From the superheated confine of their 3,000 square foot Ashburn studio, the instructors at Bikram Yoga Ashburn bring the health and wellness benefits of Bikram yoga to the community at large. Here, big windows let the sun in as yogis practice the 26 classic poses of traditional Bikram yoga in 105-degree heat, which helps students stretch further, detoxify their bodies as they sweat, and promotes weight-loss.

Every 90-minute class follows a consistent flow, allowing students to understand poses and move on to mastering them. Students can adjust their bodies to the heat flow before classes or detox after classes with a quick trip to the onsite steam room.

The larger-than-life inflatables at Sport Bounce of Loudoun aren’t just manufactured in the United States—they’re also crafted from commercial-grade, lead-free vinyl. The staff here takes just as much responsibility for visitors’ safety as they do for their entertainment, and oversee cleanliness throughout the 10,000-square-foot space. The bright, open arena fills with children aged 18 months and older who glide down two giant inflatable slides, bound through bounce houses and obstacle courses, dunk on inflatable basketball hoops, and fend off inflatable train-robbers in a kid-powered train. Though some areas only accommodate children, adults are welcome to slide and bounce as they supervise their kids at play.
Fun events, such as pajama and birthday parties, are a staff specialty. During each birthday celebration, they perform all setup and cleanup and provide utensils, birthday candles, and a crown or tiara for the birthday child. Each guest leaves with a complimentary photo of all the partygoers gathered on Sport Bounce's signature oversized red inflatable chair.
