WE PRACTICE EVERYWHERE
e84 VIRTUAL STUDIO
Virtual classes offer a sense of community, support, and motivation when practicing outside of the studio. For this reason we have created an online platform. You can join one of our classes from anywhere in the world. Our network of teachers is global, we are offering classes that work for your time zone. Our schedule features 26&2, e84 Intermediate, 84 Asanas, Backbending classes in many time zones, Yin, and Ashtanga. Drop-in anytime through Boulder Bikram Yoga (my family’s studio since 1994).
New circumstances always require us to grow and challenge ourselves. Recently because of Covid-19 yoga studios around the world have been closed. This has challenged us to find our peace amidst chaos. As yogis we practice being inwardly equanimous, so that we can focus our attention on stillness and breathing regardless of what is happening around us. If we can practice with any conditions (cold, hot, home, studio, etc.) then we can take ownership for our practice and our lives, so that nothing can take our peace. We have been preparing for this moment.
Our virtual classes have been well received throughout the shutdown due to COVID-19 so we intend to keep them going. In some cases we will live-stream classes that are happening in our studios, but the large majority of our classes feature a teacher specifically dedicated to the online students. Further, our online platform offers live classes only. None of our classes are pre-recorded. When practicing with us, you will always have the presence of a certified instructor.

26&2 (90 min)
Our inspiring teachers will guide you through 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises for 90 minutes. This is the traditional hot yoga sequence known to the world as “Bikram Yoga”. This practice is heart-pumping, low impact, and challenging. It systematically works your whole being, strengthening the mind, therapeutically restoring the body, and developing awareness, focus, and concentration. This practice is the foundation on which the entire e84 Yoga system is built.
e84 Intermediate Class (90 minutes)
84 Asanas (2 hours)
84 is a sacred number that represents physical self-mastery and high yogic consciousness. This practice typically takes 120 minutes and is a fixed sequence that gives students the opportunity to practice skills like lotus, handstands, leg-over-the-head movements, and deep backbends. Participants should be familiar with the 26&2 series, have a regular practice, and have good practice habits.
Backbending (30 minutes)
Yin (1 hour)
Yin Yoga is a restorative, slow, and meditative practice. Yin focuses on the connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and joints with a relaxed mind and body. The relaxing postures are held for several minutes to allow the connective tissue to respond. It facilitates the removal of deep blockages to energy flow through the body’s meridians.
Ashtanga (2 hours)

MEMBERSHIPS FOR STUDIO
Our Virtual studio provides 100 LIVE classes per month and is a collaboration between many individuals and several studios across the globe. This means several yoga communities are simultaneously offering our online classes to their students. If you have a yoga business and would like to share our classes with your students, you can pass on the links to these classes by purchasing a studio membership.
With a studio membership you are given the links for all classes two weeks ahead of time and you are able to distribute these links to your paying members. We support the businesses that uphold the spaces where our communities practice. We are proud to be able to provide studios with an online program that can generate a revenue for your business.
If you are in alignment with the teachings of e84 yoga and you are currently offering online classes through your yoga business, consider collaborating with us. If you don’t currently have an online offering, you can now use our platform and easily create one as an added value for your existing members. A studio membership requires an automatic monthly payment, but it does not require a contract and you may cancel anytime.
The e84 team is working hard to make the e84 Intermediate Class and the 84 Class available in studios and online. We have spent many hours volunteering our time to support studios during the COVID-19 closures. At the same time, we have postponed several e84 events and trainings. Although studios have been closed and events have been postponed, we continue to work as before. Therefore we are accepting support from our community and from those who appreciate and benefit from our work to sponsor our efforts. Your contribution enables us to continue to give generously of ourselves and of our time. Any amount that is on your heart to give will be gratefully appreciated. No amount is too big or too small.
