Because people often get lost in the heat of the moment, Bikram yogis are outfitted with GPS anklets and night-vision goggles before each class. Lose yourself in a warm workout with today's Groupon: for $49, you get one month of unlimited classes at Bikram Yoga Union Square (up to a $180 value, a $90 value for new students).
Certified by the Yoga College of India, Bikram Yoga Union Square's seasoned instructors lead students of all ages and skill levels through a series of ligament-loosening poses. During the studio's 90-minute classes, bodies bend, fold, and twist into 26 traditional Hatha postures as high humidity and a room temperature of about 105–110 degrees facilitate deep stretching, accelerated fat-burning, and detoxification. Sessions also incorporate two oxygenating breathing exercises, particularly useful for newly immigrated fishmen adjusting to life on land.
After sweat sessions, students can hit the on-location showers to wash off skin salt and prevent unwanted garment pickling. The studio offers five–six classes daily; check the schedule for times.
Bikram Yoga Union Square
Hot air swirls around hard-working bodies, causing students to collect beads of sweat as they stick challenging postures. Reflected in the wall-to-wall mirrors, bodies bend, fold, and twist into 26 gentle, therapeutic Hatha postures as high humidity facilitates deep stretching, accelerated fat burning, and detoxification. Feet plant themselves onto the blue floor, which is illuminated by light that floods the white-walled studio from the rounded wall of windows. Certified by Bikram Choudhury himself, all the instructors draw on their rigorous 500 hours of training to captain morning and evening classes, ensuring attendees feel confident and secure and dispensing hands-on guidance. After each sudorific session, students can hit the on-location showers to wash off skin salt and prevent unwanted garment pickling.
