Though adding heat to yoga turns the exercise routine into a more rigorous workout, adding heat to a doghouse makes it a less effective shelter and a threat to neighbors. Cook your yoga experience with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a week of unlimited yoga (a $20 value) at Bikram Yoga Los Angeles–Covina.
Bikram Yoga Los Angeles–Covina challenges both first-time students and masters of the rejuvenating, body-bending art form. For one week, participants get unlimited access to the roomy studio's warm environment, which is heated to 100–105 degrees to increase the muscle-relaxing and toxin-flushing effects. Experienced instructors guide exercisers through each 90-minute session, which includes 26 postures, two breathing exercises, and a lecture about the origins of aviation. Every class is designed to work all of your body's fibers, threads, and joints, simultaneously cleansing and refueling the body with fresh oxygen. In addition to the full-body sweat-out, customers get a $25 gift certificate that can be used toward any yoga package after the unlimited week concludes.
Bikram Yoga Covina
Within Bikram Yoga of Los Angeles' Covina studio, Dr. Vern Rollins helms a team of certified and passionate instructors who have taught thousands of classes and accrued hundreds of teacher-training hours. As the studio's temperature summits to 105 degrees with 40% humidity, these instructors model and explain poses, encourage deep breathing, and tiptoe around puddles. Thanks to their intimate knowledge of modifications, they capably assist students of all levels. Further, they maintain a flexible schedule of morning and evening classes that are 90 minutes apiece.
Bikram’s 26 poses and two breathing exercises work to engage the entire body with the strength and grace of a full-contact symphony-orchestra performance. Systematically isolating muscle groups one at a time, the poses begin on a mat and work up to a standing position, gradually building stamina and flexibility and jump-starting circulation. As waves of heat loosen limbs enough to make sea-anemone shadow puppets, the body begins to sweat and release toxins. The studio rents yoga mats and has onsite showers.
