Bikram Yoga University Village
The lithe instructors at Bikram Yoga University Village guide students through famed yogi Bikram Choudhury's 26 poses and two breathing exercises within a balmy, spa-like studio. During 90-minute routines, thermometers in the CO2-controlled room hit 105 degrees Fahrenheit with 40% humidity and a 0% chance of rain to aid in stretching and in the body's detox potential. The studio's slip-resistant carpet keeps poses firmly intact, and UV lighting helps repel bacteria and class-disrupting vampires. During classes, floor-length mirrors help students perfect their poses, and the facility's well-maintained locker rooms wash away one's hard-earned sweat afterward.
