Bikram Hot Yoga - Beginner
Bikram's Hot Yoga is a series of 26 Hatha Yoga postures and 2 Pranayama breathing exercises. There are 84 Classic Hatha Yoga postures in the Bishnu Ghosh Lineage. The 26 postures in the Bikram sequence are considered the most basic and beginner level postures, making this a beginner level class. The challenge of this class, other than the heat, is that all the postures are performed twice and the class is 90 minutes. There is a short resting period between every posture, giving the body time to regulate and integrate before the next pose. This is the primary difference between a Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga. Vinyasa is considered continually moving or "flow." The other noticeable distinction is the lack of upward and downward dog transitions that frequent Vinyasa Yoga.
Hot Hour - Beginner
This is the 26 postures of a Bikram class performed once. Abdominal strenghtening postures/exercises from the classic 84 postures have been added to created a more balanced therapeutic yoga class. This class is 60 minutes,
Power Yoga - Power Hour Beginner/intermediate
The term became common during the mid-1990s when two American yoga teachers who had studied with Ashtanga guru Sri K. Pattabhi Jois began to make what they had learned more accessible to western students. They also wanted to move away from the rigid Ashtanga sequence, which is a set series of poses that are always done in the same order. Bryan Kest, based in Los Angeles and Beryl Bender Birch, based in New York, are most often credited with the nearly simultaneous invention of Power Yoga on opposite coasts. Both were part of the second generation of American Ashtanga students. Baron Baptiste is another well-known yoga teacher who has successfully established his own style of Power Yoga, Baptiste Power Vinyasa. Baptiste had also studied Iyengar and Bikram, adding the heated component to his classes. Using the non-specific term Power Yoga gave each of these innovators the freedom to draw methods and poses from all their influences simultaneously to create something new.
Hot Vinyasa - Intermediate
The word “vinyasa” can be translated as “arranging something in a special way,” like yoga poses for example. In vinyasa yoga classes, students coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next. Ashtanga, Baptiste Yoga, Jivamukti, Power Yoga, Barkan Yoga and Prana Flow could all be considered vinyasa yoga. Vinyasa is also the term used to describe a specific sequence of poses (Chaturanga to Upward-Facing Dog to Downward-Facing Dog) commonly used throughout a vinyasa class.
