Bikram yoga became popular after a study concluded 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 Groupon: for $39, you get 30 days of unlimited classes at Bikram Yoga Fort Collins and Bikram Yoga Greeley (up to a $110 value).
Bikram Yoga's bikram-certified instructors lead body benders through a slew of sweat-inducing workouts. Each 90-minute course is suitable for beginners, making it accessible for experienced yogis and those who thought yoga was a really good Jedi master. Students of all skill levels will bend waists, twist torsos, and lengthen appendages during a series of challenging holding, stretching, and balancing poses. Classes take place inside a 105-degree studio that will release toxins via sweat, making yogis feel like an icy drink on a hot day, or an adolescent's hand on a first date.
Skeleton stretchers should bring a large towel, washcloth, yoga mat, and water bottle, and dress as lightly as possible. See the Greeley and Fort Collins schedules for class times to purge your system of pesky toxins, soften your muscles and tendons into Gumbyesque suppleness, and sweat out tension from every pore.
Although Bikram Yoga Fort Collins and Bikram Yoga Greeley feature a discounted price for students online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Bikram Yoga Fort Collins and Greeley
Great minds think alike, and this was definitely true for Kyle Baxter—a professional tree climber—and Bridget Baxter—an accomplished high-school and college cross-country and track runner. Each certified instructor owned or worked at a local Bikram studio, but it wasn’t until they met at a Bikram yoga convention in 2006 that they discovered each other. Now the married couple oversees two Bikram yoga locations, which offer classes for students of any level seven days a week. Each studio is kept at a toasty 105 degrees, and sessions are led by a certified Bikram instructor who guides patrons through muscle-building and stretching poses that promote healthy, lean bodies. A large towel, yoga mat, and water bottle are recommended for each class, so the studios offer rental towels and mats for those whose dog ate their yoga mat along with their homework.
