Yoga emphasizes seamless transition between poses, a skill set adopted by the Navy to teach cursive flag semaphore to its sailors. Spell out serene stances with today's Groupon: for $29, you get 10 Bikram yoga classes at Bikram Yoga Granite Bay (up to a $130 value).
At Bikram Yoga Granite Bay, students work and sweat through 90-minute classes in a spacious, heated studio. Experienced instructors lead yogis through a sequence of 26 postures designed to challenge students' strength, balance, and focus, as well as two relaxing deep-breathing exercises to fog up the studio's wall-size mirrors. Adding to the benefits of Bikram yoga's muscle-toning extended workout, the studio's high temperature—around 100 degrees—prepares the muscles for deeper, more flexible stretches while improving circulation and fostering a healthy, toxin-flushing sweat. Bikram Yoga Granite Bay hosts several classes throughout the day, including 60-minute noontime classes for students taking a quick lunge break or practicing their sundial poses.
Though Bikram Yoga Granite Bay sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
