Bikram yoga became popular after a study concluded that the 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 deal: for $25, you get 10 classes at Bikram Yoga Laguna Beach (up to a $165 value), located near the intersection of North Coast Highway and High Drive. All classes must be used within two months of the start of the first class.
Bikram Yoga Laguna Beach's impassioned, certified instructors remix the 26 pliable poses and two breathing exercises from the Bikram, or hot yoga, tradition, bestowing strength and flexibility while priming the different organs of the body to awaken and do their groovy thing. The 90-minute classes take place in a heated room to infuse each move with additional penetrating power and protect the body from injury, and each posture works in succession to prepare and stretch specific muscles, ligaments, and joints needed for the postures that follow. In addition to helping you work up a sweat and exile pesky toxins into a nearby closet, the Bikram method uses concentration, patience, and self-control to increase mental clarity and reduce stress, and the high temperatures elevate your metabolism, making it easier to burn fat.
An inviting and encouraging vibe bounces off current and future rubber bodies at the facility, underscoring the discipline's suitability for most ages, all levels, and three members of the Doobie Brothers. Check the schedule to plan your classes.
Although Bikram Yoga Laguna Beach sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Pacific Blue Yoga
Pacific Blue Yoga began as Bikram Yoga Laguna Beach in 2002. By 2015, however, the studio knew it needed to evolve along with yoga's rapid growth. To do so, Pacific Blue Yoga expanded its offerings beyond hot-yoga sessions to include roughly 30 classes a week in Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and Yin styles, among others, all taught by talented and experienced instructors.
