You've asked and we listed! The Summit Area YMCA is bringing back Hot Yoga classes starting in January 2022! But don't worry, you won't have to wait until then to get a class (or two!) in. We are offering two special events for members to try out Hot Yoga and experience the benefits of taking a yoga class in warmer conditions.
Hot yoga offers the benefit of stress reduction, improved strength, and flexibility. With the heat turned up, hot yoga gives your heart, lungs, and muscles an even greater, more intense workout. This sweat-inducing workout was developed by a yogi named Bikram Choudhury. It is done in a room heated to 105°F (41°C) with 40 percent humidity, so make sure to bring a towel!
The Summit Area YMCA also provides a variety of other yoga classes at both the Summit YMCA and Berkeley Heights YMCA, all taught by certified yoga instructors!
Here are just a few classes we offer:
• Hatha Yoga
• Vinyasa Yoga
• Chair Yoga
• Sun Salutation Flow Yoga
• Restorative Yoga
• Les Mills BodyFlow
• and more!

In 1886, we were founded as the Young Men's Christian Association, but today, we are The Y. An association that values, and is made stronger by, its diverse people. We stand for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility — For a better us. We are committed to creating equal opportunity for all regardless of gender, age, disability, income, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religious affiliation. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive culture in which our four core values — responsibility, honesty, caring and respect — are integral to everyday operations.
Each year, as one of the area’s leading 501(c)3 charitable organizations, the Summit Area YMCA serves more than 15,000 individuals with our free and fee-based programs and services in an area spanning the New Jersey communities of Berkeley Heights, Gillette, Millburn, New Providence, Short Hills, Springfield, Stirling and Summit. Our history is rooted in working side-by-side with our neighbors to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
