My wife and I own Akasha Yoga in Vacaville. We offer hot hatha (Bikram series), hot vinyasa, and other room temp yoga
classes. We also built a hot yoga room ( 4 - 6 people) at our mountain home on the Big Island of Hawaii. Hot Hatha to Bikram in paradise!! Call me at (707) 372-7814 for more information about our studio or renting our Hawaii home.
Akasha Yoga offers hot hatha and heated vinyasa flow yoga classes. Both styles offer a vigorous work out while improving
strength, flexibility, balance and focus. In our heated vinyasa classes you will 'flow' from one posture to the next using the breath as the link. In our hot hatha classes you will hold a posture for a set period of time and then relax for a brief moment before starting the next posture. Both classes invite new and experienced students.
Benicia Yoga and Wellness offers Yoga classes and Bodywork that are meant to help you reach your own state of optimum
health. We strive to meet the individual needs of the student or client, and welcome those with physical challenges or limitations.
Our Yoga classes are meant to make you feel good, in an atmosphere free from judgment and competition. Our teachers go beyond demonstrating the poses by getting off their mats and offering individual attention in order to enhance the student's overall yoga experience. Whether we help you adjust the pose with props or guide you deeper into your pose, it is all about helping you get the most out of your practice and finding balance between body, mind and spirit. Most of us have no idea how tense we are until we release that tension.
We offer private Yoga classes for those that need more individual attention than the class environment is capable of providing and for those who are not comfortable in a group setting.
