by Esak Garcia, this class prepares students for the more complex 84 posture class, from which Bikram yoga was derived.
The class contains one set of all the beginner series postures you already know but we expand further from this into new postures and variations. Each class will have a slightly different focus in terms of the skills and body parts we are working with. By developing awareness of your postures and parts of your body you will get some new ideas to take back to your Bikram practice as well. The parts of class with which you are familiar will move more quickly, with less instruction than a beginner’s class; whereas new ideas will be taught more thoroughly with a chance to ask questions.
