Want to Workout, Relax, Detox and Stretch Out All at the Same Time? Then Try Hot Yoga!
Maggie Salomon started dancing as a young girl. After 20 years of dance training, she then moved in personal training and group fitness instruction. She managed gyms and dance centers but her career came to a screeching halt when she was in badly injured in a car accident. Determined to move again, Maggie stumbled upon hot yoga which healed her body, mind and soul. And when you are all relaxed and positive energy flowing in your body, you could then play 오즈포탈 and increase your chances of winning.
“After hot yoga and physical therapy, I was better,” Salomon said. “After that, I wanted to give those in my community the ability to heal themselves.” Following 4 years of a consistent and passionate hot yoga practice, Maggie opened Hot Yoga Paradise in her hometown of Bayside, Queens.
Serving the northeast section of Queens, Hot Yoga Paradise is located at 213-01 Northern Blvd. in Bayside, near the intersection of Northern and Bell boulevards.
All hot yoga classes are 90 minutes long and the studio offers over 15 hot yoga classes a week. The heat, Salomon said, relaxes muscles, which increases flexibility. “It gives you mental clarity and reduces stress,” Salomon said. “It increases blood circulation. You can burn about 800 calories in a class.”
A wide range of people take classes at Hot Yoga Paradise, where Salomon is also an instructor. “We have 16- to 70-year-olds from all nationalities and who are all shapes,” she said.
Hot Yoga classes at Hot Yoga Paradise carry on the traditional Calcutta India lineage by following a series of twenty-six Hatha Yoga postures that will give you a total body workout both internally and externally while at the same time bringing vital balance and well being. Just like Calcutta, India the room is heated to a temperature of 103 degrees enabling you to flush out toxins through perspiration.
Also available are Hot Vinyasa classes, which follow the ancient system of Ashtanga Yoga lineage where every posture flows into and out of sun salutations. It is a challenging workout that targets the core and upper body.
I stepped into a Hot Vinyasa class with Hot Yoga Paradise’s Senior Teacher Daniela Crocchiola on Saturday morning at 9:30. My goal was to work on my tight hips and to get a workout. Daniela got her 200 hour hot yoga certification with Senior Bikram teacher Jimmy Barkan and has also completed teacher trainings with Seane Corn, Beryl Bender Birch, Bar Method and Mat Pilates. Her class is fun and challenging for any level. She worked with me thru class to help me with modifications and she is passionate about alignment, safety and stability. At the end of the 90 minute class, I was drenched in sweat, and completely exhausted. The non stop movment, strength training with body weight and constant stretching left me yearning for a shower and nap. It was an awesome experience!
In addition to hot yoga and hot vinyasa, Salomon offers a variety of other classes such as Zumba, tai chi, pre-natal yoga, belly dancing, and “goddess” dancing, which is a workout involving belly and jazz dance movements.
Whatever class you take at Hot Yoga Paradise, consistency will create a physical, mental and spiritual harmony that will be felt in all areas of the practitioner’s life.
