Hot 26 is the original hot Bikram Yoga method, which consists of a powerful 26 posture series practiced for 60 or 90 minutes in a room heated to 105 degrees and 40%. The 26 posture series is designed to warm the whole body, allowing students to work deeper into the muscles, tendons, joints, bones, glands, ligaments and organs while systematically moving fresh oxygenated blood to every part of the body. As a result you will build strength, flexibility, balance and an unparalleled feeling of mental and physical well-being and relaxation. Each posture builds upon the previous posture and prepares you for the next. Proper weight, muscle tone, vibrant good health, and a sense of well being will automatically follow.

This powerful beginners class is designed for all levels, whether a first time student or an advanced practitioner. Performing the same sequence each class ensures you will receive a safe and consistent experience, whether it is in your hometown of Staten Island or while traveling the world. Over time, the students learns how to focus the mind and breathe allowing them to practice deeper while remaining calm and balanced. Some common benefits include, but are not limited to:
