Yoga is one of the world's oldest forms of exercise, second only to holding the earth on your shoulders. Practice ancient athleticism with today's Groupon: for $25, you get 20 classes at Bikram Hot Yoga Vancouver (a $240 value).
All instructors at Bikram Hot Yoga Vancouver undergo a grueling nine-week Bikram training curriculum prior to coaching students through the 26-pose flow in the studio's heated rooms. The studio's robust seven-day schedule of classes offers morning and evening lessons, each 90-minute session convening in a heated space maintained at a balmy 105 degrees with 40% humidity. The temperate studio climate warms, stretches, and realigns muscles, ligaments, tendons, and exercise pants shrunk in the dryer. Pupils vogue through an elongating sequence of 26 mat and standing postures along with two breathing exercises to relocate oxygenated blood to depleted tissue and forge a more toned body. The studio supplies mats, towels, and water for $2 each, as well as optional stunt doubles to help out during the trickier asanas. Visit their website for more information about how to prepare for your first class.
