Performing yoga can balance the mind and body, but it won’t help save bears at risk for extinction. Unless, of course, if you’re working Spirit Bear Power Yoga. Named after the Spirit Bear Youth Coalition, a non-profit geared towards protecting the snowy white Spirit Bear, the studio simultaneously raises awareness of the animal’s plight while hosting a range of yoga courses led by certified instructors with either 200 or 500 hours of training under their belts.
These nature-minded teachers specialize in heated Vinyasa flow yoga, held in a 95-degree room. The heat, coupled with the graceful poses, works to increase flexibility, deepen stretches, and expose any snowmen secretly masquerading as yogis. Outside their heated sessions, they lead candlelit classes, as well as classes backed by electronica and reggae tunes.
Hot Yoga Tacoma, which is celebrating its 11th year of serving the Tacoma yoga community, features certified instructors leading students with all levels of experience. Hot yoga takes place in the warm confines of a heated room, as movements stimulate the endocrine, nervous, immune, and cardiovascular systems and eliminate toxins by means of sweating. Participants can nurture calm inner spirits while detoxifying as atmospheric warmth soothes joints and muscles and helps to prevent injury and relieve chronic pain. Their studio space offers cooler, more comfortable parts of the room for beginners who prefer to start off slowly, and hosts a variety of time-slots for classes seven days a week. Students gain a sense of camaraderie as they stretch together and sweat together. After classes, guests may freshen up in the studio's large private showers.
Golfers across the handicap spectrum practice bogey-thwarting skills at Natick Golf Learning Center, where PGA- and LPGA-certified pros preside over a multifaceted outdoor practice facility. The center’s outdoor driving range offers 75 artificial and natural-grass hitting mats; two chipping greens, a putting green, and a practice bunker let players practice their finesse shots. During daily lessons, the pros enlist video analysis and other teaching aids to help pupils tackle new skills or correct recent on-course weaknesses.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer ($4,000–$7,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Bikram Yoga Natick works every possible muscle and joint, healing the body and increasing flexibility during hot-yoga classes. Bikram yoga, a fixed series of 26 postures, is performed over the course of 90 minutes in a room heated to 105 degrees. The hot environment enables the body to stretch further and sweat more than would be possible without heat, ridding the body of stiffness, soreness, and excess salts and dihydrogen monoxide.
