This is a 60 minute low impact, fun class! We use Pilates Principles along with (HIIT- High Intensity Interval Training) to sculpt your body, create long lean muscle mass and build stronger core strength. YES, it is a perfect compliment to your Bikram Yoga! Beginner's Welcome.
Yin yoga is a quiet and simple practice, but not necessarily an easy practice. You hold gentle postures for longer periods of time targeting the deeper tissues of the body, our connective tissues — ligaments, joints, bones and deep fascia rather than the muscles. This class is practiced in a warm room (not hot) with low lighting and it is totally chill! Everyone welcome.
If you have a yoga mat, bring it, along with a large bath towel and drinking water. We also have these items available for you to rent, and water to purchase at the studio.
Remember, everyone had their very first Bikram Yoga class, even the people on the front row who have been coming for years. They make it look easy because they persevered, and you can too. What you may not realize yet, EVERYONE here is rooting for you! Seriously!
To get somewhere you've never been before you have to do something you've never done before. Take the first step!
How long have you been practicing? I've been practicing regularly for 9 years. But I took my first class 18 years ago!
What brought you through the front door? Why did you keep coming back? A friend invited me to a Bikram Yoga class when I was living in Portland, Oregon in the early 2000s. I remember that I couldn’t stop laughing during the first breathing exercise because all these people were standing around in spandex making loud breath sounds and taking themselves very seriously. Though I wasn’t quite ready to embark upon a regular practice at that time, the focus of the instruction, the group setting, and the challenge of the environment made a positive impression on me, and I sought out Bikram Yoga classes many years later when I moved back to Cape Cod and was looking for a complement to running. I was ready to fully embrace being a spandex wearing loud breath sounds person! I keep coming back for the opportunity to have fun, learn, explore, fail, and try new things.
Have you noticed any changes in your life as a result of your practice? How do you feel? As a long-time practitioner, feeling great is my new normal! I notice that when I *don’t* get to practice for whatever reason (usually due to travel), I have less energy, I don’t sleep as well, parts of my body may get stiff or sore, and I am more anxious, irritable, and reactive.
What's your favorite posture? Why?Final Savasana. It’s where it all comes together. I once heard someone describe the posture in the following way: you wouldn’t find a cake recipe and take all the time and care to get ingredients, prep them, mix everything in the right proportions, and then be like “okay I’m done” and not bake the cake. Final Savasana is like baking the cake. You’ve done all this work for the better part of 90 minutes to breathe, stretch, and cultivate a mind/body connection. Final Savasana is a time to integrate everything that has just happened in your practice and let the body soak it in. Don’t short change yourself by running out of the room right away. Don’t be an unbaked cake!
Bikram Yoga has taught me...The body is a source of wisdom and information. By learning to pay attention to your thoughts and noticing what your body is doing, you can get a lot of information. Maybe you start to learn something about yourself and some new possibilities and choices open up in terms of how you move and think.
Outside of the studio, you can find me...what are your hobbies? Interests?Outside of the studio you can find me communing with nature, snugging my dog, and laughing with my husband. And taking baths. Lots of baths. I’m an expert at baths. Also, doing crosswords and bird watching. I’m pretty exciting.
After class must have?
