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 $39, you get 10 yoga classes and a mat rental for the first class at Bikram Yoga Asheville (up to a $120 value).
Bikram Yoga Asheville’s well-wrought instructors help strengthen and lengthen newcomers and experienced yogis alike by leading them through a series of 26 different postures performed in a room heated to 105 degrees. Heating the studio promotes safe stretching by warming up muscles and joints from the inside out, making them as pliable as pushover parents covered in play-doh. Increased heat also boosts cardiovascular output and opens up pores to flush toxins out of the body. Each unique posture is designed to strengthen specific muscles, ligaments, and joints while simultaneously stimulating organs, glands, and nerves in order to encourage healthy circulation. Bikram yoga combines concentration and self-control to both reduce stress and vastly improve Scrabble scores.
Natural light streams in through the floor-to-ceiling windows that comprise one wall of the studio, which is bounded on the other side by a full wall of mirrors. New students should arrive 15 minutes early and bring a large towel and water bottle for wet-towel-whipping tournaments, although free alkaline ionized water is available. Bikram Yoga Asheville holds classes seven days a week, including morning, afternoon, and evening sessions; check the schedule for a complete list of days and times.
Hot Yoga Asheville
Hot Yoga Asheville’s new 5,000-square-foot facility—equipped two large yoga studios, six showers, custom antimicrobial yoga flooring and far-infrared Radiant Heat panels with automatic CO2-sensored fresh air exchange—does as much to detoxify the environment as it does its human visitors. While the latter work their way through the 26 original traditional Bikram poses or Power flow and other yoga classes on biodegradable mats, they are surrounded by formaldehyde-free insulation and air purified by a hydroxyl generator, which helps eliminate odors. HYA employs over 25 experienced yoga instructors to span the wide variety of classes and levels of practitioners.
