Original Hot Yoga
The Original Hot Yoga series is one of the most healing forms of movement out there. Even if you’re injured you can still come to any OHY class and not only get a workout but also heal your body from the inside out. This scientifically designed sequence follows the same 26 poses in every class and is the most accessible and effective yoga discipline in the world. Designed to improve the function and movement of every part of your body there are no prerequisites to starting this practice. You don’t have to be fit. Or flexible. Or a yogi. Or an athlete. You just need to be a person who can breathe and who wants to do something powerful to improve your life.

BYUV Flow is based on the Baptiste Power Yoga series, Journey into Power created by Baron Baptiste. Classes are challenging, yet accessible to everybody, and they focus on linking your breath to your movement, keeping you present and focused throughout your practice. This class contains the 5 essential categories of asana – standing poses, forward bends, backbends, twists, and inversions. This combination creates a fun, athletic vinyasa style yoga that leaves you feeling empowered and amazing!
Yin yoga is a slower-paced style of yoga that is done primarily in a seated position. Poses are held longer to allow the muscles to relax and to stretch the deep connective tissue and the fascia in the body. Yin primarily works the lower part of the body – the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine – which are especially rich in connective tissues. In this class, you will slow down, settle in and you will leave feeling like you just took a “mini-vacation.” It is a must try!
What is range of motion (ROM) and why is it important?
ROM is the amount of movement around specific joints, where you can move with control, offering you freedom in your body. Think of it as your workspace and if you can't move it you can't train it.
If you have limited ROM in your shoulder, let's say flexion, (decreasing the angle of the joint to the body) and are consistently taking your arm overhead...another body part is helping the arm get there. In this case - usually the lower back and or neck. Inevitably this compensation will cause lower back pain and or neck pain. Why? Because the lower back and neck are not designed to work as a shoulder.
Understanding your ROM can be a key component in helping to feel your very best on and off the mat.
Come to class. Put the work in and get to know where your limitations are, learn how to address them, and gain freedom in your body.
At BYUV we offer a variety of classes that work incredibly well together and offer you movement, fitness, strength, and provide degrees of freedom in your body.
One of the best ways to see the results you show up for and feel your very best is to de-load that hiit class with a nice long stretch. Get that heavy lift in with a kettlebell class and follow it up with a lovely yin. Looking to get more mobility into your fitness class? Try a fusion.
