People holding yoga poses typically seek self-discipline and control, whereas those holding yoga posters just want Sting's autograph. Find peace while standing still with today's Groupon: for $29, you get five Bikram yoga classes at Bikram Yoga Paradise Valley (a $75 value).
Bikram Yoga Paradise Valley tones physiques and recharges cerebellums with body-bending hot-yoga classes. Owner Nicole Deacon and a staff of dedicated instructors lead 90-minute sessions suitable for aspiring yogis of all skill levels. In a studio heated to tropical temperatures, students combine breathing exercises with 26 distinct postures and some interpretive polka to help stretch, strengthen, and tone bodies while flushing out toxins in a cleansing sweat. The class schedule makes it easy for weekday workers to snag one of five or six daily sessions, with four options spread across weekend mornings and afternoons. Bikram Yoga Paradise Valley recommends that new students take their first classes in rapid succession to glean the maximum physical benefit, possibly curb sore muscles and learn how to hold a cobra pose long enough to effectively fight public menace Spider-Man.
Though Bikram Yoga Paradise sometimes offers discounts for new students, this Groupon is still the best deal.
Bikram Yoga AZ
Bikram Yoga AZ’s coterie of certified instructors leads students through Bikram yoga’s 26 poses matched to two breathing exercises. Within a studio heated to at least 100 degrees, students flow through poses that strengthen and stretch muscles, ligaments, and joints. Each posture is designed to work muscle groups needed for the next pose, building a series of interconnected movements. Each posture helps to temporarily decrease blood flow to specific areas of the body, sending in a rush of freshly oxygenated blood to joints, organs, and limbs when yogis unfold from folds and twists, unblocking the tiny traffic jams of hemoglobin.
