Inner peace is hard to come by, requiring complex negotiations between spleen and kidney. Find harmony more easily with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a 20-class pass to Beyond Hot Yoga in Laguna Niguel (a $180 value).
In a 75- to 105-degree studio, Beyond Hot Yoga's band of dedicated yoga instructors lead more than 80 yoga and aerobic classes each week to accommodate students with diverse abilities and fitness goals. The studio’s robust schedule of classes claim inspiration from the balmy and challenging Bikram yoga style and accommodates newbies by infusing Bikram's 26 challenging postures with flowing Vinyasa movements set to motivating music. Students can prepare earthly vessels for a long weekend of helping friends move piano collections during Hot Yoga Sculpt classes, where free weights add extra resistance to Vinyasa-style postures to help tone muscles while detoxifying temperatures banish impurities to sweaty floor puddles. Mat-based Pilates classes increase flexibility, range of motion, and core strength with efficient floor exercises to restore balance to the entire body, and Zumba students follow simple dance steps set to energizing Latin beats to burn calories and hone wedding-reception material.
Beyond Hot Yoga's spacious facility provides ample locker space and showers for attendees wearing sweat-retaining, non-super-hero-grade spandex before leaving the studio. Students can bring along their own mat, towel, and water to each class, and feel free to leave perfume and vampire-repelling garlic necklaces at home to avoid bothering sensitive downward-facing dogs.
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.
