Ancient yogis were famed for their ability to live in solitude, to exist in peace with nature, and to turn into raccoons whenever they were near a garbage can. Transform yourself into a beacon of stretchy peace with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a pass for 10 classes at Bikram Yoga, good at both the New Smyrna Beach and Port Orange locations (a $120 value).
Inside Bikram Yoga's balmy, limb-limbering studios, certified instructors shepherd students through 26 challenging postures, deepening each stretch with muscle-melting heat. Sweat seekers can bend, twist, and levitate in the beginning yoga class—a 90-minute session that stimulates organs and neighboring nerves and pushes oxygenated blood throughout the body's intricate system of arteries and subcutaneous chunnels. With the thermostat cranked to a warm, humid, and detoxifying temperature, students narrow their focus to sweat out their toxins and forge new, flexible frontiers while maintaining rhythmic, deep relaxation breathing. Aside from empowering the mind, muscles, and soul, Bikram classes provide proven benefits, such as assisting in injury recovery, tissue regeneration, illness relief, and the tackling of rabid elephants of discontentedness.

Hot air swirls around Bikram Yoga’s studio, heating limbs and relaxing tense muscles as students sink deeply into their practice’s 26 postures. During 90-minute sessions, a Bikram-certified instructor leads classes through a consistent routine of standing and seated poses mixed with two breathing exercises. In the space’s equatorial temperatures, students of all fitness levels burn calories, strengthen muscles, and eject perspirable toxins as instructors offer encouragement and personalized modifications. In addition to bringing a yoga mat and towel from home, students should prepare for class by drinking enough water to float a flock of rubber duckies.
