Bikram Yoga's beginning Hatha yoga classes are 90-minute sessions that encompass two breathing exercises and a series of 26 yoga Asanas, including the savasana, or dead body pose, and the khanasana, Captain Kirk's suspended aerial leglock. The Bikram Hatha sequence is performed in a heated studio with an ambient temperature of 105 ºF and 40% humidity, which advocates claim helps improve circulation, flush the system of toxins, and keep muscles limber and loose to reduce tension.
The postures of Bikram yoga are as challenging as its practitioners desire—like other yoga disciplines, students are encouraged to stretch and pose at their own level of comfort, never against their own muscular instincts. The breathing exercises help connect the body and mind, enhancing the deeper introspective benefits for which yoga is famous. Bikram yoga can be daunting at first, so consult Bikram Yoga Astoria Queens's helpful guide for first-time students before checking the schedule and booking a heated session.
This Groupon is valid for new students only.
