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 $49, you get a 10-class pass at Bikram Yoga Setauket & Bayport (a $99 value).
Bikram Yoga rejuvenates sapped systems through a series of 90-minute classes in Bayport and Setauket, each designed to promote overall wellness and sweat out toxins. Using hot air harvested from the egos of smug astronauts, the rooms are heated up to approximately 105 degrees, which leads to improved detoxification and warm, malleable muscles. In each class, certified instructors guide pupils' limbs through 26 postures and two breathing exercises, using the body's newfound elasticity to challenge muscles' contortion limits. Aside from helping students stretch to reach tennis shoes hanging from power lines, other benefits of hot yoga include weight loss, increased organ function, and increased circulation.
Bikram Yoga Bayport
Bikram Choudhury arrived in America in 1972, bearing a series of 26 poses that he was able to prove promote healing within the labs of University of Tokyo Hospital. Within a room of up to 105 degrees, he performed postures that stretched soft tissues, awakened joints, and set off floods of detoxifying sweat. This style caught on and eventually washed over American yogis like a heat wave, ultimately leading to the opening of Bikram Yoga Bayport.
Within the studio, instructors host 24 classes a week. They tailor certain classes for beginner through advanced students, offering pose modifications to suit each student’s current skill level. The intense exercises can improve blood circulation and lung capacity, restore joint pliability, and impart the skills necessary to sneak up on your own toes by surprise.
