Perhaps you are a devoted fan of Bikram yoga, also known as hot yoga, or perhaps only just now has trying this type of yoga crossed your mind. Regardless, Bikram yoga is a great way to increase your flexibility and strength, improve your mood and confidence, lose weight, and enhance your balance. And best of all, Bikram Yoga Lower East Side is conveniently located near our Stuyvesant Town apartment complex. 

This yoga studio is all about working hard and playing hard. The classes, led by the best instructors around, are open to yogis of all levels. If you have never tried a Bikram yoga class, there is no need to worry, as the instructors will expertly guide you through the class and make you feel right at home. 

Each class is an hour and a half long, takes place in a heated room, and goes through a series of 26 poses and 2 deep breathing exercises. Some of these poses include half moon pose, eagle pose, triangle pose, tree, cobra, camel pose, and spine twisting. The heat aids in stimulating your cardiovascular system and permits your body to sweat, detoxify, and loosen up.
