BYC Hot Yoga and Hot Yoga Express
BYC Hot Yoga is a 90 or 60 minute begining yoga class that includes 26 asanas (postures) and two pranayama (breathing exercises). The series is derived from the complete system of 84 asanas and pranayamas developed by Bishnu Ghosh. It is a progressive workout where each posture stretches and strengthens the muscles, ligaments, and joints needed for the next posture in the series.
 
The room is intentionally heated to 105 degrees and 40% humidity in order to warm your muscles, prevent injury, allow a deeper workout, and cleanse your body by releasing toxins. Each class stimulates the organs, glands, and nerves, providing fresh oxygenated blood to the body. The class also helps cultivate faith, concentration, patience, determination, and self-discipline. This method offers a challenging, effective, and rewarding practice that will increase flexibility, improve circulation, and help reduce stress. Students of all ages and levels of fitness will benefit from this total body workout.

Why 105 Degrees?
 
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.  A warm body is a flexible body. Once the body is warmed up, you can reshape it 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 nourishment to every cell of your body so that each one can perform its function and keep your body healthy. BYC 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.
