What You'll Get
Bikram yoga became popular after a study concluded that 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 $49, you get a month at yoga at Bikram Yoga Park Slope (up to a $175 value). This Groupon is good at both the Park Slope location and the larger, elbow-roomier location in South Slope. Your month of yoga must be used in 30 consecutive days.
Bikram Yoga Park Slope's impassioned staff is trained and certified in the art of Bikram yoga, which consists of 26 poses and two breathing exercises that center, strengthen, and lengthen every muscle with the muscle-melting powers of a 100-plus-degree room. It's designed to cater to all skill levels, allowing practitioners to choose the rigorousity of each workout. Sweat out toxins and enjoy mind-expanding stretches while breathing deeply; afterward, you'll leave focused, with a cleansed, centered, and worry-free glow. Bring an empty stomach, a bottle of water, a mat, and two towels (can also be rented at the studio for $1). You're encouraged to wear light clothing that won't evaporate in a heated studio during the classes at either Park Slope or South Slope and no clothing during a shower.
This Groupon is valid for new, current, and past students.

About Bikram Yoga Park Slope
Bikram Yoga Park Slope began as a joint venture between husband and wife; Roodolph would teach classes while Jessica papered the town with flyers, assisted by an infant and toddler. Today, the couple presides over two hot yoga studios and oversees a staff of 25 teachers. They offer a full schedule of classes in their largest Park Slope studio and are integrating community programming to better serve the diverse students of Brooklyn.
