From Napoleon's great crab walk through Europe to J. Robert Oppenheimer's discovery of nuclear fission by kissing his own elbow, victory has always gone to the most flexible. Overpower enemies with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a five-class pass to Bikram Yoga Baltimore (an $80 value). The pass does not expire as long as you take your first class at either the Cockeysville location or the new Harbor East location within the next six months.
Bikram Yoga classes are 90 minutes long and feature a series of 26 challenging yoga poses and breathing techniques that are performed in a 105-degree heated room. The heightened temperature allows for a deeper workout, burns fat, helps prevent injury, and cleanses the body and mind by flushing out toxins and lukewarm feelings you've had about coworkers and crustless bread. The classes are designed for all ages and skill levels and aim to gently exercise every muscle, tendon, joint, ligament, organ, and gland while improving your blood flow. Bikram Yoga is not only an effective form of exercise, but it can also reduce stress and symptoms of chronic illness.
Bikram Yoga Baltimore's impassioned staff is trained and certified in the art of Bikram yoga, and they will stretch, twist, and warm your muscles until the scent of baking challah wafts from the surface of your salty skin. Reservations aren't required to attend Bikram classes, so check the website for both locations' complete schedules and just drop-in on your nimblest whims.
Bikram Yoga Baltimore
For Bikram Yoga Baltimore's Emily and Eddie Garner, yoga isn't just exercise. It's a dance that purifies the body and silent song that stirs the soul. Drawing upon intensive study with Bikram yoga's founder and Emily's years of ballet training, the couple fills 90-minute classes with 26 graceful poses that stretch and strengthen the entire body. Calibrated for both beginners and advanced students, workouts boost circulation, which can help ease chronic pain and oust pent-up toxins. Each studio is now equipped with anti-microbial flooring and the Cockeysville women's locker rooms boast recent renovations. In addition to hosting classes, each studio rents mats and sells energy boosters such as vitamin-fortified water and Emergen-C supplements.
