Bikram yoga gets its powerful potential for stress relief from a heated practice space, which loosens students’ muscles while softening up the post-class ice cream. Get a scoop of relaxation with today's Groupon: for $40, you get 20 yoga classes at Bikram Yoga River North (a $200 value). Students must be 18 or older.
Bikram Yoga River North boasts a brand new 6800 square foot space and a staff taught by founder Bikram Choudhury, with each guru ready to revitalize world-wearied bodies with a schedule of classes tailored to beginners. Instructors cultivate a studio community where students and health-conscious origami swans fold through Bikram’s 26 different poses during 90-minute sessions that engage muscle from head to toe. Balmy breezes topping out at 110 degrees wash over pupils during class, encouraging malleable muscles resistant to injury and spurring a healthy sweat to oust toxins and pore-size body snatchers through the skin.
Students of all fitness levels tote along a mat, towel, and water bottle for class, taking care to don light threads when braving the heated asanas, including garb such as shorts and T-shirts. Instructors recommend hydrated bodies and empty bellies for a comfortable, potty-break-free session.
