BIKRAM YOGA FOR THE BUSY YOGI
The BYL Express class is the 60 minute version of the original 90 minute Bikram Yoga class, except that with Express, some postures have one set instead of two. Some refer to this as is Bikram Yoga ‘lite’, but while shorter than the original series, this 60 minute sequence represents a wonderful, fast paced 60 minute challenge with all of the postures contained in the original.
Look for this class in several places on our schedule, including early mornings, lunchtimes and late evenings. We also offer our popular BYL Music Beats Express, which is the same as BYL Express, only with an amazing soundtrack designed to uplift and inspire.
BYL Express is a perfect way to get a powerful yet calming Bikram Yoga fix to meet even the tightest London schedules.
While not requirement, some newbies may want to commence their practice with a few classes of the 90 minute Bikram Yoga series before attending their first BYL Express, as the 90 minute version runs through two sets of every posture, allowing new yogis little more more time to learn each posture.
Is this class suitable for beginners?
What do I need to bring?
What is the temperature? Will it be manageable for me?
As with any activity, for most people the first class can be challenging (typically due to the heat). It typically gets easier quickly from there and very likely you’ll soon be craving the heat, particularly as your body starts to change.
We have students ranging in age from 17 to 80, so no matter what your age or level of fitness, Bikram yoga is a great way to begin. We encourage you to 'listen' to your body at all times in the yoga room, initially taking small steps as your body gradually begins to open up.
What's the calorie burn? Will I lose weight?
People often report seeing changes in their bodies after the first few classes. Clothing feels looser, and the body starts to reshape itself as it becomes stronger and leaner.
