Bikram Traditional 90 Min: All Level (105°)


This class is taught by:

Nicole Alfieri


~ Hot Yoga Instructor / Hot Pilates Instructor

This year marks my 20th year of studying and practicing, many forms of yoga. Six years ago, I realized the importance of a regular practice when I began learning about Bikram Yoga. The discipline has allowed me to understand and accept so much in life. My 9 week intense teacher training was in Thailand in 2015, and I have been teaching since July 2015.

 

Teaching yoga is about every single student in the room.The focus is on emphasizing what you can do, working hard, and to stay steady with that concept. My goal is to motivate each and every person to find their edges through that hard work.

 

This Spring, I received a certification to also teach Hot Pilates. What a wonderful compliment to teaching Bikram Yoga. A music fueled hour full of high cardio to target the core, upper body, legs, and arms.You develop long lean muscle mass, stamina, endurance and burn a lot of calories!

 

Since my certification, I have taught classes in Austin TX and Philadelphia, PA.

Denise has been practicing Bikram Yoga for over 20 years. She fell in love with the practice in 1997 while living in San Francisco and while contemplating a career in holistic health. After she took her first Bikram yoga class she knew she wanted to teach and help others discover the ability of healing oneself, both physically and mentally, through Bikram yoga. After attending Bikram’s Teacher Training in 1999, and after teaching at Bikram Yoga Philadelphia for 3 months, she was the first to bring Bikram Yoga to the Palm Springs area of Southern California. In 2002 she opened Bikram Yoga Palm Desert in Palm Desert California. She owned and operated the studio for 10 years before returning to Denise’s hometown of Philadelphia. In 2016 Denise also completed the Intermediate 84 Asana posture training with Ida Ripley. Denise is passionate about teaching and loves to help the beginner discover the practice as well as helping seasoned practitioners reach to higher heights.

 

Bikram Traditional 90 Min. is a traditional hot yoga style condensed into a 90 minute class. You will practice the same 26 postures twice each class. Be prepared to sweat as the room is heated to about 105-110 degrees with 50% humidity. There is not much weight bearing on the wrists or upper body making this class ideal for beginners or those who cannot be weight bearing on their upper body.

The room is heated to allow for improved circulation and cardiovascular health as well as deep muscle stretching and elimination of toxins. Our classes are designed for practitioners of all ages; beginners are welcome. Both men and women love this intense workout, which develops strength, flexibility and balance.

Make sure you're hydrated, wear fitted clothing, bring a towel to place over your mat, and avoid eating a large meal 1-3 hours before coming to class.

- Students who enjoy a challenge and are looking to sweat.

- Pilates and Barre students adding a supporting practice.
