“Chronic headaches, brain fog, fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, gut pain, autoimmune conditions… We may think these and other all-too-common modern maladies are due to gluten intake or too much sugar or too little exercise. But there is another missing piece to the health puzzle: Proper hydration,” explains Dr. Dana Cohen, author of the book “Quench.”
Join us Monday, June 25th at 7:15pm at our Midtown studio as Dr. Cohen tells us more with an informative and inspiring lecture on hydration strategies. The lecture will be followed by an open Q & A.

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!

Yin Nidra Yoga
Yin yoga postures are designed to open up the body by prolonged holds of deep stretching techniques – typically between 1 to 5 minutes in length. The second part of the class, Yoga Nidra, builds upon the relaxed physical and mental state from the preceding Yin postures.
Recommended for students with a strong Bikram Yoga foundation, our Intermediate Class uses the strong physical and mental focus learned in the beginning series as the foundation to lead us to a more advanced yoga practice. This class offers students techniques for moving deeper into familiar postures from the beginner’s class, as well as learning new postures and developing new abilities.
In the past, Chrystine Cooper has led a monthly event called Chillax. Starting in December we’re adding 5 weekly chillax classes to the schedule. This 90 minute Bikram Yoga class is accompanied by music for a fun and unique Bikram Yoga experience.

International Yoga Day is celebrated annually on June 21 and was declared to be internationally recognized by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on December 11, 2014. Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice or discipline that originated in India. The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his UN Address suggested the date of June 21, as it is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and shares special significance in many parts of the world.
The idea of an International Yoga Day was first proposed by Narendra Modi during his speech at the UNGA, on September 27, 2014. He stated:
“Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. This tradition is 5000 years old. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.” — Narendra Modi, UN General Assembly
Following this initial proposal, the UNGA held informal consultations on the draft resolution entitled “International Day of Yoga”, on October 14, 2014. The consultations were convened by the delegation of India.
On December 11, 2014, India’s Permanent Representative Asoke Mukherji introduced the draft resolution in UNGA. The draft text received broad support from 177 Member States who adopted the text without a vote. This initiative found support from many global leaders. A total of 175 nations co-sponsored the resolution and had the highest number of co-sponsors ever for any UNGA Resolution of such nature.
