Yoga is a system of self-improvement and spiritual growth that developed in India over 2,000 years ago. There are many branches of yoga. Hatha is the most widely known. Yoga means “union” implying a connection and harmony of body, mind and spirit. Developing this harmony is what a yoga “practice” is all about. It’s very easy to learn but the practice is a lifelong journey. At Virginia Beach Hot Yoga Studio, we offer the following classes. Click the “schedule” tab for the complete schedule.
- Hot Yoga: A series of 26 to 30 postures practiced in a heated environment in order to warm muscles, soothe joints, and detoxify through the process of sweating, breath work, and compression postures. Prepare by drinking plenty of water and dressing in light clothing. (60 and 75 minutes)
- Hot Flow: This class is considered a “vinyasa” as we move through the postures in a constant rhythm with traditional sun salutations for transition. The room is moderately heated, the workout is more cardiovascular, it combines upper body strength with flexibility, and is designed for students of all levels although some yoga experience is required. Come prepared to sweat from an intense workout! (60 and 75 minutes)
- Warm Flow: This is simply a cooler version of our hot flow. It’s a multi-level class. Don’t worry if you are new to flow; good instruction and less heat will make it a bit easier to practice the coordination of breath with movement. (60 minutes)
- Yin: Long-held, deep postures supported by pillows, blankets and blocks allow for lengthening and stretching of the body’s connective tissue. According to Chinese medicine, the energy channels run deep within this tissue so, not only is a yin practice extremely relaxing, it goes deeper and is more energizing than a typical yoga practice. Bring a blanket and pillow as studio supplies are limited. (60 minutes)
