When my journey with yoga began 7 years ago, I had no idea how deeply and profoundly it would enrich my life. For the first time in many years, I developed a sense of peace and ease in my own mind. I even started to feel a love for and belief in myself that I hadn't felt since childhood. I was instantly hooked and it became my new form of daily medicine. My journey is no where near complete as I am always learning and evolving in my own exploration of life and of the practice. Currently my main focus is on studying the principles of Ayurveda and learning to live a life in balance and in harmony. My classes reflect this understanding by selecting what is right for our bodies energetically depending on the season, time of day, or what's going on around the world. My goal is for my students to leave feeling strong, empowered, and connected to their radiant joyful truth!
Jessica instructs the following:
Restorative Yoga is a therapeutic style of yoga which utilizes props to make it easier for the body to get into certain poses, and thus, surrender to the pose. Practicing poses using props provides a completely supportive environment for total relaxation. The more your body is supported in the poses the deeper the sense of relaxation. Relaxation is a state in which there is no movement, no effort, and the brain is quiet. Typically, Restorative poses are sustained for ten minutes or for as long as you are comfortable. This deep relaxation will help you feel healed and nurtured from within. Combine this with Yin yoga and you get an amazing blissed out practice!
This class is held in the non-heated room.
Our hot yoga classes are the most popular classes at Bindi Yoga! Simply put, hot yoga is yoga postures performed in a heated room. These classes are primarily hatha based, but our instructors like to add a flowing element to classes which add internal heat and energy. Each class and each teacher teaches differently to bring variety as well as variations and modifications to each class.
The temperature and humidity may vary depending on class time and number of students, but we try and make the atmosphere the same for each class. We keep our heated room to around 105 degrees (Hot Power Vinyasa classes range from 95-100 degrees). We are aware that humidity can cause serious overheating and over exhaustion, therefore we opt for a dryer heat by excluding a humidifier which most hot yoga studios in the area have.
If you have any questions about Hot Yoga at Bindi Yoga before taking a class, please let us know! All of our instructors are here to help in any way possible.
