From Napoleon's great crab walk through Europe to J. Robert Oppenheimer's discovery of nuclear fission by kissing his own elbow, victory has always gone to the most flexible. Overpower enemies with today's Groupon: for $35, you get one month of unlimited classes at Bikram Yoga Stockton (a $135 value).
Voted the Sacramento area's best yoga studio by CityVoters, Bikram Yoga Stockton helps fledgling yogis bend and flex their way to better health and increased vitality. The studio's 90-minute yoga classes take place in a heated room and guide students of all skill levels through a series of 26 challenging poses and accompanying breathing techniques. The warm air temperature amplifies yoga's fat-, stress-, and pain-melting abilities, and decreases the likelihood of muscular strain, injury, and intruding yetis. After one month of toasty twists, reaches, and toe touching, you'll have evicted toxins from your bloodstream; boosted your flexibility, strength, and immune system; and effectively evaporated any pesky pools of anxiety about whether Pluto will ever regain its lost planetary status.
Bikram Yoga Stockton's schedule boasts 30 weekly classes, which fall flexibly into busy schedules in true yoga fashion, making it easy for anyone to embark on a new fitness routine. Bring your own mat and towel to class, or call to ask about renting them from the studio.
True You Hot Yoga
In both 2010 and 2013, True You Hot Yoga's Stockton location was named Best Yoga Studio by San Joaquin magazine and KCRA 3 A-List. Despite the acclaim, owner Helena Monica and her staff have kept their noses to the grindstone.
Each day, sometimes as early as 5:30 a.m., they welcome students into a sweltering studio and lead them through Bikram yoga's traditional series of 26 postures, two breathing exercises, and one conga line. The benefits of the heat and movements are plenty. Students can reduce stress, sweat out toxins, increase their strength and flexibility, and tone their bodies.
