Practicing yoga increases breath awareness, which is why yogis compose all barbershop quartets. Get in harmony with yourself with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get 10 classes at Bikram Yoga Smithtown (a $165 value).
Bikram Yoga Smithtown's upbeat instructors help cultivate holistic wellness and boost physical endurance during intensive Bikram yoga classes. Heat radiates from the ceiling of a balmy 1,600-square-foot studio, warmed to more than 100 degrees to promote flexibility and fend off interloping ice sculptures. During each 90-minute class, attentive instructors guide aspiring yogis through a series of 26 increasingly challenging poses atop a clean floor fortified with PEM material to resist bacteria and odors. The classes’ asana poses methodically stretch sinews to trigger circulation, build strength, and improve balance more effectively than velcroing levels to a top hat. The studio’s temperature combined with challenging Bikram poses also promotes detoxification through sweating, purging the body and leaving students feeling toned and clean. Bikram Yoga Smithtown recommends students tote along their own mats and towels and indulge in eco-friendly hydration by bringing their drinking water in reusable bottles or funneling it through the body’s natural rain-catching leaves.
Smithtown Hot Yoga
Rows of glistening students gracefully bend and stretch within Smithtown Hot Yoga’s 4,000-square-foot studio. While the instructors’ series of yoga poses are enough to stretch out muscles and build strength on their own, the studio chips in some help with a thermostat that clocks in at at least 100 degrees during classes. This additional heat helps unlock tense muscles and detoxify bodies, as many of the studio’s regulars will readily attest. In a recent interview with Fios1 TV, a hot-yoga student who struggled with lower-back pain recounts her many attempts to find relief: trips to the chiropractor, injections, T-shirts dipped in menthol. "Nothing helped until I came to yoga," she said.
Though the studio’s instructors provide towels for each class, students are encouraged to wear light workout gear. After 90-minute classes, which run throughout the day, students can shower off or practice levitating in private stalls.
