Your Body’s Powerhouse – What is it?

By Monique Crous, Head Hot HIIT Instructor at BYNYC

In a Hot HIIT class we spend a lot of time strengthening not only the abdominal muscles, but the lower back muscles, the glutes, the muscles around your hips, and the pelvic floor. These muscles work together to create a supportive corset for the trunk of your body. As a group, we refer to these muscles as your “Powerhouse”.

powerhouse

The term “Powerhouse” was created by Joseph Pilates to describe the place in the body from where all movement and energy stems. All movement should begin from the center and move outward to the limbs. It is the Powerhouse that gives us energy, strength, stability and control.

When we strengthen the muscles of the Powerhouse, our posture becomes supported and our shoulders can relax. Our chest opens, allowing it to expand and contract easily with the breath. The neck and head are aligned and can move more freely, and it relieves stress in the hips, legs and feet. So in your next Hot HIIT class, when the instructor tells you to pinch that penny in your bum and tighten up your glutes, pelvic floor, and stomach, tighten them up and find your center!

Hot HIIT Classes in NYC

Instructor Sabrina Johnson

Instructor Sabrina Johnson

Hot HIIT classes are 1 hour in length and are performed on a mat with no props or equipment. We recommend apparel similar to what you would wear to a Bikram Yoga class and that you eat and hydrate in a similar manner. Curious? Come give it a try! All levels are welcome.

Hot HIIT

Hot HIIT is a training system that combines High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and Pilates principles. It combines muscle toning and cardio in a room heated to around 95 degrees. The practice cre­ates long lean mus­cle mass while burning fat, with rapid results. It cre­ates a stronger core, improves cir­cu­la­tion, and increases flex­i­bil­ity. It is per­formed on a yoga mat mak­ing it low impact, pro­tect­ing your joints and mus­cles from the pound­ing of other exer­cises like run­ning and jumping.

It is a full body workout paired up with up-beat music. You will gain health and flexibility and train your muscles to work together; which will lead to weight loss, good posture, & strength throughout your body.

2016 in Review + January 2017

With 2016 coming to an end, we wanted to extend our sincerest gratitude for being part of our community and supporting our local, privately owned business. 

Since many of you are such strong practitioners, this year we felt it was time to introduce new classes that complement the Bikram practice – such as Hot HIIT and Yin Nidra Yoga. You’ve embraced these changes beautifully, and we look forward to finding new ways to motivate, challenge and inspire you in 2017.

We’re working hard to complete many upgrades at the studio and want to thank you for your patience. After years of researching the best type of studio flooring, we’ve chosen Zebra Athletics, the most safe, sanitary and environmentally friendly flooring we could find. We’re really excited about this change and hope you are too!

With 2017 around the corner, we’re thrilled to start another year of new classes, workshops, special events and more. Until then, enjoy this year in review post and once again, thank you for being a part of our community!

Happy New Year!
Donna Rubin & Jennifer Lobo

Studio Renovations

As seen in our Mannequin Challenge at the Upper East Side studio, we’re in the process of installing new flooring in each of our studios. With just two room left to complete, we’re almost there! We are also in the process of upgrading, renovating and painting all of our location lobbies, hallways and locker rooms.

New Classes

49for30

Perhaps our most notable change in 2016 is the addition of new class types to our schedule. For our Bikram method offering, we’ve continued to expand the number of shorter (60 & 75 minute) classes to the schedule, while continuing to offer a large number of 90 minute classes each week.

We also are very proud to be the only studio in NYC offering Hot HIIT classes. They’ve been so popular, we’re offering a Hot HIIT Teacher Training this January. The deep stretching and meditation practice that is Yin Nidra was also added along side our Intermediate Series. Book any of these classes on our app, or by visiting our schedule page.

Special Events

Series: Student Stories

Nothing makes us happier than to hear about the progress our students have made at the studio, with their bodies, minds, and in their lives as a whole! This is our motivation.

Series: Teacher Features

In 2016 we ran features on nearly every single one of our 50+ incredible instructors, including our founders Donna Rubin and Jennifer Lobo. We asked them what teaching classes means to them and about the joy they get seeing students progress. See a full list of every instructor we’ve interviewed here and connect with them at the studio.

Series: Quizzes

Bikram Yoga classes can sometimes be challenging, and there’s a lot to understand and remember.

Take the quiz above, or to see our full list click here.

Series: Posture of the Week

My 30 Day Challenge

my30d

In 2016 we took our 30 Day Challenge to the next level! We conceived, designed, implemented and deployed a comprehensive 30 day email campaign that acts as a virtual coach for your challenge. After signing up for the challenge, participants receive 30 consecutive emails starting on Day 1, each with motivational messages from our staff, exclusive 1-2 minute posture videos and a daily dose of inspiration designed to help motivate you.

We Supported Charity

2016charitychallenge

In early November 2016 we announced a partnership with Causely, a program where each check-in on Facebook at the studio would help fund educational programs about prostate cancer that would reach at least 13 men. In December each check-in helped to deliver a toy, book or gift to a less fortunate child via Toys for Tots. 2016 also marks the 2nd consecutive year of our Holiday Charity Challenge where BYNYC donates $50 to the charity of a students’ choice.

We Turned 17

17years

Bikram Yoga NYC opened it’s doors on August 8th, 1999 at 797 8th Avenue, near Times Square. Since then we’ve gone on to open 7 yoga rooms across 4 locations in Manhattan. As part of a retrospective in August 2016, we look a look at 10 Historical Facts about Bikram Yoga NYC that you might not know!

Trending: Yoga Science

sciencecollage

We’ve always been a supporter of Medical Science as it relates to our classes. So much so, that we hosted New York City’s very first Symposium on the subject in February 2014. In May of this year, we authored a post titled Yoga Science: Why Does Bikram Yoga Make You Feel So Good? which went on to be shared over 2000 times on Facebook. Our follow up post Yoga Science: How Bikram Yoga Effects Your Mental Health was equally well received.

January 2017 & Beyond

Having laid substantial groundwork in terms of renovations, new classes, special events and our overall offering at the studio, we couldn’t be more excited moving into 2017! Here’s a taste of what to expect at the studio this January:
