Bikram yoga became popular after a study concluded that the high heat was the main reason grandpas normally emerge from gym saunas feeling relaxed, limber, and scantily-clad. Experience the benefits of warmth without wishing for a blindfold with today's deal: for $30, you get one month of unlimited Bikram yoga classes at Bikram Yoga Seattle (a $135 value). Your Groupon is redeemable at two locations, in Fremont and West Seattle.
Bikram yoga consists of 26 poses and two breathing exercises that center, strengthen, and lengthen every muscle with the muscle-melting powers of a 100-plus-degree room. It's designed to cater to all skill levels, allowing practitioners to choose the rigorousity of each workout. Sweat out toxins and enjoy mind-expanding stretches while breathing deeply; afterward, you'll leave focused, with a cleansed, centered, and worry-free glow. Several steamy sessions are scheduled daily in the elegant studios, and each space accommodates up to 75 students—enough space for family reunions and reality-dating-show contestants.
Bikram Yoga Seattle was founded by a 30-year Bikram veteran, and each limber member of the staff has completed the rigorous nine-week program led by Bikram yoga founder Bikram Choudhury, which involves besting him in a fiddle contest. Rental towels and mats are available at both studios, and free filtered water will help withered students hydrate their sweat-purged pores after the 90-minute workout. Showers are available at the Fremont location so that you can head to work afterward without fear of leaving a sweat puddle in your cubicle.
Valid for new clients only, or members who have been inactive for 6 months or more.

Bikram Yoga Seattle
The certified instructors at Bikram Yoga Seattle lead students through a tapestry of restorative postures within heated studios that help loosen limbs, increase circulation, and incite detoxifying sweats. During each session, they'll explain and demonstrate the physical and potentially spiritual nuances of each of the 26 poses.
The studio boasts antifungal and antimicrobial smooth-surface flooring that helps cultivate a clean and hygienic atmosphere in which to practice. The materials are 100% recyclable and made by Mondo, the same company that supplied the flooring for the 2012 London Olympics.
