Miami, Florida (PressExposure) January 12, 2012 -- MIAMI - The doors of Bikram Yoga Central Miami, 5084 Biscayne Blvd., Suite 101-A, opened just in time to support New Year's resolutions targeting health and wellness.
Proprietors Carrie Guzanick and Viviana Villagra said they are pleased to bring the Indian-influenced techniques to Central Miami to help individuals ease stress, improve their breathing, lose weight and develop focus.
"Bikram yoga incorporates a series of 26 postures and two breathing exercises," Guzanick explained. "All classes are 90 minutes and are open to individuals of all abilities - beginners and advanced. "
The newly renovated studio contains 3000 square feet of space with a large 1500 square-foot yoga room.
"We offer 31 classes per week," Guzanick said. "And we have a heated yoga room fully equipped with climate, humidity and odor controls - which allows us to consistently bring fresh oxygen into the room."
Members are also privy to full-service changing rooms - complete with lockers and showers, hairdryers and toiletries.
"Yoga is our passion, and we have chosen to complement yoga with other amenities, including a steam room, massage room, an organic juice bar and a studio shop stocked with yoga accessories." Villagra said. "It's essential to us to create an environment that fosters health and wellness - all in one location."
Villagra added that she is pleased to not only offer yoga to community members as a unique form of expression but also supports the artistic communities through exhibits.
"We invite area artists to display their creative designs in the studio. It's just a pleasant way for them to showcase their work and supports our philosophy of giving back to the community," Villagra said.
Guzanick and Villagra also believe in giving back to the community by hosting monthly donation-only classes.
"All proceeds generated from these classes are donated to charities," Guzanick said.
