About Bliss Yoga Studio

F.A.Q’s

I HAVE NEVER DONE YOGA BEFORE, WHERE DO I START?


While the Building Blocks of Vinyasa class was designed for new students, you are safe to begin in any of our Open Level Vinyasa classes. The Bliss Hot classes are all beginner level and challenging and fun! Everyone has had a first class, so leave your ego at the door and approach yoga with an open mind and heart.




WHAT AND WHEN TO EAT?


Yoga is best done on an empty stomach so do not eat anything 2 hours prior to class. A small snack an hour before is ok if you need to!




HYDRATE! HYDRATE! HYDRATE!


This yoga will be warm and you will sweat. Hydration is key to avoid dizziness or fatigue during class. Ideally you want to drink 8 - 10 glasses of water (8 oz per glass) a day! Try not to drink to much water as it will only distract you from your practice by having to go to the bathroom!




WHY THE HEAT?


  • The heat allows us to get into postures more deeply and effectively, allowing for a greater range of movements in joints, muscles and ligaments. When your muscles and connective tissue become more elastic you allow for greater flexibility with less chance of injury.
  • Sweating promotes detoxification and elimination through the skin - which is the body´s largest eliminating organ
  • Just as when your body raises its temperature to fight infection, the raised temperature in the room will assist in improving T-cell function and the proper functioning of your immune system
  • Your body burns fat more effectively in the heat.
  • Your metabolism speeds up the breakdown of glucose and fatty acids.
  • Practicing hot yoga strengthens willpower, self-control, concentration and determination by challenging you on your mat.
  • A great cardiovascular workout.
  • Because it feels good!




WHAT DO I WEAR?


Snug clothing that you are comfortable sweating in. Women typically wear yoga pants or shorts with a workout top or sports bra. Men wear running shorts and a snug shirt (sleeveless is good) that won´t get in the way of practice. Shirts are optional for men.

CORE


Core includes a focused segment of Pilates movements to activate and strengthen the abdominals and hip stabilizers. A mindful and energetic yoga sequence follows to implement this muscle engagement for a strong and purposeful practice.




HOT


At Bliss we believe in the power of yoga and strive for every member to accomplish their personal health goals. Whether your intention is to lose weight, de-stress, meditation, gain balance and flexibility, rehab an injury, cross-train, or simply to get a little personal time everyday, the Bikram series provide a way to fulfill your wellness ambitions. Why The Bikram Yoga Series? Bliss offers the Bikram Yoga Series, the single best form of yoga to achieve and maintain optimal health, a sharp mind and ideal body. It is designed to work the entire body from head to toe. The Bikram series is an intelligently designed sequence of 26 postures (asanas), practiced for 60 or 90 minutes in a hot room. The increased room temperature aids in warming the muscles and increasing the flexibility of the body tissues, allowing for deeper stretching and helping to prevent injury. Toxins are released through the breath and skin by sweating. The end result is an unparalleled feeling of mental and physical well-being and relaxation.




POWER


Vinyasa powered up! Get ready to work hard, breathe hard and sweat it all out in a room heated to 32ºC. This energetic and challenging class integrates the breath with movement and builds strength, flexibility and core stability. Sequences include standing, balancing, seated, twisting and inverted postures that will keep your yoga practice fresh and lively. Beginners will be challenged, all levels welcome.




FLOW


A flowing sequence of postures that synchronizes the breath with movement. This invigorating practice has a focus on core strength, breath awareness and weaves principles of alignment and energetic movements while honouring the deep connection of mind, body and spirit. Each instructor offers unique sequencing that includes standing, balancing, seated and inverted postures. A warm room with all levels welcome.




KRIYA


This energizing flow will combine undulating movements in the spine, dynamic Pranayama (Prana expanding techinques), visualization of the chakras and chanting to purify the subtle body. This is a means to awaken the potential energy (Kundalini), which exists in a small bowl at the base of the spine. Rhythmic action and breath is used to facilitate the movement of this energy from the Root to the Crown, uniting the male-female, sun-moon, effort-surrender energies known as Shiva-Shakti. This union of energy is the aim of Kundalini yoga: a resolution of duality into unity again, a fusion with the absolute. All levels.




ROOF TOP FULL MOON YOGA


Every month we host a brilliant Flow, Power or Yin Yoga class on our own rooftop looking over the bay and banana plantation all under the glorious full moon and star-studded sky. Please sign up early as space is limited!




YOGA NIDRA


Yoga Nidra is one of the deepest of all meditations, leading awareness through many levels of mental process to a state of supreme stillness and insight. Yoga Nidra brings an incredible calmness, quietness and clarity. In today's busy world, yogic sleep may be the essential tool for rejuvenation.




RESTORATIVE YOGA


Restorative yoga poses help us learn to relax and rest deeply and completely. Passive yoga poses lasting up to 20 minutes, supported by pillows, towels, meant to encourage relaxation via the release of tension in the muscles and spine.




YIN YOGA


Yin Yoga postures are more passive postures, mainly on the floor and the majority of postures equal only about three dozen or so, much less than the more popular yang like practices. Yin Yoga is unique in that you are asked to relax in the posture, soften the muscle and move closer to the bone. While yang-like yoga practices are more superficial, Yin offers a much deeper access to the body. It is not uncommon to see postures held for three to five minutes, even 20 minutes at a time. The time spent in these postures is much like time spent in meditation, and I often talk students through the postures as if they were trying to meditate. While in a Yin class you might notice similar postures to a yang class except they are called something else, on a basic level this is to help the students mind shift form yang to yin, active to passive.
