Yoga, like meat loaf and Meat Loaf, is best enjoyed hot or on a motorcycle. Melt away bad attitudes with today's Groupon: for $599, you get one year of unlimited Bikram yoga classes at Bikram Yoga Fairfax (a $1,250 value).
Attentive instructors lead a robust schedule of 90-minute Bikram classes designed to keep clients on track with healthy New Year's resolutions. Students of all fitness levels flow through a series of 26 postures and breathing exercises designed to increase flexibility, relieve stress, and prevent injury. According to Women's Health magazine, Bikram yoga classes may burn up to 636 calories per hour. Bikram Yoga Fairfax's 105-degree studio helps mat mavens work toward firmer, more malleable muscles, providing a deeper stretch and helping the body rid itself of dangerous toxins through convenient sweat droplets, leaving room for the more enjoyable toxins of the weekend. Yearly passes grant visitors unlimited access to more than 30 weekly Bikram sessions that start as early as 6 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. To prepare for sessions, each student totes along plenty of drinking water, a yoga mat, and two towels to soak up sweat and puddles of former couch potatoes. Instructors recommend wearing light, comfortable clothing, and coming to class with an empty stomach.
Pure Om Fairfax
Pure Om Fairfax, formerly known as Bikram Yoga Fairfax, sports an earthly orange palette, state of the art yoga studio, and bright, natural lighting that provide a cool counterpoint to the heated intensity of its Bikram yoga classes. 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 medical-grade linoleum flooring and a natural-gas-fired heating system but also shower and locker-room amenities that make changing back into street clothes comfortable and efficient.
