Boca Raton Class Descriptions
Our yoga room is heated to allow for a deeper release and to avoid injury. The Hot Yoga class is recommended for everyone, from first day beginners to advanced students. The magic of this class is that everyone is practicing the same posture at different levels of ability, receiving the same benefits. There is an exact position for everyone at every level, which our trained instructors will help you find.
Postures practiced in The Barkan Method maintain a basic format offering structure and continuity similar to Bikram. However, various sections of the class change from day to day according to the area of the body the teacher chooses to target. For example, one day during the floor section of the class we may feature backbends, another day hip openers, and another day leg stretches.
This class incorporates Asanas from our lineage into a “Vinyasa” (continuous flow) style. Hot Vinyasa is a vigorous class, combining upper body strength, flexibility and cardio and is designed for students of all levels (beginner friendly) seeking a challenge.
Vin to Yin is a combination of vinyasa flow and yin yoga. A blend of yang/yin; the first portion of class utilizes the heat of vinyasa flow, and is then followed with the stillness of yin postures to achieve balance. A hot flow through sun salutations and standing postures, followed with the passive long holds of yin to target joints, connective tissues, and fascia. Yin poses are floor based and supported with props to create as little effort while holding for 2-5 minutes.
Suitable for all levels. Good choice for beginners.
Hot COREFIT Flow
Yoga is an excellent way to build core strength. In this class, we will explore postures that focus on the primary muscles that stabilize the “core” of your body, and that strengthen and stretch the abdomen, back, buttocks, hamstrings and hip flexors. Your body will enjoy a variety of abdominal work, back bends and twists.
Suitable for all levels.
