This Power/Vinyasa is a powerful, energetic practice where students fluidly move from one pose to the next. It is a vigorous and revitalizing challenge in intensity and pace. This class uses breath as the primary link between alternating poses and mind-body connection. We call this breath Ujjayi. Build strength, increase endurance, release tension and create more flexibility in the entire body. Class duration 60 min. (approx. 98-100 degrees with approx. 40%-50% humidity).
This class is a great starting point for any beginning yogi. This class is a sequence of postures that move more deeply, slowly and mindfully, which allows for the same sequence every time (formerly called Hot Fusion). This allows you time to find proper alignment and sink deeper into each asana. You will gain flexibility, balance, strength and mental focus. You will also get a little bit of practice flowing as you layer the postures together in breath to movement. There are little to no vinyasa in this class, so your wrists get a break from Chaturangas. Class duration 60 min. (approx. 98-102 degrees with approx. 40%-50% humidity.

Our heated classes are 90-98 degrees. In addition, we have Infrared Radiant Heating Panels, which are safer and healthier than traditional forms of heat as they do not make any noise, rely on fossil fuels, or blow around dust and allergens. Our state of the art humidification system is always set to 40% to 60% humidity. The relative humidity makes it easier for us to process oxygen and is better for your practice than dry heat.
Infrared radiant heat offers a variety of health benefits over traditional heating systems, including:
1. Reducing dust/emissions – Unlike forced air heating systems, our infrared radiant heating panels do not blow dust or allergens. They do not release any emissions, chemicals or pollutants and help keep the air clean and clear.
2. Therapeutic relief – Odds are you have experienced the soothing feeling of warm summer sun on your skin. Our heaters, like the sun, produce radiant heat waves which work to heat up water. Because the human body is made up of mostly water, this infrared heat transfers extremely effectively and can help gently increase blood circulation, rid the body of toxins and even provide pain relief. The body easily absorbs the heat in this wavelength, which penetrates well below the skin, which is optimal for heating people at room temperature or hot yoga enthusiast alike!
