Twenty-six poses. 90 minutes. 105 degrees. This is what yogis can expect from a hot—or Bikram—yoga class at Bikram Yoga of Albuquerque, a studio that follows the teachings of the practice’s founder, Bikram Choudhury. They keep the studio to such a high temperature in order to help students sweat out toxins and to further their flexibility. As for yoga itself, it helps practitioners achieve a sense of mental and physical well-being that is said to strengthen determination, self-control, faith, concentration, and patience. In addition to the east-side location, which has been around for ten years, Bikram Yoga of Albuquerque invites yogis to its second location on the west side.
Body pampers and tones physiques with spa services and fitness training and tends to wee ones with childcare services and sating hungers at an organic café. Aestheticians buff visages with organic, Ecocert-certified Naturopathica products during custom facials and tighten sagging skin until it's smooth enough to host a microscopic roller derby with microdermabrasion, microcurrents, and derma-rollers. Yoga and dance classes invite limbs to bend and shake, working up an appetite sated by the café’s menu, which pleases raw and vegan palates as well as source-conscious carnivores. After a massage or personal-training session, clients pick up eco-friendly fashions at an on-site boutique, where sustainable, fair-trade garments give patrons something to wear to a dinner party at Mother Nature's house.
When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. Adele Fridman, founder of MetaBody, created a real-life version of that ticket with her MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
