Bikram Yoga Athlone has a number of summer specials to get you fit and healthy.
If you have never yoga or if you have fallen off the wagon, hopefully these great specials will give you the little push that you need to get back to it.
Starting on June 1, Bikram is offering its first Hot Yoga 4x4 challenge to get summer ready. This comprises four hot yoga classes per week for four consecutive weeks, all for just €120. If you complete the challenge you will go into a draw for a number of exciting prizes.
You do not have to be strong or flexibile to do yoga, that is what the yoga is going to give you. Bikram has three different types of hot yoga classes on offer.
The ‘Bikram Class’ is a 26 yoga posture sequence with two breathing exercises. Every posture is done twice, opening the body in the first set and then potentially aiming for depth in the second set. Each posture is done with precision in mind, working to maintain the correct alignment of the body. You achieve this by working on both strength and flexibility in every posture, hoping to maintain the natural range of motion of all the joints and soft tissue. This class is suitable for all levels and is the one that beginners should attend first.
The ‘BYA Mix’ is a new 90 minute hot yoga class using some postures from the Bikram class as well as a lot of new ones. There are more hip openers and upper body strengthening. This dynamic and energetic class is not suitable for beginners. It is great for preparing you for the ‘Hot60’.
The ‘Hot60’ is a faster paced class lasting only 60 minutes. This is a high energy class with postures only done once. People are advised to undertake at least five to 10 Bikram classes to learn the finer details of each posture, then a few BYA Mix classes, before trying the Hot60.
There are a number of other offers available. As well as the summer specials, the introductory offer is always available for first timers.
