Star athletes thrive during the peak of heated competition, which is why most Super Bowls are held in volcanoes. Stretch the limits of your limbs with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 10-class yoga pass to Dragonfly Hot Yoga in Fitchburg (up to a $150 value).
Dragonfly Hot Yoga's up to 105-degree studio hosts challenging classes designed to forge in students the strength, focus, and depth of character evinced by the studio's namesake arthropod. The studio's attentive instructors guide students through a schedule of slow and accelerated flow classes from the moment pupils unfurl their brought-from-home mats across the studio floor. During sessions, students strike a series of Vinyasa poses, moving from one to the next with smooth, balance-challenging movements that tie sequences together tighter than two marionettes in a washing machine. Instructors dial down the heat and string together long-held poses in Dragonfly Yin sessions, and Dragonfly Fire classes' hot, 26-posture sequence tests pupils' resolve. Students can combine the best of fire and flow with a fusion class that marries great music with lots of sweating, just like Elvis' unreleased video for "Blue Suede Turtleneck."
Confirmed to be the "only heated yoga facility in the Verona/Fitchburg area" by Connect Fitchburg, Dragonfly Hot Yoga's sultry chambers allow musculature to sink into deep postures and find enhanced flexibility with a lower injury risk. Inside the studio, breathable yoga flooring absorbs excess moisture, and red beams arch overhead like an improperly laundered rainbow.
Though Dragonfly Hot Yoga sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Megan Ryan Kaiser doesn’t remember her first hot-yoga session as a transcendent, transformative moment. She recalls the feeling of intimidation that almost sent her packing. Over time, the class did enhance her life as she felt the benefits throughout her transition, but it might not have without the support of a welcoming community of students and instructors. She struggled to find such an affirming place to pose after moving to the Madison area from Los Angeles. Instead of continuing her search, she decided to build the community she sought by launching Dragonfly Hot Yoga.
Students of all shapes, sizes, and skill levels flock to the studio’s award-winning classes, which range from beginner-friendly Intro to Yoga sessions to Advanced Flow routines filled with challenging inversions and arm balances. Spacious classrooms let students move freely, and flooring specifically designed for hot-yoga classes repels sweat and odors. During most yoga classes, the room’s temperature rises to 85–105 degrees, which promotes flexibility and toxin release. The instructors also lead traditional fitness classes, including a boot-camp-style workout filled with resistance training, calisthenics, and plyometrics. Before and after classes, students bond over tea and books in a lounge that’s as cozy as a fireplace wearing a hand-knitted sweater. To help busy parents integrate yoga into their routine, the studio also offers childcare during many morning classes and private yoga sessions, which can be scheduled at a convenient time. Dragonfly Hot Yoga | Barre also offers non-heated yoga and barre-amped classes in their new Studio Mild space.
