Hot 26 & 2 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:

Silent is the same Hot 26 & 2 class with less talk and smoother transitions.! The instructor will practice with the class giving limited dialogue directing students to enter and exit poses only.
*We highly suggest taking a few classes prior to attending a silent class.
The Hot 26 & 2 class you know and love taken just a bit deeper by introducing flow, core engagement and focus. Core 45 will help you increase strength, focus and balance. The class offers the option to do advanced postures, but we ask that you do not move forward with the advanced if you are early in your practice as the beginner postures are the foundation for the advanced postures. Additionally, we ask that these poses are only performed in Core 45 classes.
*We highly suggest having practiced 6 months or more prior to attending or performing advanced postures.
