Yoga is unique in that it is the only medieval physical-fitness art that doesn't involve firing crossbows or dead lifting a chainmail blouse right before the ball. Bend and stretch with today's Groupon: for $49, you get one month of unlimited classes at Bikram Yoga East Harlem (up to a $170 value).
In each class, Bikram Yoga East Harlem’s friendly and experienced instructors guide students through a systematic series of poses designed to move fresh, oxygenated blood to every inch of the body, promoting balanced systems, healthy weight, muscle tone, and mental clarity. Students of all skill levels and lifestyles can glisten their way through 26 challenging postures and two pranayama breathing techniques during their yoga sessions, which take place in a heated room to promote deep-muscle warming and detoxification. The added atmospheric degrees not only help students stretch and move with ease, but also reduce the risk of exercise-related strain, injury, and shiverlimbs. Classes are 90 minutes long and are held at many times each day.
Each pose pupil should grab a yoga mat, water bottle, and bendable spine before class. Each flexing cohort receives access to two studio-provided towels, though additional moisture absorbers can be rented for $0.50 each. Yoga mats and water bottles can also be rented, harpoon hunted, or purchased from the studio ($2 to rent a mat, $2 for water).
Bikram Yoga East Harlem
Native East Harlem resident Stephanie Pope fosters a friendly community of holistic health and wellness with daily Bikram yoga classes held in her roomy two-story studio. An eco-friendly heating system made from recycled aluminum warms the spacious main studio up to detoxifying temperatures, and the lower-wattage system uses a small amount of energy culled from baby lightning bugs. The studio's instructors guide students of all abilities through the 26-posture practice. Students can hit the showers before perusing the art featured in the sitting area's gallery. Bikram Yoga East Harlem also houses an onsite massage therapist by appointment, allowing pupils to supplement their sessions with kneading that mitigates the body and unties any pretzels that have spontaneously sprouted from the back.
