Yoga, like starting a campfire or interrogating your roommate over missing lunchmeat, is more effective when performed at higher temperatures. Lean meat from your bones with today's Groupon: for $25, you get 10 classes at Beyond Hot Yoga in Laguna Niguel.
Boasting more than 14,000 square feet of modernly styled movement spa, Beyond Hot Yoga hosts 39 varieties of hot yoga classes and another 43 aerobic and nonheated classes to maintain all muscle groups. Select from dozens of 60-minute or longer classes, and contort limbs more easily than any hopeful twist tie could. During each hot room yoga class, temperatures range between 75–105 degrees, ensuring deeper detoxification and muscle malleability with decreased injury risk. Beginners may start with a Power Yoga 1 class or beginner Vinyasa flow to mold themselves into bendable beams exuding inner strength. Those riding rockier fitness roads may opt for a spinning class, where the shifting resistance of a stationary bike burns muscles hotter than air itself. Traditional aerobics classes abound in the form of mat pilates, body pump, and infectious Zumba dance. Class times skew from early morning through evening.
Following each session, step into Beyond Hot Yoga's spacious locker room area. Unwind post class in the adjoining steam room surrounded by some acquaintances and strangers talking about muscles or the day ahead.
Beyond Hot Yoga
Just as the thermostat inside Beyond Hot Yoga’s studio fluctuates between 75 and 105 degrees, the classes themselves include a wide range of poses tailored to various levels of experience. Calories and inhibitions melt away with each successive pose in Bikram- and Vinyasa-style yoga classes that put students in touch with their bodies through continuous stretching. Aerobics offerings such as Zumba and boot camps suit different fitness tastes, favoring energetic movements instead of meditative poses.
Though the studio hosts a diverse slate of lessons, an undercurrent of camaraderie remains a constant. Instructors emphasize serenity and fellowship both inside and outside classes, making it easier to achieve inner peace by hosting rambunctious youngsters in a childcare room and holding donation-based sessions whose proceeds benefit South African orphanages.
Guests can also harness a sense of inner calm through the studio's various wellness treatments. Skincare services, massages, and custom nutritional tips refresh physiques, and a stop in the women-only steam room can help detoxify the body and shrink oversize yoga mats.
