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 $39, you get 10 classes (up to a $200 value) plus a free kids' class at Bikram Yoga Folsom, located in the Kohl's shopping center in Folsom.
Bikram Yoga Folsom takes beginning benders and veteran twisters alike to more flexible heights with its heated yoga classes. Each 90-minute session ($20) leads limb limberers on a 26-posture pilgrimage in a 105-degree studio, helping muscles to stretch safely and detoxifying the body through perspiration, wishing, and breathing exercises. Regular Bikram bending and stretching can also help relieve aches and pains associated with chronic illness or frequent three-legged races and cleanse the body of mental, emotional, and intergalactic woes.
Starting in September, youngsters can test out body-bending moves in one complimentary kids' yoga class (a $20 value), an unheated, noncompetitive environment that fosters self-confidence and increased concentration. As limber little ones engage in a series of poses, their minds expand to release tension and stress caused by pig-latin spelling bees. Check the schedule for class times and dates.

On the wall above the inner entryway at Bikram Yoga Folsom, a hand-painted quote reminds practitioners why they keep coming back: "You're never too old, never too bad, never too late, never too sick to start from scratch once again". It's this eternal potential for personal betterment that fuels the studio's superheated classes, which combine Bikram yoga's 26 postures and two breathing exercises into workouts that stretch the mind as well as the body. Seasoned instructors lead each class, using experience gained through their extensive training and own personal journeys to create an atmosphere that's both nurturing and challenging, helping students of all skill levels to learn and thrive. In addition to an expansive practice room that's often awash in ample natural light, their vibrant facility houses spacious locker rooms with private showers, and even a relaxing seating area.
