Vinyasa: In this class you will connect your breath to your movement as you flow through a sequence of postures.

Some basic knowledge of poses is helpful when attending this class however if needed the teacher will give suggestions on how to modify and feel comfortable in this class if needed with added instruction.
Vinyasa +Weights: Similar to our regular Vinyasa, the students are guided through a Vinyasa flow, incorporating weights with the movement. The weights are optional to the class; those that opt for the weights will focus on alignment and structure as you add to the posture: curls, lifts, flys or presses. *This class is heated to 85-92 degrees
Vinyasa +HIIT: Bent Yoga Vinyasa with HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is a popular class that provides high energy, faster movements and that heart rate....however we focus on the ability to train our Mind to control the breath and bring the heart rate down as quickly as possible after that burst of energy within the body. *This class is heated to 85-92 degrees. You will leave this class with a much broader knowledge on how your body functions and how to control the reaction within. Available to all students who would like to challenge themselves!
Fitness Flow: Fitness Flow is a high energy Vinyasa class, connecting breath to movement and also providing an overall cardio influence to the class. Be prepared to target muscle groups throughout class and leave with a great sweat and full body workout. *This class is heated to 90-98 degrees.
*Please make special note that our studio features a large space with tall ceilings, the heat is not the equivalent of a regular sized room. If the heat is a concern for you please voice your concern to the teacher; there are places within the studio where the heat is more intense and places where you will feel relief. Usually attendance of 3-5 classes will allow your body to adjust to the movement and the heat. Drinking water regularly throughout the day prior to class will help the transition to the heat. Remember your "First Week Free" is the perfect opportunity to discover your love for your practice at Bent Yoga!
