Star athletes thrive during the peak of heated competition, which is why most Super Bowls are held in volcanoes. Stretch the limits of your limbs with today's Groupon: for $25, you get five yoga classes at Bikram Yoga Ashburn in Ashburn (a $125 value).
Bikram Yoga Ashburn's expert instructors, well-versed in the techniques of Bikram Choudhury, coach students through a series of uplifting asanas and breathing exercises inside a 1,600-square-foot studio heated up to 104 degrees. Classes populate the balmy studio with an average of 10–15 students of all skill levels, allowing instructors to modify poses based on individual pace and number of legs. During the rejuvenating 90-minute session, yogis deeply stretch sinews through a sequence of 26 asana poses, such as balancing in an eagle pose and back bending into a camel pose. A duo of Pranayama poses centers on conscious breathing, and heated temperatures help to increase blood flow and stimulate pores to sweat out pent-up toxins and antiquated stashes of Crystal Pepsi.
Pre-class, sinew stretchers can rent or buy mats, towels, totes, and water bottles at Bikram Yoga Ashburn’s on-site shop. Following the sweat session, yogis can refresh with complimentary body wash and lotion in the on-site showers or step into a calming steam room to keep muscles as pliable as a barbell made of string cheese.
