Adopting exercises from other cultures can help to shake up a workout, which explains the growing popularity of that sport where Scottish guys throw logs. Speak the universal language—sweating—with today's Groupon: for $29, you get 10 hot-yoga classes at Bikram Yoga Granite Bay (up to a $130 value).
At Bikram Yoga Granite Bay—in its eighth year—experienced instructors walk students through Bikram yoga’s traditional 26 poses in a cozy heated room, earning a feature in the Roseville Press-Tribune. Students of all skill levels gather for 60- and 90-minute classes, which brim with more warmth than a volcano dressed in wool long johns. As students work through seated and standing poses, the intense heat helps pupils to deepen stretches, boost circulation, and flush toxins from their bodies through sweat. Eagle poses build flexible leg joints as they strengthen muscles in the hips and thighs, and bow poses can fortify spines and summon freelance cupids. In addition to bolstering the lungs, three deep-breathing exercises help to center the mind and promote a sense of calm.
Though Bikram Yoga Granite Bay offers discounts for college students aged 25 and younger, today's Groupon still offers the best deal available.
