Practiced in a heated room to facilitate stretching and detoxification, this is a great class for injury rehabilitation.
Designed for beginners through to intermediate, teachers offer gentle alternatives or more dynamic challenges according to your needs. Flowing sequences with emphasis is placed on the synchronisation of breath and movement. Great for upper body strength and improving cardiovascular health, sequences are creative and change from class to class.
Yin yoga is a relaxing floor based practice in which postures are held for 3-5 min. The benefits are created with relaxation and time rather than effort providing a deep release into the connective tissues and joints of the body with emphasis on the hips. This meditative class offers you the opportunity to slow down and encourages the release of emotional tension and stress.

Helpful information for new students.
In the words of Leonard Cohen, 'there's a crack, a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in.' Yoga has shown me that despite my frailties there is a way forward. The Bikram Yoga Launceston Family have been a beacon of light for me. They have shown me how to heal myself in a completely non-judgemental environment. I am grateful for their wisdom, friendship and nourishment. I began my journey on the floor. As I progressed I used the back wall to support me. The teachers helped me modify moves to suit the demands of my body. Over time I have dramatically improved my balance, am more flexible, and most importantly am learning to still my mind. Yoga is a true blessing
