At Betsy's Hot Yoga, owner Betsy Jones-Cooper and her experienced team ply stiff bodies with tropic-like temperatures to sculpt strong, lean muscle. Dotted with 12 class types ranging from 60 to 90 minutes each, the studio's schedule provides flows to match any fitness level. Beginning benders head to sultry Bikram sessions to flex through 26 poses designed to safely stretch tight tissues and detoxify the body through intense perspiration, precise alignment, and lectures from household sponges. Instructors turn down the thermostat for comfortably warm Vinyasa classes, helping students harmonize breath and movement through an intense, continuous sequence of balances and bends that connect seamlessly through each inhale and exhale. Meditative Yin yoga keeps seats tethered to the floor and minds from wandering with passive backbends and hip-opening postures, and heart-pounding hot-fusion classes pace energetic Bikram and Vinyasa moves to pop tunes and the occasional Benny Hill sketch.
Prepare for a pivotal business trip abroad or avoid order mix-ups at the local carniceria that result in lugging a case of Ecto Cooler home.

Customers will make great strides in achieving language proficiency over that period, or develop their own hybrid language that’s useful for chatting with plants at home. Classes are capped at 10 students per course, ensuring efficient learning and decreasing back-of-the-room giggling.
At TotalMed Spa, follicles are swiftly banished from their skin cities by a speedy sequence of laser hair removal treatments administered by certified, professional staff.

Sideburns can be stripped away to keep them from growing outward and sideswiping the faces of passersby, and goatees can be permanently shaved by allowing the laser to graze your upper lip and chin. This Groupon also includes a 20% discount off any one of the spa's high-quality pharmaceutical-grade facial products.
