First time students must arrive at least 15 minutes early. Be prepared to work hard and sweat. The room is heated to 105 degrees. Women and Men prefer to wear loose fit, light weight athletic clothing that they would feel comfortable wearing for an extensive long distance run. Classes are 90 minutes. Please bring water, yoga mat and a large towel. In case you forget to bring supplies, we also sell water and rent yoga mats and towels. We advise no food 2 hours prior to a class.
At BYSB the classes are challenging, and you will work hard, but we never pressure students to push themselves beyond what is right for their body. We understand that everyone is working with their own physical, and mental challenges, so we encourage students to take short breaks during class and rest when they need to.
The Guest House
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
