We Love Beginners

Our classes are designed with beginners in mind. Our mission is to provide classes to as many people as possible, whether they are overweight or super fit, slightly injured, banged up, or completely healthy. In other words, we are here for regular people like you!

Our classes are simple and very challenging. Soreness is a part of the process. Our instructors are compassionate and helpful.

If you are looking for fat loss and overall fitness, take our Inferno Hot Pilates classes. If you are trying to increase your strength, take our Heated Yoga Strength classes which are amazing and combine yoga with weights. If you are looking to improve your flexibility and overall health, take our Hot Yoga classes. And if you are simply wanting to slow down, take our Gentle classes. All of our classes are designed to compliment one another.

We encourage you to pace yourself at the beginning. Stay in the room to acclimate to the temperature. Take breaks. Stay hydrated. And rest. Take as many classes as you can in your first month to get a feeling for what these classes can do for you. We have seen people make drastic changes simply by coming to a lot of classes in a short amount of time.

Getting Started

We recommend that you start with the $49 Unlimited 1 Month Introductory Special. This is an affordable way to try several of the yoga styles with various teachers. This plan also includes the services of our Yoga Advisors, who can help you decide which class will suit you best.

Let us help you prepare for your first class by contacting us directly or by contacting us today.

We look forward to seeing you on your mat!

BYC HOT YOGA AND HOT YOGA EXPRESS

BYC Hot Yoga is a 90 or 60-minute beginning yoga class that includes 26 asanas (postures) and two pranayamas (breathing exercises). The series is derived from the complete system of 84 asanas and pranayamas developed by Bishnu Ghosh. It is a progressive workout where each posture stretches and strengthens the muscles, ligaments, and joints needed for the next posture in the series.

The room is intentionally heated to 105 degrees and 40% humidity in order to warm your muscles, prevent injury, allow a deeper workout, and cleanse your body by releasing toxins. Each class stimulates the organs, glands, and nerves, providing freshly oxygenated blood to the body. The class also helps cultivate faith, concentration, patience, determination, and self-discipline. This method offers a challenging, effective, and rewarding practice that will increase flexibility, improve circulation, and help reduce stress. Students of all ages and levels of fitness will benefit from this total body workout.

  • Come to class hydrated.
  • Wear workout clothing that you are comfortable sweating in.
  • Bring a yoga mat, towel, and a water bottle.
  • We rent yoga mats and towels for $2 each.
  • We sell water for $3.

WHY 105 DEGREES?

Yoga changes the construction of the body from the inside out, from bones to skin and from fingertips to toes. So before you change it, you have to heat it up to soften it. A warm body is a flexible body. Once the body is warmed up, you can reshape it any way you want.

Hatha Yoga flushes away the waste products – the toxins of all the glands and organs of your body. It provides a natural irrigation of the body through the circulatory system with the help of the respiratory system. It brings nourishment to every cell of your body so that each one can perform its function and keep your body healthy. BYC Hot Yoga also employs heat to further that cleaning process: When you sweat, impurities are flushed out of the body through the skin.
Practicing yoga not only increases our supplies of oxygen, but it also teaches us how to use that oxygen properly – we learn to control the breath through pranayama.


Inferno Hot Pilates

Inferno Hot Pilates is a train­ing system which combines Pilates principles with high intensity interval training and is performed in a room heated to 100 degrees Fahrenheit and 40% humidity.

Inferno Hot Pilates combines cardio and muscle ton­ing in a heated room. The high intensity inter­val train­ing keeps your heart rate up, help­ing you burn fat. The Pilates principles sculpt your body, creating long, lean muscle mass. The heat loosens up the muscles quickly and the humidity makes you sweat — elevating your heart rate, boosting metabolism, and promoting detoxification.

Inferno Hot Pilates creates long, lean muscle mass, burns fat, and increases fitness levels. It creates a stronger core, improves circulation, and increases flexibility. It is performed on a yoga mat making it zero impact, protecting your joints and muscles from the pounding of other exercises like running and jumping.

  • Come to class hydrated.
  • Wear workout clothing that you are comfortable sweating in.
  • Bring a yoga mat, towel, and a water bottle.
  • We rent yoga mats and towels for $2 each.
  • We sell water for $3.

What are the benefits of HIIT?
HIIT training has been shown to improve:

    muscles more readily use glucose for fuel to
    make energy)
  • Cholesterol profiles

    maintaining muscle mass.

WHAT IS VINYASA?

Vinyasa is defined as “breath-synchronized movement”, so a Vinyasa yoga flow is primarily focused on keeping in motion with your breath. Your breathing will push you into each pose, making them incredibly effective and powerful. Quickly becoming one of the most popular forms of yoga for exercise, Vinyasa is a great workout because although it is incredibly effective, it also gives you a chance to really tune in on your breath and your breath only, helping you relax.

OUR CLASS

We proudly offer an all-level Vinyasa class in which you can practice your flow. During this class, we’ll go through a sequence of poses that build both flexibility and strength, applying our focus to our breath the whole way through. We’ll guide you through each and every pose, making sure that you are getting in and out safely. Our Vinyasa Flow class is open to people of all skill levels, body types, and abilities. Teaching you proper breathing technique and basic to intermediate poses, we’ll help you make your practice effective.

Want to try Vinyasa for yourself? Interested in finding out more? Check out our class schedule or give us a call today. We look forward to seeing you soon.


GENTLE YOGA

Gentle Yoga explores asanas (yoga postures) in a safe, gentle way without heat or extreme movement of the body. A great class for all levels but especially for beginners, those sensitive to heat, or those healing from injury. The class will gently take you through meditation, pranayama (breathing), standing asanas, and floor asanas to build strength, flexibility, and proper alignment.

YIN YOGA

Yin Yoga theory approaches the subtle energy and physical body through softening surrender. We are passive, light, and receptive. This softness of body/mind allows Chi to move through the meridians to restore health in all systems and organs of the body. Yin Yoga stretches the connective tissues and allows for this spaciousness to penetrate and heal our bone structures with a greater range of motion in the flexibility of the body. Passive asanas are held for up to five minutes, giving the practice a strong foundation in mindfulness and meditation, as the source of yin energy arises in stillness. It is accessible to and benefits all students of yoga, both beginner and advanced. Each class is 90 minutes and taught in a warm room.
