Slow Flow *Extra HOT
This class is based on the Classic 28 sequence Hot Yoga Class but set to a slow flow that is easy to follow but will challenge your strength and stamina! Core, Spine Strengtheners and Hip Openers on the floor (in the longer version of the class) will leave you feeling AMAZING! The heat for this class is set to slightly HIGHER than body temp for an added challenge!
This is an OCCASIONAL addition to the schedule. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for it! Great class for ALL levels, but especially nice for those that are new to the studio or hot yoga in general. Taught with lots of modifications and explanations of poses and purpose of yoga with specific focus on the hot yoga lineage. Welcome to all body types, ages, injuries and ‘issues’…
Come and see why Hot Yoga Helena is for EVERY body!
BALANCE is a perfect class for all levels! This class is unique in that it has NO vinyasa flow (essential if you have wrist or shoulder injuries) and multiple sets of similar balancing poses. This class will allow you to move extra slow… ask questions… meditate, focus and move deeper into each asana as your body becomes more stable and open.
Stretch n Strengthen
Amber brings you a combination of thoughtful, slow poses and flows to gently bring your body back into balance and also build on your foundation of strength.
Lunges and Twists
This is a FUN and FAST class! Half Vinyasa and half Floor with an emphasis on deep, long held lunges and spine twists. SOOOOO good for you! Explore poses not usually practiced like “Bound Tree” and “Compass” pose.
