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 $32, you get a five-class pass to Bikram Yoga Boise (a $65 value). Today’s deal is valid at both Bikram Yoga East and Bikram Yoga West locations.
The dedicated yogis at Bikram Yoga Boise lead eager apprentices as they twist and tone their way through the original hot-yoga philosophy developed by pose proficient Bikram Choudhury. Performed in a studio heated to approximately 105 degrees Fahrenheit, Bikram yoga includes a series of 26 stretching postures and two breathing techniques that work together to lengthen limbs and make blowing out birthday candles more interesting. During the 90-minute class, students safely execute poses that make muscles, fascia, and connective tissue more moldable, resulting in deep core penetration and increased flexibility. Aside from better bendability, the benefits of Bikram practice can include stress and pain relief, faster fat burning, and an increase in energy levels, as well as improvements in both balance and coordination. Surges of sweat sweep toxins away in their current and siphon them out of your body, while capillaries open to increase oxygen flow and promote the removal of bodily waste and spare batteries. Bikram Yoga Boise offers classes seven days a week, so check out the calendar to see what class times best suit your schedule.
Boise Hot Yoga
Under the guidance of new ownership, the instructors at Boise Hot Yoga have no problem welcoming beginners to the practice. After all, each of them remembers the experience of their own first lesson. Some took part in a 60-day class challenge and some simply saw it as a new adventure in fitness, but all of them fell in love almost immediately with the benefits inherent in sweating and stretching.
It helps that the style accommodates all skill levels. Because students perform the 26 poses to the best of their ability, they needn't have any experience or a life-sized rubber stand-in to begin taking classes. The postures build off each other to stretch muscles, ligaments, and other tissues throughout the body as the surrounding heat in the studio—up to 105 degrees—makes them more pliable. The warmth also boosts circulation and the release of sweat, which helps to purge the body of built up toxins. As practitioners become accustomed to the poses, they can experience therapeutic benefits such as increased strength and range of motion. Boise Hot Yoga will be opening a second location in September, 2016.
