About Hot Yoga – 90 Minute & 60 Minute Classes

The Original Hot Yoga Long Island

What is the Hot 90 minute yoga class?

Our Hot 90 Yoga class is the original 26 posture sequence selected and developed from Hatha Yoga. Each class is 90 minutes long and the room is heated to 105° fahrenheit, with 40% humidity.

It has been proved and experienced by millions that these 26 postures systematically work every part of the body, to give all the internal organs, all the veins, all the ligaments, and all the muscles everything they need to maintain optimum health and maximum function. Each component takes care of something different in the body, and yet they all work together synergistically, contributing to the success of every other one, and extending its benefits.

What is the Hot 60 minute yoga class?

The 60-minute class is choreographed from the same postures as the 90 minute class, but moves at a quicker flow and has a lot less rest. As a result of the faster pace, there are increased cardio-vascular benefits, which help to create leaner muscle. Read more about our 60 Minute Hot Yoga classes here.

Why the heated room?

Yoga changes the construction of the body from the inside out, from bones to skin and from fingertips to toes. So before you change it, you have to heat it up to soften it, because a warm body is a flexible body. Then you can reshape the body any way you want.

Hatha Yoga flushes away the waste products, the toxins of all the glands and organs of your body. It provides a natural irrigation of the body through the circulatory system, with the help of the respiratory system. It brings nourishments to every cell of your body so that each one can perform its function and keep your body healthy. Hot Yoga also employs heat to further that cleaning process: When you sweat, impurities are flushed out of the body through the skin.

Practicing yoga not only increases our supplies of oxygen, but it also teaches us how to use that oxygen properly – we learn to control the breath through pranayama.

Benefits of Hot Yoga

The Hot Yoga twenty-six posture exercise systematically move fresh, oxygenated blood to one hundred percent of your body, to each organ and fiber, restoring all systems to healthy working order, just as Nature intended. Proper weight, muscle tone, vibrant good health, and a sense of well being will automatically follow.

This Beginning Yoga Class is a twenty-six asana series designed to scientifically warm and stretch muscles, ligaments and tendons, in the order in which they should be stretched.

Do you offer beginner yoga and advanced yoga classes?

All classes are beginner’s classes. The Hot Yoga 26 posture sequence is designed for the beginner yoga student in mind, to allow anyone to benefit from their first class.

There are no advanced postures in any class, but don’t let that discourage you if you are already an advanced yoga practioner of a another yoga discipline. As you improve, your postures become deeper and therefore, more advanced.

Each posture provides 100% benefit if done correctly from the first 1% of the posture. As your body opens up and becomes stronger, you will go deeper and hold the posture longer.

Some helpful tips

What Remember to breathe! Yes, it’s true: Many of us will hold our breath during physical exertion, keep breathing even if you are taking in small sips of air.

When in doubt go easy. Asana means with ease. Push yourself as hard as you can, but at the same time respect your body and your abilities. Patience is one of the most challenging aspects of Hot 90 Yoga. Willingness is the key. Ninety-five percent of your practice is simply getting to the studio. So just show up, no excuses, no compromises!

Discover your body, your mind and your limits! It is your instructor’s job to push you to your limit. But only you know what you feel on any given day. This is your opportunity to learn about your mind-body connection and balance.

It’s the intention, not the perfection.
