Our Biltmore Hot class is a set sequence of yoga poses designed for all levels, from beginning to advanced students. Set in a heated room, this 80-minute class always follows the same series of postures, specifically arranged to bring the body into balance and foster movement that emphasizes strength and mindfulness. Biltmore Hot is a blend of yoga disciplines, including Bikram and Vinyasa. Portions of the class focus on standing "static" postures. Others follow a continuous flow set to music. The practice concludes with a series of deep stretching floor poses.

Hot Barre / Sculpt
What is barre/sculpt? It's a Long story, actually. It's about the physical as well as the aesthetic benefits of lengthening muscles, while strengthening them. You've admired dancers' bodies, admit it (we all have). barre. combines Pilates, yoga and ballet moves to give you beautiful, sculpted, lean muscles – without the impact and injuries dancers endure. The other, just as significant, aspect of barre. is the focus it demands. And the focus you reclaim as you go through your workout – armed (with well-defined arms we might add) to face the rest of your day calmly, confidently, health-fully.
Challenge your mind and body with this intense, heated practice focusing on a flow of intermediate to advanced postures and sequences. Hand stands and forearm stands may be introduced in this class.
Our Yin Restorative class focuses on therapeutic healing of the body, mind and spirit. Set in a non-heated, tranquil room, the instructor helps students to cultivate stillness and deep relaxation. Poses are held for 5 – 10 minutes to target the ligaments and connective tissues of the body, often with the assistance of props. This class is a beautiful compliment to a vigorous Yang practice. It is also highly beneficial to students recovering from injury or coping with stress and anxiety.
The Biltmore Studio was founded on the belief that yoga is truly for every one. Our commitment is to teach and foster the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of yoga in a loving and community-based setting. The practice of yoga at The Biltmore Studio is as much of a “work-in” as a “workout”. It is about a lifestyle change and a shift in perspective. We want to change the way you think, not only about your yoga but also about your life.
