Long Island Press Releases

Get fit for summer
(Smithtown, N.Y.) On Saturday April 16th 2011, the Bikram “Hot Yoga” experience came to Smithtown in the form of a brand new fully renovated convenient location at 70 East Main Street, Smithtown, NY 11787-2804 (631) 265-YOGA just in time for your Summer workout plans!
“Bringing Bikram Yoga into your life cleanses the body and calms the mind” said Studio Manager and Co-Owner Debbie Burak “The studio is HOT (over 100 degrees) to facilitate deeper stretching, prevent injury, relieve stress and tension and to detoxify the body, giving you a complete system of wellness, restoration and rejuvenation”.
For the unititated, Bikram Yoga was designed to systematically stimulate and restore health to every muscle, joint and organ of the body. Participants are guided through a series of 26 postures, each increasing in physical challenge. Participants of all ages notice an increase in energy, strength, balance, flexibility and mental focus. The body is flushed of toxins, leaving a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.
When asked why the name change from Bikram Yoga Smithtown, Head Instructor and Co-Owner John McFeeley points to the flooring “All Bikram Studios are required by tradition to use carpeting. Instead we have installed an antimicrobial rubber flooring”.
To celebrate their Grand Opening, Smithtown Hot Yoga is offering 1 Free Class to all first time visitors. Get yours by calling them at to make an appointment or by emailing
Also stay tuned for information on a ribbon cutting ceremony and a grand opening event complete with food and music which will both be open to the public and happening in the first few weeks of May 2011.
John continued “The rate at which you will see results with Hot Yoga varies person to person, but as with anything the more time and harder effort you put in will determine what you get out of your workout. See you at the studio!”

Hot yoga is a generic term that may refer to any type of yoga practiced in a heated environment. The theory behind hot yoga is that it helps the body to sweat out toxins while allowing the practitioner to safely come deeper into asanas (poses or stretches). The room temperature for a hot yoga class can range from 30 to 50 C (85 to 122 F). Humidity can range from 40% to 60%. Different methods draw from Hatha, Vinyasa, and other yoga styles. Though the Bikram style was a pioneering force, it is not the only style of hot yoga.
