Hot Yoga- NBalance Series

This is our sequence of Hatha yoga asanas, or postures, which provides a comprehensive workout that engages the body and the mind. Each asana is held statically, ranging from 30 seconds to 1 minute, which not only develops strength and increases range of motion but also allows time to focus on the breath and proper alignment.  The cumulative series and the heat of the room (hot- approximately 100⁰F) work together to increase blood and oxygen flow which results in a high caloric burn that also brings about a sense of calm clarity to the mind.  Classes vary in length from 45 minutes to 90 minutes (see schedule), and this class is great for all levels of yoga practice (ranging from beginners to advanced yogis).

Pratyahara Variation

Pratyahara is a Sanskrit term that relates to the “withdrawal of the senses.”  This class is based off our NBalance Series and performed in a candlelit studio with minimal cueing to create a setting with fewer distractions so that we can turn the awareness within. We recommend that yogis have experience with the NBalance series first in order to feel more comfortable with fewer cues. The room is (hot- approximately 100⁰F) and the class is 60 minutes in length.


Vinyasa

A flow style form of Hatha yoga which connects the breath with dynamic movement and as you transition from one asana (posture) to the next.  The class typically moves through a warm-up, include Sun Salutations that move through strategically placed postures leading up to a peak pose or target a specific body area. While the pace and sequence will vary per the instructor, the class is always designed to challenge all levels by creating space for both modifications and variations. of the room can vary from gentle to warm (83-93⁰F), depending on the instructor, and class time can vary from 45-75 minutes.   All levels of yoga practice are welcome (ranging from beginners to advanced yogis).

Summer Sadhana

Summer Sadhana, or Summer Practice, focuses on the energetics of the practice by beginning with a vinyasa flow for a specific group of asanas, is followed by an extended savasana for deep relaxation, and concluded with pranayama and a guided meditation. This class is a great way to use the awakened energies of the season to transform our inner landscape. Previous practice in our studio is suggested.

Hot Yoga Fusion

This is a signature class of NBalance in which a vinyasa flow is combined with Hot Yoga series postures and core work.  The vinyasa flow creates a cardio workout that builds endurance, the static postures and core work both strengthen muscles, while seated static poses can release deep sources of physical and emotional tension. A guided savasana and pranayama help to ease the body and mind into a deeper sense of calm and relaxation. Modifications and options for progressions are offered throughout this practice so that it is accessible to yogis of all levels. The room temperature is   hot (95-98⁰F) and the class length is between 45-75 minutes (see schedule).
