Yoga is unique in that it is the only medieval physical-fitness art that does not involve firing crossbows at a Grendel. Bend and stretch sans bloodshed with today's Groupon: for $24, you get 10 yoga, Pilates, and fitness classes at Vegas Hot! Yoga and Pilates (a $160 value).
At Vegas Hot! Yoga and Pilates, owner King Rollins wields his knowledge as a chiropractor and a certified yoga instructor to concoct hot-yoga and Pilates sequences that challenge bodies and reduce the risk of injury. The 7,000-square-foot space houses three studios with PEM flooring that is easily sanitized and serves as a stage for more than 120 hot or temperate classes each week. In 60- or 90-minute Venus classes, students strike traditional Hatha yoga poses in 105-degree heat intended to detoxify the body and lend muscles the flexibility of a cat's schedule. Hot Pilates hones solid cores and kick-starts circulation as students lengthen limbs amid temperatures of up to 95 degrees.
Fitness classes at Vegas Hot! Yoga and Pilates similarly come in regular and heated varieties. Students in kettlebell classes swing weights by the handle to bulk up muscles and hone tea-pouring skills, and Barefoot Boot Camp bakes yoga, Pilates, and kettlebell workouts to 95 degrees as it helps to strengthen the body's core.

Dr. King Rollins discovered the healing effects of yoga after three decades of competing in marathons and ultramarathons (100K) left severe wear on his muscles and joints. His experience as a chiropractor, certified Bikram instructor, and Olympic coach guides his transformative-posture sequences, which are designed to challenge entire physiques and reduce the risk of injury. With a team of certified instructors by his side, he implements these foundations in more than 120 hot or temperate classes each week, one class for each second it takes to lick an envelope in super-slow motion. The 7,000-square-foot space houses three studios with P.E.M. flooring that is easily sanitized and serves as a stage for hot-yoga, Pilates, and fitness classes, which include power Vinyasa and boot-camp classes.
Dr. Rollins also harnesses his 23 years of chiropractic experience as he performs complimentary injury evaluations and yoga-posture modifications onsite, ensuring that his clients don't strain wounded muscles. Before and after class, guests can visit the studio's smoothie shop, Fresh Mama's, to grab a healthy smoothie blended with fresh fruits and vegetables or a hearty salad or wrap.
