$39 for 20 Bikram Yoga Classes ($300 Value)
During each 90-minute class, instructors lead practitioners of all experience levels through a series of 26 postures and two breathing exercises. The intense heat inside the 1,700-square-foot studio can help melt muscles into deep stretches and expel toxins from the body. The schedule includes classes seven days a week. Although the instructors advise students to bring their own mat and towel from home, the studio does provide rentals as well. Students have 30 days after their first class to complete all the classes.
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.
