Chillax Music Classes at Bikram Yoga NYC

Starting January 1st we’re offering 5 Bikram method classes a week that are set to music!

For several years on the last Friday of every month Chrystine Cooper hosted a class accompanied by music called Chillax. It’s the traditional 90 minute class, super fun and great change of pace from a normal Bikram Yoga class.  With the popularity of that class along with our Hot HIIT and Yin Nidra classes – also accompanied by music – we thought it only natural to at music themed Bikram method classes!

As always, we’d love your feedback!

Workshop includes:

  • 75 min vinyasa flow and backbend workshop to ignite your heart
  • kundalini meditation techniques to remove blockages

Free Pranayama & Meditation Workshop with Yarrow Kae

Through the asanas combined with the breath we are burning through stagnant, stale energy, old emotions, past hurts, wounds and karma so that we can begin the process of settling our minds into silence. This process is furthered with the use of pranayama breathing techniques and meditation.

In this workshop, Yarrow Kae will teach you several breathing techniques that can assist in purifying the body, breaking through any barriers that may inhibit the mind from settling into silence. Afterwards, we will sit in meditation. It is in silence, in stillness, that we learn to receive.

This is an introduction to meditation and pranayama breathing. First we will perform active breathing exercises and then we will sit and breathe. Afterwards, Yarrow will answer any questions you may have about these practices. 

If you are looking to create a regular meditation practice, Yarrow Kae will give you some tools to help create habits that will support your practice. Just like the asanas are a daily practice, so is meditation. Our minds are like wild horses that need to be trained when we train them we learn how to respond rather than to react. It is through meditation that this can happen.
