Yoga challenges the mind and body without the violence and hurt feelings of full-contact chess. Steer clear of overaggressive pawns with today's Groupon: for $59, you get 10 yoga classes at Bikram Yoga Saanich (up to a $134.40 value).
The certified instructors at Bikram Yoga Saanich cater to students of all skill levels with a packed schedule of morning, afternoon, and evening classes held in a heated room. For 90 minutes, yogi pupils navigate their physiques through 26 different postures and perform breathing exercises, which relax minds more effectively than an evening in the hammock section at the London Symphony Orchestra. The expert body-benders can help first-timers learn techniques or fine-tune the skills of more experienced pupils in front of large mirrors. Within the studio's environmentally friendly confines, students sweat out toxins atop an antimicrobial floor made of recycled rubber and breathe in sanitized air from a UVC air purifier. After classes, yogis rinse off under low-flow showerheads, return to cars parked free of charge in an underground garage, and fold their newly limbered bodies into glove compartments for carpool rides home.
Though Bikram Yoga Saanich sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
