Holding a yoga pose builds strength, discipline, and immunity to motion-sensor devices. Outsmart automatic doors with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get five Bikram yoga classes at Bikram Yoga Miami in Miami Beach (a $125 value).
The skilled instructors at Bikram Yoga Miami elucidate Bikram yoga's more than 40-year-old series of 26 poses to help students tone muscles all over the body and purge them of pent-up toxins. For each of the studio's scheduled classes, instructors crank the studio’s temperature to a toasty 105 degrees, helping foster greater flexibility and thwarting any stalkers escaped from the haunted wax museum. During each 90-minute session, students work to strengthen the bond between body and mind, and help shed unwanted pounds, replacing them with lean muscle. Bikram Yoga Miami rents mats and towels for use during sessions and suggests each stretcher bring his or her own water bottle or old igloo to lick as it melts. The studio’s onsite changing area and shower help refresh on-the-go students after class.
Bikram Yoga Miami
It's hot and humid in Bikram Yoga Miami's studio—the temperatures reach 105 degrees—but not because the air conditioner is broken. Here, the heat and humidity coax muscles to sink deeper into the stretches and cause students to release toxins via beads of sweat during Bikram yoga classes. Certified in the yoga style's 26-posture sequence, the instructors lead students through the poses, helping them increase their strength, flexibility, and range of motion, which comes in handy when one gets the urge to backwards-crabwalk up a wall. Within the balmy studio, sun streams in from the windows and bounces off the full-wall mirrors, illuminating the rows of students as the instructors offer adjustments to the postures to accommodate varying ability levels.
