Summer Vitality Challenge Begins June 1st!

Why a Summer Challenge?

Because yoga helps you feel your best every season of the year including summer! However, it’s all too easy for our yoga practice to get pushed to the wayside in the hustle and bustle of the summer.

That’s why we’ve created the Summer Vitality Challenge to help you maintain a regular practice of at least 3 classes per week! You’ll look great and feel more comfortable and confident all summer long with Bikram yoga. Commit to your best health and increased vitality by participating in the Challenge!

Let’s Shine Summer Yoga Challenge has two options. Both begin June 1st!

40 classes in 92 days (June 1st – August 31st). Take class 3 times per week to complete this Challenge.

60 classes in 92 days (June 1st – August 31st). Take class 5 times per week to complete this Challenge.

  • Challenges are FUN and REWARDING!
  • Your name will go on the Challenge Board and you’ll keep track of your progress using our fun assortment of stickers (it’s really all about the stickers -LOL).
  • You won’t be doing this alone! Scores of your fellow students will be on the Challenge with you, and the camaraderie and group support will help you stay on-track!

Mark your calendar NOW and get ready for one of your best Summers yet!

Posture Clinic: The Balancing Series

What: 2 hour Posture Clinic

When: Saturday 6/9/18 at 1:00 pm

Investment: only $39! Space is limited to 10 participants. Sign up ASAP to reserve your place.

Do you struggle to balance on one leg or get the grip in Standing Head to Knee, Standing Bow or Balancing Stick? Or on the other hand, do you go fairly deeply into these poses but still aren’t sure if you have all the fundamentals in place?

During this clinic we’ll discuss the right way to lock your knee and how to approach the balancing series with knowledge and confidence no matter your level of experience. You’ll learn the proper alignment and steps of each posture. We’ll also discuss the common challenges many people face and how to work through them.

Posture clinic will be led by instructor Jill Jordan who has been teaching Bikram yoga since 2005. The yoga room will be warm but not hot. Wear yoga clothes and bring your mat, towel and water.
