Breaking a sweat not only cools you down during exercise but also rids your body of the disgusting water that's just building up inside you. Sweat it out with this Groupon.
$39 for 10 Yoga Classes or One Month of Unlimited Yoga Classes (Up to $130 Value)
Full-length windows draped in gauzy curtains filter sunlight into Spa Lamar's roomy yoga studio, where classes are held in a supportive, non-competitive environment. Inside, instructors who have mastered the art of nurturing students while simultaneously challenging them lead nine varieties of yoga classes, including basic yoga, which introduces beginners to 15 poses, and power-flow yoga, a fast-paced, fitness-focused class that promotes strength and flexibility. Restorative yoga emphasizes stress relief in the body and mind, and therapeutic yoga is designed to help those with injuries or mobility restrictions get a safe, effective workout. View the full class schedule.
Groupon customers who choose the month of unlimited classes also receive 20 percent off on spa and salon services during their visits.
Heidi Lamar didn't know much about spas when she first purchased Spa Lamar. As she explained to reporters from Skin Inc., "not coming from a spa background, there were things I didn't know I couldn't do." Unhindered by industry conventions or previously fixed ideas, Heidi set about filling her 14,000-square-foot spa with innovative amenities—from a luxurious waterfall-fed pool to an onsite yoga and dance studio. She also cultivates locals instead of the typical resort crowd, banishing cacti from the decor in favor of a Caribbean-style ambiance that, as she told the Arizona Republic, caters to those who already live in Arizona and want to get away to a tropical island. Today, her media-lauded spa is the largest privately owned spa in Scottsdale and is frequented by locals, including members of the Phoenix Suns Dancers.
Before treatments that include massages, acupuncture, mani-pedis, and facials, guests garbed in fluffy complimentary robes duck into the steam room. They sample wholesome lunches and fruit plates from the tropical tea bar and relax in the sauna while waiting for a haircut or warm algae wrap. Sunbathers float around the pool on loungers, whereas others simmer in a bubbling whirlpool. Unlike many traditional spas, Spa Lamar is completely coed, making it an ideal place for couples that are on a first date or permanently trapped together inside a horse costume with a broken zipper.
