Detox Yoga Flow Body & Mind Builders (78 Reade St between Broadway and Church St; 212-587-1099, bodyandmindbuilders.com). $18 per class, monthly unlimited pass $165, new-member two-week unlimited pass $30. Length: 90 minutesType of activity: Yoga and meditation.

What to expect: Eighty minutes of challenging yoga, with a focus on poses that promote cleansing of the circulatory, lymphatic and digestive systems. The class begins with a light warm-up and includes about ten minutes of meditation at the end. How in shape you need to be: Gym regular; yoga experience is helpful but not necessary.The verdict: The class regards pain as a necessary evil to achieve the resulting detox. The workout is hard—challenging enough to leave your muscles sore the day after, but paced just right so you aren’t struggling to keep up. Each movement comes with a specific breathing instruction, which helps you stay focused and relaxed even as the contortions get more involved. The instructor, Ruah Bhay (who teaches this signature class at various studios; see ruahyoga.blogspot.com), provides several options in each pose, so that yogis of all levels can find their way through the practice.Plan to take a hot bath after this one.—Noelle Stout

DETOX YOGA FLOW (c) with Ruah Bhay


Release stress and detox your entire mind & body through intense flowing movement, mindful breathing, guided relaxation. Detox Yoga Flow maps out a simple union of three essential yoga practices (pranayama mindful breathing, asana yoga poses and dhyana meditation) in order to create equanimity in your body and have a peace of mind. Detox Yoga Flow enhances the hypometabolism (oxygen consumption), stimulates the hypothalamus (body’s ability to react/fight or flight response) and improves the nervous system (breathing, digestion, cell rejuvenation). Discover how to guide your mind and body into a personal hour-long retreat. Detox Yoga Flow facilitates you to overcome physical and mental challenges of stress, encourage a healthy body and mental balance. For times, see above schedule.
