Intimated to get in the heat and try Sumits Yoga!? We completely understand … but we guarantee there’s no reason to be! Our yoga is everyday yoga for anybody. Here’s a description of each of our classes, and what to expect when you come:
This is an 80 minute HOT yoga class, and the core of our yoga world here at Sumits. In the Sumits Practice we take static poses to create focus, …add vinyasa flow for strength and flexibility, play motivating and appropriate music, and all is done in the heat for your health! This amazing combination promises a unique, uplifting, rejuvenating experience. This series of poses will stay the same each class, but no two practices are ever identical … the challenge is yours to create! Each body-bending, mind centering, heart expanding session aims to strengthen your core, increase flexibility, and restore balance—all while you sweat out toxins, increase your blood flow, and flush fat in a heated room. This class is perfect for beginner and experienced yogis alike.
Sumit Banerjee, creator of Sumits Yoga, stresses that the greatest benefit comes not as much from the healing of the body, but from the healing of the mind. “The simple pleasure and self-reward that comes from quieting our minds, listening to each breath and honoring where are bodies are in stillness or movement cannot be measured. You do not measure your yoga practice by how many perfectly aligned poses you can perform”, he asserts, “but by how deep you can immerse yourself inwards. It’s amazing how a simple downward dog can be felt so differently by any student on any given day and still provide a feeling of connection, balance and satisfaction regardless of the depth it’s practiced. This is the beauty of yoga and it awaits every student who is ready let go of the ego and begin listening to our own deeper wisdom.”
This is a truly unique vinyasa practice that uses your own breath to link your movements while working on poses to tone, strengthen, and improve your balance and focus. This class, set to music, is great for those yogis ready to take the next step in their yoga journey, but is also appropriate for beginning students as well! Expect arm balance and inversion options in this practice, and if there is something you would like to work on in class, don’t be afraid to let your instructor know! This powerful practice is a fantastic way to get in touch with your breath, and connect your body and mind through intense flow. No two classes are ever the same!
Yoga Sculpt, our flow class with weights, is a true total body workout! Yogis sculpt their bodies in this class packed with plyometrics, cardio, yoga, and weight-lifting all in one hour. This class can be modified for all fitness levels, and it is a yoga class at the end of the day – the true workout comes from listening to your body and taking care of yourself. This class is a great way to burn some extra calories, build healthy bone density, tone up those shoulders, biceps and core, and leave feeling calm, strong, refreshed and rejuvenated! Sumits Yoga Sculpt is a unique combination of power yoga and strength training. It is an intense and challenging workout designed to strengthen every student’s yoga practice. Students are responsible for their own weights for this class. We recommend bringing a set of 3 pound weights and a set of 5 pound weights, but the class can be completed without weights at all!
Gentle Stretch Yoga:
Why do gentle yoga? To renew the mind, body, and the spirit. Gentle Stretch Yoga focuses on using the breath as a tool to release tension, and to find a deeper state of relaxation. This 50 minute class is the perfect complement to other Sumits Yoga classes, and will help to quiet your mind and invites you to release deeply held tension.
