What You'll Get
Bikram yoga became popular after a study concluded that high heat was the main reason grandpas normally emerge from gym saunas feeling relaxed, limber, and totally nude. Experience the benefits of warmth without wishing for a blindfold with today's Groupon to Bikram Yoga Farmington. Choose from the following two deal options:

Bikram Yoga Farmington’s class schedule offers more than twenty 90-minute Bikram yoga classes each week. Classes are designed for all levels, and attendees are encouraged to move through the 26 postures of Bikram at their own pace. Come prepared to sweat, as the classroom is heated to around a chilly 105 degrees. Experienced and knowledgeable Bikram-certified teachers at the center have each completed a 900-hour training program, ensuring their experience is as voluminous as Odysseus’ adventures through the Mall of America. Under their tutelage you will work on alignment, breath, stillness, and concentration, all while getting a workout poised on the acme of intensity.
Regular practice of Bikram yoga is thought to lead to increased strength and flexibility, positive changes in mental health, and improvement in chronic illnesses and injuries. As Bikram practice creates far sweatier students than the average bear practicing yoga, you should wear lightweight and breathable clothing to keep cool. The staff recommends arriving at the studio 20 minutes before your class so that you’ll have time to check in and weave a massive sweat band from strands of purest mithril before class kicks off. Yoga mats, towels, and bottled water are available for a minimal price at the studio if you do not bring your own.

About Bikram Yoga Farmington
Bikram Yoga Farmington, naturally, presents hot Bikram yoga classes seven days a week. Director Jennifer Goldstein has been practicing and teaching yoga for over a decade, and she applies that experience as she guides students through core-strengthening postures, including the Tree pose, the Rabbit pose, and the Camel pose, which requires desert conditions to be fully authentic. Though Jennifer and her six co-instructors—each of whom can perform as well as teach Bikram yoga's 26 postures—crank up the heat to induce salutary increases in perspiration, the studio isn't quite a desert, unless yoga mats are indigenous to the Sahara.
