Unlike hot-yoga students, cold-yoga practitioners have difficulty touching their toes or thawing them free of frozen sticky mats. Embrace the heat with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a 10-class pass to Bikram Yoga Avondale (a $120 value).
Bikram Yoga Avondale's team of certified Bikram instructors lead 90-minute, heated-yoga classes. The studio’s schedule of classes take place in a 105-degree studio, the 26-posture practice helps even the most rusted of tin men melt muscles into deep, healing stretches and empty the body's secret stash of unhealthy toxins. Classes commence with two breathing exercises to center squirmy spirit animals and acclimate the body to the practice space’s intense heat before a series of standing and seated poses helps students improve strength, flexibility, and balance. Each posture helps to temporarily decrease blood flow to specific areas of the body, sending in a rush of freshly oxygenated blood to joints, organs, and limbs when yogis unfold from folds and twists, unblocking the tiny traffic jams of hemoglobin.
To help students unwind before and after relaxing stress sessions, the studio's spacious facility boasts equipped with immaculate showers and locker rooms for men and women and a welcoming reception area where limber cobras can gather and exchange postworkout recipes for whole mice.
Bikram Yoga Avondale
Although Bikram Yoga Avondale’s classes always cycle through the same 26-pose sequence, the practice is anything but boring. The repetition gives practitioners a pretty clear point of reference when it comes to tracking their progress over time, and the addition of sweltering heat challenges even the most adroit yogi. The heat of the Bikram studio boosts the heart rate, so the sessions function as cardio workouts, and the poses stretch and strengthen every major muscle group. Some even maintain that it boosts the immune system and improves focus. Since its inception, its grab-bag of benefits has attracted the admiration of high-profile adherents such as Shirley MacLaine and President Nixon.
The instructors at Bikram Yoga Avondale infuse each lesson with their personality, adding a touch of variety. The new facility, which also offers massage services, features a state of the art heating and ventilation system, new waterproof and anti-microbial carpets, along with larger changing rooms and additional shower facilities. To keep boat-loads of fresh oxygen coursing through circulatory systems, the staff deep cleans the facility with ardor, and deploys a state-of-the-art ozone air purifier.
