Bikram Out – Inverted Elephant In

Please help us select a new logo -

Yes, we are getting a new name & logo. 
Yes, we will still have hot yoga classes as usual. 
Yes, we will offer NON-HEATED yoga classes! 

Dear Yogis and Yoginis,

This has been a long time coming and now it is official. We are making a lot of changes at the studio in the next coming months.

At the beginning of 2015, our name will officially change from “Bikram Yoga SpaceCoast” to the “Inverted Elephant”.

There are many reasons for this change. The main reason we are switching is that we can offer other yoga styles in our community yoga studio as any yoga studio or business should be able to do, without restrictions forced in an affiliate agreement. Having said this, I am looking for teachers that can teach Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Pilates, Tai Chi or other forms of non-impact exercise. If you know of a good teacher that you love taking a class from that is looking for a “home”, please forward this email to them.

I am very excited to make this announcement. Making this decision gives us flexibility and freedom to try to better accommodate students personal preferences. We will continue to offer hot yoga classes, Donna and I remain teaching them as usual. However we will be adding other non-heated classes. (On that note, Jonathan our Ashtanga teacher will be coming to the studio later than anticipated he is traveling to Japan this month).

The studios mission is to help build a community of happy, healthy and fulfilled people where everyone is loved and everyone wins. We want to empower you in finding happiness, health and fulfillment by offering

  • a variety of yoga classes,
  • an organic juice bar,
  • a far infrared sauna
  • an organic coop for groceries
  • workshops, meditation, and more

I really look forward to turning up the knob on the yoga studio volume dial. With your help we can make the studio a great space for relaxation and healing. It is going to take a little time to implement the changes so please be patient, if you have questions you can email me (bea at bikramyogaspacecoast.com) or find me at the studio. I will do my best to keep you updated throughout the process. Don’t worry, the hot yoga is here to stay (as it has in the past), we are only adding new options and services.

But first, let’s pick a new logo design – CLICK HERE TO PUT YOUR FIVE CENTS IN!

thank you for your time – Love & Light to you

Yoga routine getting boring?

Is your yoga routine getting boring? Are you afraid of trying something new, even if it’s only slightly different from what you know. Do you think you are not good enough, skinny enough or strong enough to try yoga or a different yoga?

What if I tell you that we have a yoga series that makes you feel just as good as the Hot Yoga but is practiced in a regular temperature room? The benefits are just as therapeutic as in Hot Yoga and the classes are fun – we get to try postures we would usually not consider – in a safe environment that is friendly, relaxed and supportive. Don’t judge until you try. Below is a sample video from Tony Sanchez explaining about the Core yoga and its benefits. He used to call it Challenge I through Challenge IV but know we call it the Master Class – because that is what it is. Saturdays we practice 40 of the 84 classic Asanas from the Bishnu Gosh Yoga College of India.

Class is every Saturday at 10:00 a.m., mark your calender and set your alarm. See you on the mat!

Mediation Class this Thursday 7:30 p.m.

You are invited to join us for a mediation/relaxation session. This class is good for you if you would like to learn more about meditation or want to deepen your mediation practice, meditate with like minded people, or just get started with meditation.

Discover the empty space (sunyata) or the not-self being. Still wrangling with the monkey mind? Get besides yourself and learn to observe those monkeys without judgment. Not sure you can do it? Give it a try under the guidance of Ray Rivera, a long time yoga student and Mahayana Buddhist practitioner.

Meditation affects you in many ways, you will gain better focus, have less anxiety, improve your memory and you can become more creative and compassionate.

Bring a friend, a favorite sits pillow, chair or cushion for the one hour Zen Meditation practice.

It’s Official! SUP Yoga is here!

Now added to our schedule, is SUP Yoga on the Indian River.

Thought practicing yoga on land is challenging? Try SUP Yoga. Actually it’s not that hard and we practice postures that can be safely performed on the SUP board. Our boards are wide, stable and our instructor is SUP and Yoga certified. This is a fun and relaxing class you’ll sure enjoy.

Weather permitting, classes will be held on Mondays at 11:00 a.m. across from the yoga studio at Rotary Riverfront Park. There are no walk-ins! You must reserve your spot online or by phone at least 24hrs in advance. All you need is a bottle of water and flexible yoga/outdoor clothes that you are comfortable with and could (not necessarily but possibly) get wet in.

No prior paddleboarding experience necessary! Classes are 60 minutes long and cost $35 per single class or $300 for a 10 class card. Call 321.749.9642 for more information or sign up online clicking here
