Get ready to sweat.
Experience transformation in the heat! Most classes at CPY are heated within the range of 93-98 degrees using state of the art infrared, radiant heating panels. Infrared heat directly heats objects, delivering warmth that is healing and nourishing to your joints, muscles and bones; while building purifying heat (in yoga, “tapas”) from the inside out. You will be sure to notice the lasting impact of infrared heat in the body, leaving class feeling rinsed, refreshed and renewed!
make sure you’re hydrated.
What to bring to class, you ask? Your hydrated self, first! Things you’ll need to take class @ CPY:
Towel (for sweaty hands/face!)
We have mats & towels for rental ($2 each) and cold, filtered drinking water for you to re-fill your bottle and enjoy! PRO tip: Electrolyte powders (we love Ultima!) are great to add to your water for quick replenishing, and to avoid dehydration. Psssst- Let the front desk know if you need any!
the only flexibility you need is in your mind.
We are an inclusive community and all of our classes are All Levels, all you have to do is Show Up and be willing to try. Drop your “I can’t” stories, limiting beliefs and fear and step into Possibility when you practice! If you’ve made it this far, You are Ready Now!
All of our practices, Signature classes, descriptions and experience are unique to Community Power Yoga.
There truly is no place like our hOMe, and we are honored and thrilled to share with you! All of our classes are All Levels and All are Welcome.
