Kim Manfredi instructs the following:
  • Hot Vinyasa**
  • Hot Vinyasa is a vigorous yoga and the signature style of Charm City Yoga. The room is heated to 85 to 90 degress so your body is warmed, allowing for deeper stretching. The muscles, tendons and ligaments become soft and more flexible. The heat promotes sweating which is a method of cleansing to aid in the healing aspects of this yoga style. All levels of practitioners are welcomed. Please bring water and a towel.


    Level 2, or 2 Diamond, classes are suitable for intermediate students. The basic postures are expanded to include more difficult variations and may be described with less detail. The class will flow at a faster pace and the asanas will be held longer. The classes introduce more advanced breathing techniques and concepts in yogic philosophy including the energetic body.
