Yoga can challenge the body as well as the mind, much like a bicycle possessed by the spirit of an old history professor. Brain and brawn meet with this Groupon.
- $39 for 10 hot yoga classes ($140 value)
Hot yoga classes last 80 minutes each and combine elements of various yoga disciplines, including Bikram and Vinyasa.
After extensive study of Bikram yoga, Sumit Banerjee decided to bring the heat to his own class style—an amalgam of Bikram- and Ashtanga-inspired postures. The Sumits Yoga signature class steers students through deep stretches performed in a toasty studio. Aided by the heat, these movements help students hone both balance and strength.
Though Sumit champions the physical benefits of the practice—muscle toning, detoxification, and the ability to someday fry an egg on one's forehead—the true object of his style is “the simple pleasure and self-reward that comes from quieting our minds." To honor this, he emphasizes introspection and spiritual awareness over perfect technique, allowing guests of any experience level to participate.
