$25 for Five Yoga Classes ($100 Value)
A robust class schedule features daily 90-minute sweat sessions performed in celebrated yogi Bikram Choudhury's signature style. The series of 26 postures and two breathing exercises is performed in a hot and humid room to help practitioners of all experience levels melt muscles into deep stretches and expel toxins from the body.
Pure Om Hot Yoga
Formerly known as Bikram Yoga Bethesda, Pure Om Hot Yoga's studio sports a steely gray palette, exposed ducts, and bright, natural lighting that provide a cool counterpoint to the heated intensity of its Bikram yoga classes. The new owner, Siri Om, brings extensive experience to her teaching style, as she began studying Bikram yoga in 1994 at the Yoga College of India in LA, and has been teaching Bikram yoga worldwide since 2001. Though rigorous with its balmy heat and strict 26-posture series, the 90-minute classes are open to students of all experience levels and are taught by a team of Bikram-certified instructors. The 4,700-square-foot facility boasts not just an expansive practice space outfitted with a brand new, medical-grade linoleum floor and a natural-gas-fired heating system but also shower and locker-room amenities that make changing back into street clothes or cartoon-character costumes comfortable and efficient.
